| Boring non-sense
By any reasonable standard, "Wallaby Jim of the Islands" is a terrible movie. It's characters are more like characters from a Popeye cartoon than from real life, the film is jam-packed full of awful and weird songs and the plot is about as exciting as staring at a marshmallow for 90 minutes.

The film is set in the South Seas, where Wallaby Jim is a manly man. He meets a woman and it's obvious they're destined for each other. However, in the intervening time, he sings a few bizarre sea shanties, gets betrayed by his supposed friend, is pursued by a simple-minded island girl and must battle some baddie named Richter for rights to a fortune in pearls. None of it is interesting or makes any sense--even for a cheap B-movie. I rarely say this, but I really found nothing that interested me in the least in this insipid film. Just awful is my verdict.
