Did You Know?


Matilda (1978) was an earlier American movie about an Australian boxing kangaroo and was made about twenty five years before the US-Australian co-production Kangaroo Jack (2003) which was also about an Australian boxing kangaroo. As such, Kangaroo Jack (2003) premiered in the 25th Anniversary year of Matilda (1978).


Charlie Carbone: Louis, what are you eating?
Louis Booker: I picked a bunch of berries when we were at camp, man. Jessie said they were cool. They smell like a bowl of Fruity Pebbles right before you add the milk. Go on. Take a whiff.

Alternate Versions

When aired on Nickelodeon, the part where Charlie putting his hand on Jessie's breast during his mirage daze was cut out. So instead, it showed Charlie about to reach out before being hit in the head with the water canister by Jessie. Also, the part where Blue says "Never should have left the pub!" was edited out.
