Crocodile Dundee II

Crocodile Dundee II

Synopsis

Further adventures of Paul Hogan's Mick 'Crocodile' Dundee, this time pursued from New York back to the Australian Outback by vengeful drug dealers.

About

The first sequel to Paul Hogan's smash-hit culture clash comedy sees rugged Aussie Mick Dundee (played by Hogan) return to his roots Down Under. The film starts in New York, where Mick is shacked up with reporter girlfriend Sue (Linda Kozlowski), raising his leathered brow at the crazy fruits of the Big Apple. But after receiving an incriminating roll of film showing a Colombian drug dealer up to no good, Sue is kidnapped. When Mick breaks her out they flee back to Australia, where he's in his element and the pursuing bad guys are way out of their depth.

Screenwriters Hogan and his son Brett obviously rented Romancing The Stone and decided anything good enough for Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner was okay for Hogan and his statuesque (in all senses) girlfriend/co-star. Hogan's undeniably engaging but he only has one look, one way of delivering a line; ideal for a lager commercial, a little tricky for an action hero in a feature film (though admittedly, it never seemed to hinder Schwarzenegger).

In a nutshell

A harmless but uninspired sequel that coasts by on nostalgia for the first film and its star's appeal.
