Goofs

When Charlie is about to jump into the water fall pool with Jessie he is still wearing the "body paint" they used to disguise their scent from Kangaroo Jack. Before he jumps in, his paint disappears and reappears with each shot. He finally jumps in and without scrubbing at all, and comes out spotless and free of body paint. See more »

Quotes

Charlie: Uh-oh. Dingos.
Charlie: Hey that one kinda looks like Waffles.
Louis: Yeah if Waffles had a crazed look in her eyes and her face caked in blood.

My 7 year old daughter and I had some laughs
7 February 2003 | by (Atlanta, GA) – See all my reviews

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.
