Kangaroo Jack

As the title suggests, the adventurous kangaroo christened Jackie Legs by his human friends has left his Outback habitat for the United States, although not voluntarily. The humans have cleaned up their act in this animated sequel to the 2003 live-action movie. Gone are the violence and all but a smidgen of potty humor, as once again Louis puts his beloved Brooklyn jacket on the runaway Jackie. But this time the clothed marsupial is bouncing through the streets of Vegas, thanks to the smuggling plot of a smarmy animal-act proprietor. (Think a criminally minded Crocodile Hunter with a Siegfried and Roy-like show.) Louis is joined by pal Charlie and his sister Jessie in a Scooby-Doo-style effort to figure out the real crime (the smuggling of ancient Aboriginal jewels), track down Jackie, and return him to his family. Along the way there's some kickboxing, a rap number, and plenty of slapstick humor. (Ages 5 to 11) --Kimberly Heinrichs

[In a dream Charlie is having]

Charlie:
[sees Kangaroo Jack] It's you.

Kangaroo Jack:
Yeah, it's me. Love the jacket Charlie. It's hard enough to fit my shoulders. Nice! How did you know red was my favorite color?

Charlie:
You can talk!

Kangaroo Jack:
And I can sing. [singing from "Rapper's Delight] I said a hip hop/Hippie to the hippie/The hip, hip a hop, and you don't stop, a rock it/To the bang bang boogie, say, up jump the boogie/To the rhythm of the boogie, the beat.

Charlie:
This is great!

Kangaroo Jack:
... see I am Jackie Legs and I like to say, "Hello" / To the black to the white...

Charlie:
Jackie? Mr. Legs, if you would find your way clear to give me back my money?

Kangaroo Jack:
Money? Oh, you mean that money...

[A pack of kangaroo are messing around with the money]

Charlie:
Stop that. Stop that! Hey! Stop that, please! If Sal finds out...

Sal Maggio:
(as a kangaroo) If I find out what, Charlie? That you lost my money?

Charlie:
Sal?

Sal Maggio:
I ask you to do something for me! This is not that!

Charlie:
It wasn't my fault, it was Louis!

Louis:
(as a kangaroo) Say what? My fault?! That's how you pay me back after I saved your life?!

Charlie:
Louis?

Louis:
Next time you drownin' in the ocean... CALL FREE WILLY! Let Willy set you free! You know what, Sal? You were right about him. Chicken blood!

Sal Maggio:
Smell it on his father. Smell it on him. Chicken blood.

Kangaroo Jack:
Oy! Chicken blood!

Kangaroo Jack, Louis, and Sal Maggio:
[chanting] Chicken blood! Chicken blood! Chicken blood!
