Synopsis: Mick 'Crocodile' Dundee, an Australian bushman makes an impression in American culture on his first trip to New York City.


Reaction: A funny movie that takes the familiar fish-out-of-water storyline but tells in such a fun way that the cliché is overlooked.


Personal Rating: 8/10

Random Trivia For This Title:

  • After Mick chases off a group of drunken kangaroo poachers by assuming a kangaroo's carcass and firing a shotgun at them from behind it, he turns to the dead kangaroo and says "Good one, Skippy." This is a reference to the 1960's Australian children's show [Skippy]
  • In one scene Mick is in the bathroom in his hotel room and a film is playing on the TV in the other room. The film is Major Dundee.
  • The "quotes" around "Crocodile" in the title were added for the American release to ensure people didn't think that Dundee was a crocodile.
  • When Paul Hogan gave an interview for Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles, he put to rest the myth that there was a real Crocodile Dundee. He assured the interviewer that there was not, and that the idea for the character came from his own head. Hogan admitted that on a trip to New York he felt like a complete fish-out-of-water and the idea began to form in his head.
