    “Kangaroo Jack” took a lot of heat when it came out, mainly because it turned out it wasn’t actually about some sort of jive-talking, wise-cracking kangaroo. Unsuspecting parents walked in expecting to sit through a boring kid’s movie, but eventually had to sit through a cleverly disguised (yet still boring) toilet comedy. Since then a lot of people have criticised the movie’s blatant false advertising (the trailer is one of the most hilariously misleading things you’ll ever see), which is unfortunate because they often ignore that the movie itself just totally blows as well. Who’s even supposed to be the demographic for this? Is there some kind of underground society of Anthony Anderson fans I don’t know (or want to know) about? Are there people that just watch ANY movie set in the Australian outback, regardless of what it’s about or how annoying the people in it are? The whole movie seems like an afterthought of the marketing campaign, it’s almost like the makers forgot they actually still had to make this thing for a while. I guess that’s the way you make a killing at the box office, but that doesn’t mean I have to like it. Woeful film.
