Being teased for his color, Johnny (Rob Schneider) the white koala joins a travelling carnival with Hamish (Bret McKenzie), a Tasmanian devil, and Higgens (Yvonne Strahovski), a photographer monkey, as talent agents. On the way through the Australian outback, the trailer they are in comes loose and crashes. Johnny must live up to the hero status Hamish presents him as while the outback locals try to rescue a kidnapped koala from Bog (Alan Cumming), a giant crocodile and his dingo lackeys.Written by
The animation is the only thing decent in this movie! None of the voices even go close to Australian accents. The scenery is inaccurate and the wildlife depicted are a far cry from Australian creatures. The creators of this movie would have done a much better job if they had hired some great'Australian voices like Geoffrey Rush, Hugh Jackman or Nicole Kidman. To hire New Zealand and American actors to depict Aussie accents is an insult to Australia. They should have also visited Australia to get a more accurate view of the scenery in the Outback! Do yourself a favour and watch Crocodile Dundee instead if you want an Aussie fix.
