Just before Charlie and Louis hit Kangaroo Jack the jeep's shadow shows that the sun is low in the sky on the left. After they hit the kangaroo, the sun is on the right. Just after the Kangaroo wakes up and jumps off the jeep, the sun is back on the left again. See more »

Wrong answer! Your friend told us the yarn about the kangaroo. Mate, I've hope for your sake you were stupid enough to hide that money in them saddle bags.
You gotta believe us!

No, you gotta believe me. If it ain't there, I'm gonna carve you up piece by piece.

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.

After watching the final cut of Kangaroo Jack, I emplore each and every film fan in the world to stay home and avoid this 90 minutes of torture. The 'comedy' and I use that word very loosely, follows the adventures of two friends who misplace a bag of money with a kangaroo. Naturally hilarity ensues. This film reminds me of the Holocaust. 0(zero) stars out of 5.
