Kangaroo Jack (11-Jan-2003)

Director: David McNally

Writers: Steve Bing; Barry O'Brien; Scott Rosenberg

Music by: Trevor Rabin

Producer: Jerry Bruckheimer

Keywords: Crime/Comedy, Australia

Childhood friends forced to deliver money to Australian criminals fight to recover their loot after a rapping kangaroo steals it.

ABSTRACT
Brooklyn hairdresser Charlie Carbone and petty criminal Louis Booker are lifelong friends; crime boss Sal is Charlie's stepfather and creditor, desiring the repayment of a large loan handed out to Charlie some time ago. Deciding to exploit poor Charlie for a "favor" instead, Sal sends the buddies out to Australia to deliver a hefty sum of cash to powerful baddie Mr. Smith; an accident with a kangaroo upon arrival in the exotic land sends them scrambling when the scheming, rapping marsupial hops off with their loot, with no intention of giving it back. Not exactly a high point for juvenile comedy; choice viewing for purveyors of ridiculous cinema.
