Scott Hardie: “It was ok.”
Those (like me) in search of a truly terrible film may pass this one up. Sure, its entire plot is a series of contrived mistakes made by its idiotic protagonists. Sure, it has gaping plot holes even within its own illogical framework. Sure, it substitutes CGI in lieu of Australia’s actual beauty. And yes, they did add more scenes with the talking kangaroo, in an apparent attempt to improve it. But, it does have one wonderful asset: Anthony Anderson. If any man can take a farting camel joke (something that tarnished even Star Wars) and make it work, it’s him.
