Critics Say 'Kangaroo Jack' Is No Kids' Movie

Ads for the movie Kangaroo Jack blanket breaks in children's television shows, and the movie was number one at the box office its first week. Parents who take their kids to the movie are surprised at some of the language and violent scenes, and some critics call it "profoundly unsuitable" for kids. NPR's Lynn Neary talks with Patrick Goldstein, Los Angeles Times columnist.
