Louis Fucci (Barbershop
’s Anthony Anderson) saved the life of Charlie Carbone (Scream 2
’s Jerry O’Connell) during their childhood and never lets him forget it. Twenty years later, the bungling buddies stir up cop trouble in Brooklyn for Charlie’s mobster father-in-law (Christopher Walken) and are given one chance for redemption: Deliver $50,000 to a crime crony in the Australian wilderness or get fitted for cement boots. The money winds up in the pocket of a coat that Louis and Charlie put on a kangaroo as a lark. Jack the kangaroo bounds into the wilderness with Charlie, Louis, Sal’s goons, an Outback hit man, an American wildlife conservationist (Estella Warren really slumming here) and a drunken bush pilot all in pursuit in a ragged comedy that features much more lame slapstick action than bouncing beast.
