Kangaroo Jack

Revealing mistake: Any time that Charlie is kicked by the kangaroo, they show him falling back onto the ground. But, if you look closely, they just used the same shot over and over. The exact same two lines in the dirt are to his left by his head each time.

Revealing mistake: In the last scene, when Louis jumps into the hot tub, he jumps from about 12-15 feet back. Besides the fact that no one of his size should be able to jump that far, he falls into the water nearly vertically. Jumping from that far away should make him fall in at a sharp angle.

Revealing mistake: There is a scene where the main characters are chasing the kangaroo through the outback. In one close-up shot where their vehicle becomes airborne, you can see that the wheels are not spinning.

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.



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.
