Ozzie is a young koala living in Australia. He is kidnapped by two goons (Buzz and Tank) who work for Max Happy, president of Happy Toys. Legend says that Ozzie speaks English and Max wants to clone Ozzie into hundreds of koalas and sell them for a fortune as talking pets! Buzz and Tank "lose" Ozzie on the plane-ride home by accident to Justin Morton, an 8 year old who is celebrating his birthday with his mom, Beth with a trip to Austrailia. Ozzie winds up in Justin's backpack. When Max finds out the koala is missing, a screwball comedy chase begins and ends in a surprise that knocks Max off her throne! Written by
My 5 year old son picked this rental and he loves it! We watched repeatedly over the weekend. I had never heard of it, or noticed it on the shelf before, but I am really glad he did. Full of harmless, silly fun, he laughed a lot at the antics of the Koala and the bumbling bad guys. It has those silly bumbling type of Hollywood bad guys that are not scary, so I didn't have to worry about scary stuff. More for kids than parents, the kind of movie you can put on while keeping one eye on the kids and cooking dinner or using the computer. The koala is obviously fake which is OK for this kind of movie. Not one the family is going to gather around repeatedly but one the kids can watch alone or with a pal. Surprised it came out in 2001, as this is our first time finding it
