Review of Kangaroo Jack


This is a movie with a kangaroo and money. Cory from Cory in the House grows up to be the dad from ABC’s Blackish and he is friends with Vern from Stand by Me. Anyways, they work for the guy from Deer Hunter and he asks them to deliver $50,000 to Australia. When the duo reaches Australia, tone puts their jacket on a kangaroo. The kangaroo then hops away with the jacket. The money was in the jacket. So, the guys have to chase this kangaroo to get the money back. Then they meet this Canadian figure skater in the Outback. They also fly a plane and crash it. But they survive. Also, the kangaroo can’t talk but when Vern like gets hurt or thirsty or something he watches the kangaroo rap “Rapper’s Delight” by Sugarhill Gang. Get it, it’s a song about “hipping” and “hopping.” While this is happening, the kangaroo admits his name is Jackie Legs. At the end of the song, I am seriously not kidding, the kangaroo chorus starts chanting “Chicken blood!” at Vern. Then stuff happens and the movie gets near the end. Like, Vern saves the dad from ABC, and the girl gets camels, and falls in love with one of them. I do know that the movie ends with this really uncomfortable heart-to-heart conversation between the duo about friendship and dying. Then they hug and explain that it is “a non-gay moment” because the Canadian figure skater is right there and they don’t want her to get the wrong idea, because one of the guys definitely likes her. IMDb give the movie a 4.4 and that’s right. Thank you.
