Trivia

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 »

Goofs

When chasing the kangaroo in their rental 4WD, an aerial shot shows it to be longer wheelbase with a spare wheel on the bonnet and a khaki colour. When it cuts back to a land based shot the car is dark blue, shorter and no spare wheel. See more »

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.
