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

Brainless and silly and full of pratfalls and physical humour -- all of which will make you giggle in spite of yourself.

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.

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.

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.

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.
