Inspired by an urban legend about a pair of Boston college students on break in Australia. While driving through the Outback, they accidentally hit a kangaroo with their Land Rover. Thinking they had killed it, they got out and placed the driver's Boston Red Sox jacket on the kangaroo to take a picture before moving on. However, the kangaroo was merely unconscious, and awoke in the midst of the photo-taking. It broke free and took off across the Outback, still wearing the Sox jacket...along with the keys to the Land Rover in the pocket. See more »
In the car chase at the end, we see a camera in one shot, and a few crew members next to a large rock for a few seconds. See more »
The people responsible for this should be tried for crimes against humanity.
The whole premise of this film* is based on an urban myth. Thats not the only myth. That this is a film is a myth.
If it seemed to be aimed at kids it would still be no excuse for the effort we are shown. I know there are lots of dumb guy movies such as any L&H and Dumb and Dumber which is a masterpiece in comparison. The two main characters were instantly dis likable and remained so throughout. I cant think of anything else, it depresses me too much.
*film = entertaining and professionally made cinematographic art.
