Crocodile Dundee (1986) (PG-13)
97 min. – Adventure | Comedy
Accustomed to a simple life in the Australian Outback, a legendary crocodile hunter has trouble adjusting to his new surroundings when an American journalist brings him to New York City. This Australian comedy delivers exactly what one would expect: plenty of fish-out-of-water gags about the hunter's reactions to the absurdity of modern urban life. Though he initially seems rather naive, Paul Hogan's "Crocodile" Dundee soon demonstrates that his natural ways are rather quite well-suited to city life, proving himself equally adept at defeating muggers and charming members of high society. Along the way, as one might expect, a romance develops between the rugged hunter and the hardened journalist, who finds herself enchanted by his down-to-earth behavior. The story is not particularly original, but the film's good-natured humor proved extremely palatable to audiences, as indicated by its worldwide box office success. Author: Judd Blaise
Nominated for 1 Oscar. Another 3 wins & 7 nominations
Crocodile Dundee was the second highest grossing film of 1986. Platoon was the third biggest film of the year, with Top Gun coming in first. It took $177 million in the US alone, and $353 million worldwide.
Paul Hogan really did walk around saying "g'day" to New Yorkers during his first trip to Manhattan.
"'Crocodile Dundee'" was the feature film debut for both Paul Hogan and Linda Kozlowski.
