The "furry" tag would throw this into a new light.

I vaguely remember hearing about a movie like this, the idea of a boxing kangaroo. A good B-movie, I'd watch this, and it does have that Furry touch when Rodney Dangerfield comes on and talks about man dominating the animal kingdom.
I've seen Mara Wilson's Matilda too, the girl at the orphanage. I had heard about her A Simple Wish movie with Boots, the Dog who is transformed into a Human, so when Matilda came on I watched that.
Buff kangaroo terrorizes Australian neighborhood.
Matilda (the books) were up there with Ramona for me as my favorite literature when I was a kid.. never saw the movie and didn't want to, but I clicked on this not expecting this at all but rather a different Matilda adaptation. Now I have to watch this movie.
Hey Boomer, are you going to Anthrocon this year? Do you know what the deal is with tickets; is that one of those things where you've got to sign up ahead of time, or can you just show up and pay at the door?

IZzy, I never knew that there were Matilda books, but I should have known it must have been adapted from something. I remember seeing the ad for it for the theatrical release in the newspaper, didn't pay as much attention, then when A Simple Wish came out (with Mara Wilson) and there was a Dog transformation, I was interested in that, around 1997 I think. I guess because of A Simple Wish, Matilda was run on TV and I saw it there.
Hi e-Homie, oh I'll probably go down to see friends there as usual, it's a place to meet some of those I bark to on line, and that's important. I think anyone walking in can get membership, it just costs a little less if you pre-register. That's usually the way it goes, but you can check at anthrocon.org, that should say.

I have seen a lot of weird movies but this, which I've never heard of til now, has made its way into the top tiers as one of the weirdest things I think I've seen. The fact that someone conceived this movie is weird, but the fact that its Death Bed-esque rise to the silver screen is jaw dropping. Even Kangaroo Jack was less ill-conceived and that movie was the bottom of the barrel.
Also, the soaring inspirational music in the beginning scene was really hilarious.

"Death Bed-esque level of surrealism made its rise all the way to the silver screen" This movie is so horrible it killed my grammar.
2:35 is where this delves into student horror film territory.
