After running afoul of a New York mobster, life-long buddies Charlie Carbone (Jerry O'Connell) and Louis Fucci (Anthony Anderson) are ordered to deliver a $50,000 payoff to Australia. While driving through the Outback, our heroes come upon a kangaroo and decide to take some pictures with it - but when Louis puts his 'lucky jacket' on the kangaroo and it bounces off, they quickly realize that the jacket contained the money.
Fortunately, Charlie and Louis hook up with Jessie (Estella Warren), a beautiful wildlife expert, who agrees to help them find the kangaroo. Meanwhile, the kangaroo hip-hops cross-country, gaining a rep with his fellow 'roos' thanks to his spiffy new jacket and the tasty candy inside it. With no time to lose Charlie, Louis and Jessie set off after the elusive kangaroo, unaware that the mobsters have gotten wind of all this and are closing in on them, further complicating their madcap pursuit...
