Oh God, I remember this thing from when I was just a little kid.
It was awful.

Azmar

(It hopped ITS* way.)

Raptor Rex
Guest

Well, at least the animated sequel is better… still not great but still, it’s at least more enjoyable than the first film.

Blayshy
Guest

Wait, there is a sequel??

Raptor Rex
Guest

G’Day USA, the animated movie!

Someoneelse
Guest

It came up like 3 times in the review.

slashmaster28
Guest

Yeah, Doug even mentions it very early on in the review.

Goldstar
Guest

I’m guessing that you haven’t actually watched the video at this point, because Doug mentions the animated sequel at the beginning of the review.

Moon Spirit
Guest

I never saw this movie. Thank god I never did. This movie looks so godawful, especially farting camels and toilet humor.

Camseyeview

The opening joke and the last joke kind of fall flat since they announced what they were going to review two weeks ago. I mean, I think it’s interesting that Kangaroo Jack was a different movie at first since that reminds me of the situation with Old Dogs from Disney, where it was tested as an adult comedy, but was panned, and then redid everything to make it a kids film.

solid review. kind of curious how much Kangaroo jack is in the actual film. Anyone know how long he is in the actual movie?

Kneel
Guest

Ikr it’s not like the link you click on each week says what movie they’re reviewing

Camseyeview
Guest

They said it on Facebook two weeks ago…..

ThatRandomGuest
Guest

I think you might be thinking of Sled Dogs. Old Dogs is a completely different movie with John Travolta (I don’t even think that movie was even about dogs).

I can’t watch 🙁 Vidme is being laggy and there’s no quality wheel to turn it down 🙁

Goldstar
Guest

The video plays smoother on the vid.me website. There’s not so many ads and junk running in the background.

SpeedyEric
Guest

The same happened to me, but now I can watch the videos clearly, because I got a brand new computer last month.

horse14t
Guest

Lucky!

horse14t
Guest

Tried it and it didn’t make a difference.
Instead I just begrudgingly opened Microsoft Edge and watched it there perfectly fine.

Goldstar
Guest

Hey, whatever works, right? What’s wrong with Microsoft Edge? I wouldn’t make it my default, but it’s a definite improvement over Internet Explorer, which doesn’t take much since IE was terrible.

horse14t
Guest

I just don’t like the way it looks or functions. Though I will say it is far better then IE! I just prefer to use Firefox instead.

JachAnen
Guest

I use Firefox with no issues. Might be the adblocker or it needs to be re-installed. Could also be your processor as Firefox use more of that power than others, but usually cheaper in RAM.
Also just remembered I once had an issue with it because of Hardware Acceleration was turned on.

Jalen Washington
Guest

Huh… I was actually okay with this movie as a kid. Then again, I have horrible taste in movies, so *shrugs*.

Someoneelse
Guest

Seriously get rid of all that crap blocking the comments.

MountCDOSgamer
Guest

I second this. It takes forever to scroll down to them. The recommended videos should be under the comments or to the side of them, not above them.

Twilight Man
Guest

Underneath the title of the review are the “posted by” and “date” links, then comes the comments link. Click on that, and it will “zip” you right here.

Mides
Guest

“I second this. It takes forever to scroll down to them.”

Oh, woe is me! I have to scroll my mouse wheel a whole three times to get to the comments section! THREE TIMES!

Be grateful you even live in a time with internet at all.

MountCDOSgamer
Guest

Maybe I should have been more specific. When I scroll down to the comments, every time it looks like I’m at the comments, another row of videos pop up.

Goat Boy
Guest

Right out the gate, my middle finger is itching. Seriously, dude, theatrical releases of your reviews? Do enough people actually go to those to warrant more?

Mides
Guest

Hey, I’m disappointed that he won’t hold them on a weekend in the Chicagoland area either, but you don’t have to get all salty about it.

SpeedyEric
Guest

He did it before with Suicide Squad. Grow the hell up.

Goldstar
Guest

Apparently, yes. Channel Awesome wouldn’t keep doing these if people weren’t going to see them. But no one’s forcing you to attend, so why does the fact that they’re doing this bother you so much?

Rachel J
Guest
SMDH, this has to be the single pettiest post I have ever seen! “I’m a scum douche bag who wants to flip doug off for holding his review in a movie screening. Waaah, I don’t any money so I can’t go see it so durr hurr middle finger!” YOU DON’T TO SEE IT RETARD! IT’S OPTIONAL! I can’t go, I’ll watch it online, but that’s fine. And yes retard a lot of people in the area the video is showing will go, because they are fans and want to go see it. You come off as a whiny little brat.… Read more »

I’ve seen Ed Wood films that make more sense than this film.

