Two childhood friends, a New York hairstylist and a would-be musician, get caught up with the mob and are forced to deliver $50,000 to Australia, but things go haywire when the money is lost to a wild kangaroo.
Louis Booker and Charlie Carbone are close friends with an association with the mob. After the duo botch a delivery of stolen TVs, the duo are given a second chance by mob leader Sal Maggio, who happens to be Charlie's stepfather. The duo are to deliver $50,000 to a contact in Australia. As simple as the job sounds, complications emerge when a kangaroo steals the money. Now Charlie and Louis must find the kangaroo and get the money back before they find themselves in a worse predicament. Written by
The most difficult sound design for Kangaroo Jack was the farting camels and because they can't fart on cue, they've tried several failed attempts to make a perfect realistic farting sound. They've tried whoopie cushions, blowing on jello, armpit farts all the way down to using they're own mouths. So in sheer desperation the sound designer ate bean burritos, beef tacos, baked beans and milk, and they basically let the sounds come naturally. See more »

Sal won't kill you. He's married to your mother.
If Sal Maggio thinks I stole his money, he'll kill me in front of my mother and then make her clean it up.

Regardless of its faults, my 7 year old daughter and I had fun and enjoyed the movie, which is what counts. Obviously, the movie is not intended to be a masterpiece or believable, but children will find it very funny and adults may enjoy it too.
