Crocodile Dundee

Paul Hogan stars as Michael J "Crocodile" Dundee, a rugged man of the Australian Outback, legend to have wrestled crocodiles bringing them to their knees in mercy. Newspaper reporter, Sue Charlton, travels to the Australian Outback to write a human interest story on this very colorful man. Being completely captivated and absorbed by his skills at surviving in the rugged Australian frontier, she brings him to New York; the wilderness of the other extreme. So, this backwoods Aussie is left to wonder the mean streets of the Big Apple, a place that he isn't familiar with nor can be expected to survive in. However, through some strange miracle, everybody loves this guy's na´ve and charming personality. This film made quite a bit of money when it was first released in the movies, launching Paul Hogan to stardom (even though he hasn't had much of a film career as yet). Crocodile Dundee is an entertaining comedy despite the fact that it's missing the "something" that it needs to make it really great. Followed by Crocodile Dundee II.