Kneel
Guest

Basically just spent the whole review envying Malcolm

slashmaster28
Guest

22:10- Okay, now you have to at least do a Vlog series on this show since I know you’ve never seen it. Anyway, yeah, I liked this film when I first saw it, but in the same vein that I enjoyed Wild Wild West back in the day. It’s because I was just the right age to watch it, too young for the intended audience but young enough to actually enjoy its low-brow humor.

MountCDOSgamer
Guest

I had no idea the animated movie was a sequel to this. I thought it was a completely unrelated movie spinning off of the cartoon this movie was based on, but it seems there is no cartoon this was based on.

Raptor Rex
Guest

I suppose it could be it’s own thing; heck it may as well be.

MountCDOSgamer
Guest

I figured no original film could have so little focus on its titular character. By the way, I suppose it should come as no surprise this was inspired by Snow Dogs when both films bait audiences into thinking the animals in it talk in the trailer when, in both cases, such scenes were just dreams.

TragicGuineaPig
Guest

Speaking of Green Lantern, I’m kind of hoping they’ll have John Stewart in the new Justice League. Stewart was my favorite Green Lantern, ever since the Justice League animated series.

Mides
Guest

He’s also my favorite political satirist.

(That joke hasn’t been done to death yet, has it?)

SpeedyEric
Guest

You thinking of Jon Stewart without the H.

The Real Silverstar
Guest

To quote McBain: “That’s the joke.”

Twilight Man
Guest

“You suck, McBain!!”

Honore de Ballsack
Guest

it sounds like Homer yelled that

TragicGuineaPig
Guest

I’d post a link to the Sad Trombone, but I’d have to wait for the comment to get moderated.

SpeedyEric
Guest

I also thought the John Stewart Green Lantern was awesome since I first saw him in that awesome series. Tyrese Gibson is interested in playing him, and I think he’ll do good if he’s cast.

TragicGuineaPig
Guest

Tyrese has experience playing a military man, and that would be a good fit, since Stewart was a former Marine. That’s kind of how they played him in JL.

Blaze The Movie Fan
Guest

I will say I enjoy the reviewing portion of this review, but the skit here is lackluster. That’s of course only my opinion, with that being said that’s the only problem I have with this video.

Davanthall
Guest

I saw this movie as a 13 year old and even then I thought it was stupid…

Stephen Brady
Guest

You do realize now that I will be demanding you to review Samurai Jack till the end of days!

Welshguy
Guest

Please don’t be like that Omega guy.

Goldstar
Guest

You do know that there are already plenty of videos about people reviewing Samurai Jack, right?

The Real Silverstar
Guest

Yeah, the Blockbuster Buster just did an Honest Review of it about a month or so ago.

Stephen Brady
Guest

Yeah I know I know. Shouldn’t have said demanded. Honestly, it would be nice but if he doesn’t then it’s fine. I’m happy he even mentioned it!

Fulchrum
Guest

Considering one of those mugshots was from fighting Nazis, I’m gonna give Lebouf a pass.

SpeedyEric
Guest

Me too. The man has been getting too much backlash than needed.

RayO_ElGatubelo
Guest

Doug bashes the camel farting, but it paid off.

This movie won the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Award for “Favorite Fart in a Movie.”

It beat out Fat Bastard. Seriously. It’s true.

Welshguy
Guest

Keep being classy Nickelodeon. (Seriously, Nickelodeon really has an unhealthy obsession with farting ever since the 90’s.)

Mides
Guest

Nickelodeon? More like Ni-Crohn-lodeon.

ThatRandomGuest
Guest

And burps, pee, poo, boogers and slime and a whole lot of other gross stuff. It’s kind of their gimmick. And I’m not going to lie, a lot of kids find that stuff completely funny.

starfall42

Kangaroo Jack did lose the MTV Movie Awards “Best Virtual Performance” to Golem, though. (Other nominees were Scooby Doo and Dobby.)

Le Messor
Guest

(I assume you mean Gollum from LotR? If so, it’s the first time I’ve seen that mistake go that way; usually I hear people pronouncing ‘golem’ as ‘Gollum’.)

SpeedyEric
Guest

I remember they gave the same award to the Scooby Doo movie. I’ll stick with the Best Burp award, thank you very much. Cameron Diaz won the very first award.

