Kangaroo Jack

Factual error: Near the end of the movie, in the scene on the cliff, Charlie, Jessie and Louis are saved from impending murder when Senior Sergeant Jimmy appears, flying up in a helicopter and announcing he is from Australian Police. There is no police department in Australia called "Australian Police" - police departments in Australia are named after the state they are based in. As they are apparently near Alice Springs, Jimmy should have yelled out that he was from "Northern Territory Police."

Factual error: In the scene where Sal is sending Charlie and Louis to Australia, Frankie tells them to take the Old South Road due north from Sydney to Coober Pedy. When they are driving through the outback, they pass a sign which says "Alice Springs 15" and "Coober Pedy 550". This is can only be possible if they are driving south towards Coober Pedy from the northern part of Australia, not from Sydney.

Continuity mistake: During the scene in which Charlie and Louis manage to crash their plane, they hit a chimney and the plane's left wing goes flying on its own. Moments later, however, it has attached itself to the plane again, before in the next shot disappearing again. (00:38:35)

Trivia: Originally, the story was very different. The kangaroo appeared only in one scene, but the crew liked it so much, they changed the whole movie.

Question: Who is the actress playing the flight attendant that listens to the guys in the bathroom with disgust?

Answer: Lara Cox is not the flight attendant. "Cute Girl on Plane" was the 2nd girl to enter the scene and overhear the boys in the bathroom. I was unable to find who played the flight attendant and she may have just been a featured extra. I suspect Lara Cox is a member of S.A.G. and that's how she got a credited role and the other lady is not a member and was just hired as a background actor, which is why she's not credited (most extras are not credited).

Ah, good looking there. ^^ I was going by the best that I could find.

Answer: If I'm able to figure out who the correct person is by the IMDb listings, I think she's credited as Cute Girl On Plane, with the actress playing her being Lara Cox. That's the closest thing I could find in the IMDb listings to a flight attendant, as I don't think customs officer counts.
