Trailers for the movie emphasized the tacked-on "talking kangaroo" scene, which gave audiences a false impression that this was a family film involving a talking kangaroo. Posters also emphasized the kangaroo. The misleading publicity is often credited with the film's achieving the #1 box office spot on opening weekend; industry observers said later that if the film had been more honestly portrayed as what it was, as a gangster comedy with fairly adult humor, it probably would have failed. The film had dismal reviews from critics and considerable backlash from audiences who felt they had been tricked. There was a direct-to-DVD sequel that was more in line with what was promised by trailers, as it was an animated family comedy. See more »

During the usual "Jerry Bruckheimer Production" credit at the beginning of the movie, you can briefly see two kangaroos crossing the street. See more »
I was expecting a huge success once I saw, a Jerry Bruckheimer Production. But boy was I wrong. The story line was so basic and random. As well as some very immature qoutes from two grown men. The good humor in this film was pretty much the only thing having it from being a box office bomb.
Wait, the CGI of Kangaroo was pretty good, but there were some obvious scenes where the kangaroo looked extremely fake.
All in all this was a rather strange movie but had its moments. I agree with the user ratings.
