Funny movie, 10 or older

I checked the review of the movie and didn’t see any language that concerned me. But be aware, they say a** kicked. Sadly, I was letting my younger kids watch too.

Is It Any Good?

Kids say: Not yet rated

KANGAROO JACK: G'DAY USA! is a very silly movie that, on occasion, veers into obnoxious humor. In other words: This movie is unafraid to use flatulence to garner some laughs. Much of its humor is derived from food fights, one-dimensional portrayals of, say, "surfer dudes," and slapstick-style violence.

None of this is quite enough to carry the movie, but it's enough to keep families entertained, assuming this is their style of humor. Even when showing the plight of exotic animals captured by poachers, this is still, at its core, a cartoon caper. For families, the entertainment value of the film is inevitably dependent on how much they enjoy this kind of thing, and how much silliness they're willing to tolerate.
