Kangaroo Jack: Two childhood friends, a New York hairstylist and a would-be musician, get caught up with the mob and are forced to deliver $100,000 to Australia, but things go haywire when the money is lost to a wild kangaroo.

This sounds like it will be the greatest cinematic achievement of our time. I saw a preview for it this weekend and I'm still recovering.

Not to be confused with Matilda: A small-time talent agent [Elliott Gould] discovers an amazing boxing kangaroo and figures to use it as his stepping-stone into the big time.

When will people learn? Kangaroos are not your friends. They will not help you to hit the big time. They're evil. And they inspire crappy movies.

And to think I spent all that time trying to help the mother kangaroo save her baby from that vicious gang of monkeys in the early 80s. It doesn't bear thinking about.
