When aired on Nickelodeon, the part where Charlie putting his hand on Jessie's breast during his mirage daze was cut out. So instead, it showed Charlie about to reach out before being hit in the head with the water canister by Jessie. Also, the part where Blue says "Never should have left the pub!" was edited out.

I am very hard on Movies and will admit that this is a Silly kind of movie but it was easy to follow and was in all honesty, very, very funny. Better than most Adam Sandler movies and minus all the language and sexual content that Sandler and others seem to sneak into movies they try and sell to "kids". This is a typical O'Connell role and he plays it well. Estella Warren spices it up and keeps her integrity as an actress in check. She looks good no matter what she does anyway but the movie does not lower her standards at all. It is a great movie for the adults to laugh with and the kids in the theatre were having a blast. Plus, anytime Movie Critics trash a film, the odds are it will be a weekend Number #1 movie and you will like it. It did $18 million on the open and will clear $40 mil easily. Not bad for the budget it was made with. Good Job Bruck... 6 stars out of 10....
Have a great time and don't be to picky or critical. It is a movie about a Kangaroo after all!!
