Kangaroo Jack Reviews
October 1, 2020
Of course this American-made, Australian-set caper comedy is ten tonnes of terrible. How could it not be?
August 7, 2008
A ragged comedy that features much more lame slapstick action than bouncing beast.

Brainless and inane, this is for undemanding kids only.

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

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.

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.

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-ttulo aparece pouco ao longo da projeo: se somarmos todas as suas cenas, possvel que o resultado no passe de 15 minutos. E se estes 15 minutos j so ruins, imaginem os 75 minutos restantes...

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.

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