�Kangaroo Jack� is considered to be an action, adventure and comedy film, that skilled director David McNally and powerful writer Steve Bing introduce with great excitement.

It is a comedy that follows the misadventures of two best friends Charlie Carbone (Jerry O' Connell), a hair stylist in New York and Louis Booker (Anthony Anderson), a down-on-the-luck musician, who both are involved with the local mob family led by Salvatore 'Sal' Maggio (Christopher Walken).

After their first job attempt at delivering stolen televisions to a local warehouse was a failure, Sal, completely upset, gives Charlie and Louis one more chance at redemption. His younger employee, Frankie Lombardo, gives the guys the most important assignment, which is to fly to Australia and deliver the mob's $50,000 to a Mr. Smith in the exact time. And so begins a cross-content trek of mishaps.

While taking pictures of a kangaroo, one of them places his red jacket on it. When the wild kangaroo bounces off, they realize the mob money is in the jacket. They team up with a wildlife expert named Jessie (Estella Warren) to chase down the kangaroo who has the the $50,000 mob money.

Can Charlie, Louis, and Jessie survive the heat, get the money, and save the day without getting killed by the mob?

The movie co- stars Dyan Cannon as Anna Carbone, Adam Garcia as Kangaroo 'Jackie Legs' Jack (voice, uncredited), Michael Shannon as Frankie Lombardo, Marton Csokas as Mr. Smith, Bill Hunter as Blue, and Tony Nikolakopoulos as Sal's Capo.

The film was released on January 17, 2003, with a run time of 89 minutes. It was followed by �Kangaroo Jack: G'Day U.S.A.!� in 2004.
