'Crocodile Dundee' is a highly entertaining comedy romance
released in '86 that implanted such delightful Aussie terms
as; "G'day" and "out for a walkabout" into Amercian
Paul Hogan is absolutely perfect as the man from down under,
Michael J. 'Crocodile' Dundee who is pursued by an American
reporter (Linda Kozlowski) in search of a good newspaper
story about the elusive crocodile hunter roaming the
Australian Outback. When their brief but intense encounter
blossoms into romance she invites Mic to return to New York
with her and see the sights. Can a naive Aussie fresh from
the bush cope with the perils that accompany life in the Big
Apple? You Bet!!
Great family fun with good performances by Hogan and
Kozlowski as well as John Meillon as Mic's Outback partner,
Walter and a brief but memorable cameo by David Gulpilil.
This movie is very charming in its simplicity. It
isn't full of confusing and complicated twists and turns at
every angle, doesn't have several different subplots to keep
up with and isn't full of murky characters that really have
no purpose other than to take up a frame. It is a simple
romantic comedy that is very much worth the time spent
