Kangaroo Jack ★ 2002 (PG)

Pals O'Connell and Anderson are forced to deliver mob money to Australia, but it's accidentally stolen from them by a kangaroo. If this sounds like a sad excuse for a movie, it is. Aside from some beautiful shots of the Australian landscape, there's little redeeming value. Jokes are lowbrow and (even worse) not funny, script is bland and mainly uninspired. Walken must've owed producer Jerry Bruckheimer a favor. The kangaroo was computer-generated, but still had more charisma than any of the leading actors. 88m/C VHS, DVD . US Jerry O'Connell, Anthony Anderson, Estella Warren, Michael Shannon, Christopher Walken, Bill Hunter, Marton Csokas, David Ngoombujarra; D: David McNally; W: Steve Bing, Scott Rosenberg; C: Peter Menzies Jr.
