Check out Kidzworld's review on the latest adventure movie, Kangaroo Jack, starring Jerry O'Connell, Anthony Anderson and Estella Warren. With mobs after them and a fast hoppin' kangaroo in front of them, two Brooklyn goofballs set off through the Austral

If you are up for an action flick, packed with hilarious scenes, then Kangaroo Jack is the movie for you, mate! Kangaroo Jack is a comedy about two Brooklyn guys, Charlie (played by Jerry O'Connell) and Louis (Anthony Anderson,) who are magnets for bad luck. When they deliver some mob money to the beautiful land "down undah" (Australia, for all of you with a Joey-from-Friends kind of brain,) the bad luck follows them!

The two goofballs arrive in Australia with 50 thousand dollars of mob money and the first thing they do is lose the dough. They manage that by hitting a kangaroo with their car, putting the jacket, with the money in the pocket, onto the "dead" kangaroo, who then wakes up and hops away with the money! The quest to find the jacket-wearing, Twizzlers-chewing kangaroo transforms Kangaroo Jack into an eventful, funny movie that's a must-see.

The entire movie theater, packed with parents, teens and pre-teens, laughed throughout the movie - especially during the farting camel scene. The camel seemed to have had one bean burrito too many that day! The only downside to the movie is that there are a few scenes that might make you question its PG rating. There are a few questionable moments, but the movie makes light of those situations with some ultra-funny jokes.

If you dig animal humor and action movies then check out Kangaroo Jack!

    When Matt Smith took over from David Tennant I was thinking it was gonna be horrible and then after the second episode I thought he was epicals too.  At first I was thinking Capaldi looked alot older but I like things hes done so far and hes still Doctor Who but the different actor..  and Im thinking hes gonna be awesome too.

    He's around the same age as the First Doctor and a few other Classic Doctors, so I don't really think he's "too" old. But I guess after Matt and David it's a big change.

    Matt Smith was the best doctor. When he first came I was like 'nah, no-one can beat david tennant' but he's definitely my favourite now. Im not sure Capaldi is right for the doctor. He's a great actor but he's too old :P
