      Audience Member Family friendly Australian movie about a boy and a girl trying to reunite a kangaroo joey named you guessed it Joey with its kidnapped parents and break up a illegal kangaroo fighting ring. A great family film that is fun and worth a look. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review don s This movie is bad. The plot is tired. The acting was atrocious. I realize it is a low budget foreign made film, but it should have at least one redeeming quality, right? Not that I could find. The characters were mostly stiff and unlikable. The bad guys were laughable. Even the cute title character couldn't save this stinker. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member it is nice i have the movie Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member This is a real touching movie Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member I saw this film with my 6 & 4 yr old. It could not hold their attention. It has a good message but it does not make the kids care about the roos. In the beginning my daughter was very worried about the roos. But quickly forgot about them as the movie progressed. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Audience Member This Australian family film is cute, but also very predictable. It will entertain the young ones, but most adults will probably be a bit bored. The plot is very familiar. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Read all reviews
