A very bad movie -- shouldn't have been PG.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
August 7, 2008
A ragged comedy that features much more lame slapstick action than bouncing beast.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
March 5, 2007
Likable but negligible.
December 30, 2006
Brainless and inane, this is for undemanding kids only.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
June 24, 2006
Parents beware: this film is too crude, violent and offensive for younger viewers.

Oh, how I wish I didn't know 'Jack'.
November 2, 2004
It's a thin, tedious caper only notable for its impressive Outback locations and a cameo from Christopher Walken that proves the word 'no' isn't in his vocabulary.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Whatever reasons led to the creation and release of this sorry excuse for entertainment, parents looking for some weekend fun with the little ones can safely steer clear of Kangaroo Jack.

No one seems to have any idea whether this is an action movie, a comedy, a kid's movie or perhaps a bizarre experiment in kangaroo torture.

Remember when Jerry O'Connell had a future?

July 8, 2003
A competent and workmanlike action-adventure romp for kids, briefly enlivened by a funny cameo from Christopher Walken.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

The movie is crap, but no more so than you'd expect from something with [i]Kangaroo Jack[/i] on the title card and Jerry Bruckheimer's name under the producer credit.
| Original Score: 1.5/4

If you can imagine how painful it would be to wander aimlessly lost for days on end through the Australian outback, that's how the eighty-nine minutes of this film go by.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/10

David McNally basically made a mob comedy, realized it wasn't funny and then added in computer-generated shots of the kangaroo that didn't require paying actors for reshoots.

January films are the comeuppance all film critics must suffer for the treasures thrown at them during November and December. Seeing that 2002's holiday slate was one of the richest in memory, something tells me I'm in for 31 days of pain like no other.

O personagem-título aparece pouco ao longo da projeção: se somarmos todas as suas cenas, é possível que o resultado não passe de 15 minutos. E se estes 15 minutos já são ruins, imaginem os 75 minutos restantes...

If only Walken had met up with the kangaroo...

Parents may find themselves growing tired of the immature undertone, but the charismatic odd couple of O'Connell and Anderson is enough to emphasize the film's light-hearted feel.
| Original Score: 1.5/4

I'm sorry to say that Kangaroo Jack is top of my 2003 'worst list' so far.

Luckily, Australians can't take offence at the lame Aussie "you'd be a banger short of a barbie" stereotypes, because the American characters are just as puerile.
