I remember every trailer and TV spot for this "film" used this 1 minute scene from the movie so extensively that it convinced nearly every child and unfortunate parent that I knew who saw it in theaters that the entire narrative was about a magical kangaroo that talked, danced and sung, cracking wise and eluding the pursuit of two bumbling ninnies who's entire existence was wrapped up in being the dunderheads who are foiled by Jackie Legs the Hip Hoperoo who just wants to party and talk to kids about fun.
God Help us all. 5 stars.
I can easily see a studio exec adding this scene to the script in crayon, then adding a sticky note reading "WE NEED SOMETHING 'HIP' FOR THE ADS."
I can't rate it, but I propose 5 stars for Gollum totally blowing Kangaroo Jack (and Yoda) out of the water for a Best Animated Actor award.
Seriously, Australia should be allowed to kill a few Americans for this horror.
HURF BLURF DUH
You're absolutely right, Aaron. One of the more egregiously deceptive marketing schemes for a movie in my memory. And then they went ahead and repeated it for this movie's recent showing on Cartoon Network, the commercial played for about three weeks beforehand and featured 95% animated Kangaroo Jack (spoiler: the above clip repesents the entire length of his appearance in the film) and 5% stupid wisecracking thugs. And 0% hot babe, who if I'm not mistaken gets naked in the film (though nothing shows).
it was all just a dream.

This is one of many reasons why the terrorists hate us.

"you should have stayed on Sliders Jerry" really should be a tag.
Maybe we should commence "Jerry O'Connell's career week"
Sliders was a fun show for the first season or so, until John Ryes-Davis left. But even at its worst it was high art compared to this.

I thought it said Kangaroo Jack Rapes...
Yet the clip was equally as horrible as I imagined.

"This is great!!"
NO, IT ISN'T.

Why aren't Chevy Chase and Jon Voight involved on this?!?! Somebody messed up.

Jerry O'Connell's career certainly has been meteoric.

"Chicken Blood" is PG for "Chicken Shit," right?

Holy fuck, I hated this movie. I had to sit through it for a Journalism class in high school and I remember getting so fucking angry at this movie. Especially this part.
Sadly, there was no cool frog/dolphin around.
YO, QUIT GETTIN' MAD AT MOVIES.
....NAW, ON SECOND THOUGHT, YOU CAN GET MAD AT *THIS* MOVIE.