MountCDOSgamer
Guest

There’s an award for fart jokes? That’s only going to encourage them! This is why we can’t have nice things!

lilith_ascennding

Damn, that Kangaroo Rap is still stuck in my head all these years later. Literally the rap and the scene where the pilot is shot by the tranquilizer are the only things about this film that I can remember from when I went to go see it in theaters on either Mother’s Day or Father’s Day (I can remember my grandmother’s muffler falling off her car on the way to the theater in more vivid detail than the film, so that kind of speaks even more to the quality of Kangaroo Jack). Also, now I really want the Critic to… Read more »

Maybe if you float some money his way, like donate to one of the charities he advertises, he might consider it; most content creators don’t take fan requests for free.

There’s also the possibility that Doug hasn’t actually seen Samurai Jack; he’s been asked to review the likes of the Cartoon-Cartoons and Toonami shows numerous times, but he always politely declines due to his having never really watched those shows. It may be the same deal with Jack.

Mides
Guest

Well, he never watched Avatar: The Last Airbender before his stint as the NC, but he ended up eventually watching and loving the series. So who knows?

slashmaster28
Guest

Yeah, I do remember him saying at one point that he never saw it. That’s kinda why I at least want him to start doing Vlogs on it.

ThatRandomGuest
Guest

The rap isn’t even theirs. It was the song Rapper’s Delight by the Sugarhill Gang.

The Real Silverstar
Guest

In “G’Day, USA!”, he does a rendition of “Mama Said Knock You Out!” by LL Cool J.

ThatLurkerGuy
Guest

I think the “brave” joke was intended to imply that “you’d have to be brave to be a straight hairdresser”. Har-dee-har.

SpeedyEric
Guest
I thankfully never saw Kangaroo Jack, but I sure as shit remembered it being advertised everywhere. Also, Nice job with the SAMURAI Jack bit in the opening. I’m innocent enough to say that I have seen Snow Dogs in theaters, but I thankfully forgotten what it was about immediately after seeing it. Why couldn’t I forgotten about Skyline instead? In speaking of Christopher Walken, when are you FINALLY gonna get to do a proper review on The Country Bears? I guess the editing in this film is what inspired the editing for Ang Lee’s Hulk. I am actually yearning for… Read more »

“In speaking of Christopher Walken, when are you FINALLY gonna get to do a proper review on The Country Bears?”

Does he have to? Erod and Some Jerk with a Camera have each already reviewed that. Just watch one of their videos if you want to see a full-blown review.

“In speaking of”??

RayO_ElGatubelo
Guest

Not to mention… he’s probably taken a look at that for Disneycember at some point.

Strangefacts101
Guest

Not gonna lie, that fire ant scene had me falling out of my chair

horse14t
Guest

When I was a kid my daycare rented this movie and made us all watch it…. I was the only kid that didn’t like it….

Mides
Guest

I think showing this movie to impressionable young minds should constitute grounds for a class-action lawsuit. :/

RayO_ElGatubelo
Guest

What are you talking about, Mides? It’s A FAAAAAAAAMILY PICTURE!

TheDuke1609
Guest

he’s either talking about Deadpool, Blade Trinity or X Men Origins: Wolverine

happymel

I loved this movie as a kid. I also loved Snow Dogs. Half of the jokes in this movie I still find funny and the other half I now realize are awful. However, I don’t remember the inappropriate stuff except for the boob touching. Besides that, maybe I just didn’t understand what I was seeing/hearing. Then again, my family had me growing up watching Master of Disguise and half of the other things Doug has reviewed. LOL.

Craig
Guest

I rented this movie after it had came out on dvd it had been erased from my memory til now

Honore de Ballsack
Guest

it’s just plain embarrassing that two talented actors like Christopher Walken and Michael Shannon are wasting their time and energy in this crap. I hope they at least got a lot of money out of it.

Fyrmer
Guest

I honestly loved this movie. Sure, it’s flawed but I really enjoyed it anyway.
I always found it a bit odd when people called it a kid’s movie, though. It seemed much more like an admittedly absurd comedy aimed at an older audience with a bit of childish CGI Kangaroo humour thrown in after the fact. Which is pretty much exactly what it was, apparently.

Chicken Puppet
Guest

Crap like this, Shrek, Jackass, and the Star Wars Prequels will forever be burned into my mind as the early 2000’s post-millennium bottoming out of the culture.

Yes, there’s bad stuff in every era, and yes…it started to go downhill in the late 90’s…but there’s something about the crass, pandering, unsubtle nature, endless pop-culture references, and product placement heavy films of this era that make the cheese of previous eras feel innocent and almost quaint.
