Kangaroo Jack: G'Day USA!Close
Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Kangaroo Jack: G'Day USA! is a goofy 2004 animated movie about a kangaroo who is captured by poachers and sent to perform in Las Vegas, where he instead wreaks all kinds of slapsticky havoc. While mostly silly, the humor does skew toward obnoxiousness -- with food fights, kangaroo boxing, and audible, odorous, and ill-timed flatulence. While the plight of exotic animals captured by poachers is shown in this movie, this is mostly a lighthearted caper jam-packed with pratfalls and some cartoonish violence in the form of kicking kangaroos and characters knocking out other characters with frying pans.
- Sexual Content
- Two male characters strip down to their boxers when confronted by a panther who starts to sniff and lick at their food-stained clothes. After telling his friends about the dream he just awoke from and when asked about other dreams he's had, Louis answers "I'd rather not say."
- Some pratfalls and cartoonish violence (in the form of kicking kangaroos and characters knocking out other characters with frying pans). Also, poachers capture a kangaroo and other exotic animals.
- A character mistakenly calls an Aborigine leader "Funky Dookie."
- Social Behavior
- While intended to entertain, the film does call attention to the plight of exotic animals illegally captured in the wild and sent away to "perform" thousands of miles outside their natural habitats.
