Crocodile Dundee Storylin

Crocodile Dundee

Intrigued by the near-death experience of the rugged hunter, Michael J. “Crocodile” Dundee, after a close encounter with a monstrous saltwater crocodile, the New York City reporter, Sue Charlton, travels to Australia, to meet the legend in person. There, in the dusty hamlet of Walkabout Creek and the formidable outback, dangerous situations and unforeseen romantic complications await; however, Sue already knows that nothing compares to the urban jungle of the great Big Apple. So, like a fish out of water, Mick leaves Australia for the first time in his life for Manhattan’s concrete maze, where he comes face-to-face with the complexities of modern life. But, will the unpretentious bushman ever adapt to the big city?

Fun iconic cheesy character of the 80s

Crocodile Dundee, Sue Charlton (Linda Kozlowski) is a Newsday writer who was due back already but she hears a story about Michael J. “Crocodile” Dundee (Paul Hogan) who survived a crocodile attack in the Australian outback. He’s a guide with his best friend Walter Reilly (John Meillon) based out of Walkabout Creek. He takes her out to the outback encountering aboriginal friend Neville Bell (David Gulpilil). She falls for Dundee and takes him back to NYC. Her overbearing boss Richard Mason (Mark Blum) is her boyfriend back home.

I love the sly humor taking shots at some of stereotypes. Of course, it created one of the most iconic stereotypical character of the 80s. Some of humor is still there but much of it is dated. It’s still a charmer and a fun movie. I do wish they limit some of the modern world jokes. They don’t all work if they keep doing them. It’s a case of less is more.

Still fresh

Crocodile Dundee,

Mick Dundee is a man’s man who has lived all his life next to nature in a remote backwater in Australia. A New York journalist finds him intriguing while writing pieces about him and, after some experiences of life in the outback, prevails upon him to travel back to the USA with her.

This film breaks into two parts: the Australian bit, where we learn that Mick Dundee is a man of integrity, full of knowledge and ability, and then the New York but where he is a fish out of water. The joke is that even when he is being a fish out of water, his native decency and sheer can-do-it-ness makes him more than a match for the low-lifes, idiots, and ignorant fools he encounters.

Paul Hogan, playing a character he both devised and wrote, conveys Mick as the sort of bloke you would like to share a pint with and have by your side in a crisis. Linda Kozlowski, as the American journalist, has both good chemistry with Hogan (who she subsequently married) and nice buttocks.

This romantic comedy was pleasing when it first came out, and remains fresh today. Crocodile Dundee
