When they are walking across the desert after the air crash, their shadows are precisely to their left. Since Australia is in the Southern Hemisphere, this means that they must be walking generally west, yet, in the previous scene, they have only just asked for directions on how to walk east.

During the Jerry Bruckheimer Films logo at the beginning of the movie, you can briefly see two kangaroos crossing the street. See more »
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.

Unfortunately, I was babysitting my young cousins, and I wanted to watch a movie because there was nothing else to do. I searched through the titles and found "Clock Stoppers", "Fools Rush In" and "Kangaroo Jack". I decided to watch "Kangaroo Jack", mostly because I hate teen movies and romantic comedies. Guess what? I now hate movies about talking CGI animals.
I have to admit, the first few minutes were okay. Bruckheimer seemed to want to put in a few of his trademark "chase scenes", which caused a little entertainment. Also, Christopher Walken appeared, so I was content.
It started going down hill (well, further down hill) when one of the characters has a dream sequence about talking kangaroos. After that, the 'quality' of the movie became so bad that I didn't know whether the whole thing was still a dream sequence, or whether I was dreaming - it made that much sense (incidentally, I had my first sip of beer that night, so I made have been unexpectedly drunk, though I doubt it).
Anyway, terrible, unfunny movie, 3/10.
