It is one of the best cartoon movie I watched with some real charters in the movie. When it comes to animation. I usually don't care for. This is one great comedy movie all the way
The worst movie I have ever seen

"Simply put, Kangaroo Jack was awful. I'll keep this review brief, because so much has already been said about the film, but here are my reasons for hating it so profusely:
1) It was advertised as a talking animal movie (or at least, this was implied by the ads). The only scene in which the "Kangaroo Jack" talks is a very brief one in which one of the characters is hallucinating. KANGAROO JACK IS A COMPLETELY NORMAL KANGAROO IN THE REST OF THE FILM.
2) It has one of the weakest plots ever, and not enough action/jokes/anything to compensate for it. Seriously, this movie is BORING. The only interesting scenes involve Estella Warren, and they're only interesting because she's hot.
3) The jokes simply aren't funny. A twelve-year-old might chuckle at one or two of them; anyone else will likely rip out their ears and scream.
4) Although kids might laugh at the movie's pathetic jokes, the film really isn't even appropriate for children. There's too much crude and sexual humor: from the scene where passengers on an airplane mistakenly think the main characters are playing with poop in the airplane bathroom to the scene where Charlie squeezes one of Jessie's (clothed) breasts.
But the bottom line is that the movie is stupid and boring. Hooray!"
Welcome back, zany adventure!

"Here's one of those special movies that remind us of the better old-time adventure films, where everything fits together to give us just the right level of enjoyment, suspense, and humor. Many a modern "action" film depends on pushing the action to ever more extreme levels to entertain us with something new. But all too often that is symptomatic of a void in what else the movie has to offer. But this movie doesn't need that. It keeps us entertained because the protagonists are likeable, never boring, and they have adventures that are funny to boot. A stepson of a mob figure is sent with his buddy to Australia, to deliver a payment for a routine mob transaction, or, so he and his buddy think. But there are surprises awaiting them there, and the plot will keep you wondering as it plays out, as they encounter one misadventure after another, from a kangaroo they run over and presume to have killed, to a plane ride they won't soon forget. But I'll say no more. See and enjoy to find out how it all plays out in the land down under."
Cute, and ultimately good fun

"The Kangaroo sold me in the commercials. So did Jerry O'Connell and Anthony Anderson, so I gave the movie a chance. It payed off. This movie was adorable, good clean fun. Besides the camel flatulence and one other racy joke, the PG rating is totally appropriate. Kids should really enjoy this, and for adults, the two stars should hold their attention. And the Kangaroo... well he's fun for everybody to look at."
