Kangaroo Jack is about two friends, Charlie Carbone and Louis Booker, who after some unfortunate events have become involved with the mob and are entrusted with 50 grand which is to be delivered to someone named Mr. Smith in Australia. Sadly for Charlie and Louis, they hit a kangaroo with their rented vehicle and the kangaroo escapes with the money so, they must figure out how to track and find the kangaroo before the leader of the mob, Salvatore Maggio, who is also Charlie’s father, finds out. Kangaroo Jack is filled with moments of laughter and I really enjoyed watching Charlie and Louis’s journey to find the Kangaroo. I think Kangaroo Jack would be a good family film and I would definitely recommend it. Overall, I would rate Kangaroo Jack 4/5.

Kangaroo Jack is nothing more than a very silly little farce about a kangaroo who makes off with The Mob's dough.

This film is super-lightweight comedy. And, it is basically unremarkable, despite some truly funny moments that pop up once in a while.

As the story tediously rolls along - Two childhood buds (one a dreamer, the other a mob boss's stepson) must retrieve the long-gone cash from the speedy marsupial before consequences escalate out of control and take a real ugly turn for the worst.

Warning! - The scatological humour in this flick in greatly overdone. And, once again, flatulence is repeatedly mistaken for laughing gas.
