Is it great? No. But it's a good movie for the whole family to lighten up a bit.

The bopping, socking marsupial hero of Kangaroo Jack packs quite a comic wallop.

Brainless and silly and full of pratfalls and physical humour -- all of which will make you giggle in spite of yourself.
| Original Score: 3.5/5

Jack is reminiscent of such films as Short Circuit, The Monster Squad and the Don Knotts vehicles of the late Sixties - certainly not the most well constructed pieces of entertainment, but endearing nevertheless.

The film has a lively bounce, brisk pacing and a sense of humor that younger viewers can appreciate.

There really is a nice core to the movie, and O'Connell and Anderson are equally adept at getting laughs by playing up the characters' manic drive to keep going.

High-spirited and even endearing...Kangaroo Jack is far better than it has any right to be.

A ragged comedy that features much more lame slapstick action than bouncing beast.

Parents beware: this film is too crude, violent and offensive for younger viewers.

Oh, how I wish I didn't know 'Jack'.

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.

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.

A competent and workmanlike action-adventure romp for kids, briefly enlivened by a funny cameo from Christopher Walken.

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
