Movie: Kangaroo Jack
Tagline: “He stole the money … and he’s not giving it back”
Stolen money is rarely “given back,” so the fact that Kangaroo Jack (a kangaroo, not a person with Hollywood’s idea of an Aussie nickname) is not giving it back is a weak peg on which to hang even as threadbare a film as this. But the real issue with the tagline is that it features what is perhaps the most pointless deployment of an ellipsis … ever. It just … rankles. It really … does.
