Review
KANGAROO JACK is not only terrific, but it is a very special treat that we Aussies watch and is a one of a kind of hopping comedy films. I enjoyed the hilarious part where Charlie and Louis put the jacket on the kangaroo that they mistakenly run over and then Charlie gets kicked in face by the same animal.

Although it was mistaken as a taking animal feature for kids because of its trailer, yet KANGAROO JACK wasn't average, its hysterical and it's my fourth favourite comedy film that I really enjoyed.

Star rating: (5/5) Best Movie Ever
