Product Description

Product Description

Mick 'Crocodile' Dundee (Paul Hogan) is an Australian bushman assigned to take care of a beautiful New York journalist (Linda Kozlowski) on assignment in the Outback. Attraction quickly flares between them and when Mick saves the young woman from the jaws of a marauding croc, she asks him back to the States where he is an instant hit with jaded New York society. Mick soon learns that bush tactics also work in the urban jungle.

Crocodile Dundee

This 1986 comedy out of Australia is so old-fashioned in its romantic charm that one can't help but wonder what it would have looked like with Clark Gable and Carole Lombard in the leads. On the other hand, it's hard to imagine anyone besides Paul Hogan as the title character, a laid-back Aussie tracker who shows an American reporter (Linda Kozlowski) around bush country, then accompanies her to New York City. Sure, Hollywood has done the fish-out-of-water scenario to death in the last 20 years, and while this film has sufficient sport with the gimmick, it is largely driven by the principal characters and their developing love affair. Hogan cowrote the script and director Peter Faiman evokes the goofy, enchanted air of screwball comedies. The climactic scene, set in a subway station with scores of bystanders witnessing a conversation about relationship commitment, feels like vintage Capra.--Tom Keogh --This text refers to the DVD edition.

This film is not considered 'cool' these days due mainly, I think, to lazy TV schedulers who will run a butchered version of the film on Sunday afternoons because it's a 'good family film', rather than showing the unedited version at a sensible time in the evening. I've caught this film on TV about four times and on each occasion it was in a poorly cut version. This DVD seems, so far as I can tell, to be complete.
The film deserves to be put alongside the best comedies of any era and should be regarded as one of the prime examples of the form.

I was lucky enough to see this film at the cinema, knowing no more about it at the time, than that it was supposed to be a good comedy. Well it turned out to be a very good comedy indeed. The film offers so much more than just some very funny moments though. Everyone I know who saw it at the time loved it and it was no surprise that it became one of the years biggest hits. It is strong in all areas, well written and directed with good chemistry between the leading actors and an excellent cast who all perform their parts to perfection. Hogan stands out of course and had the difficult task of throwing off the tag 'Australia's answer to Benny Hill' something he manages effortlessly.

It's difficult to realise now how much of a 'breath of fresh air' it was at the time, since Hollywood immediately co-opted (or stole) so much of the style and approach of the film for its own projects in the following years.

The film quite naturally, divides into two parts. The first in Australia, has a surprising depth to it and a real feel for the place(the Outback)and its people and of course you get to know the characters.

Format: DVD
New York reporter Sue Charlton hears of a guy in the outback of Australia who survived an attack by a crocodile. For research she meets up with "Crocodile Mick Dundee" and spends time with him out in the dangerous Bush Country. Finding a rapport during their time together, Sue convinces Mick to go back with her to New York, which brings interesting results as Mick becomes a big hit by treating the Big Apple, and all that comes his way, the same as he would the Outback.

Crocodile Dundee has a standard fish out of water comedy premise, yet with a number of truly funny sequences and an appealing turn from Paul Hogan as Dundee; it became a monster smash hit that the cinema watching public lapped up with glee. In a decade that is often considered to be the worst for film, it may just be that cinema goers were desperate for a pick me up movie? Something that Crocodile Dundee most assuredly is. But to give that credence would, I feel, be doing it a disservice, for in spite of the rickety concept and the obviousness of where we will ultimately end up, it has bundles of earthy charm, a charm that many can identify with.

As Dundee goes about his way, meeting pimps, transsexuals and muggers et al, they are not only very funny scenes, they are also points of reference to the ever changing way of the Continents. The film does come dangerously close to falling into a sugary rom-com mire, but with a strong performance from Linda Kozlowski as Sue, and Hogan introducing an icon to 80s cinema, Crocodile Dundee safely hits the target that it was surely aiming for. Besides, the love story here is very easy to get on side with.

Format: VHS Tape
One of the classic comedies of all time. Aussie star Paul Hogan creates the character of Crocodile Dundee, the man from the outback who thinks and acts like the Aborigines and ends up in New York. From trying to say Howdy to everyone on Fifth Avenue, just as he would back home, to taking on the natives who try mugging him (..the classic line "now THAT'S what I call a knife")Dundee makes friends and enemies all the time whilst treating the city like his own backyard. Linda Koslowski (later to become Mrs. Hogan) was stunning in her role as a reporter bringing back the Crocodile man for an exclusive interview after he saved her life in the outback. The music by Peter Best is amongst my favourite ever soundtracks (Crocodile Dundee II is even better, although Film 3 failed to live up to the two others which are both classic comedies in every sense with decent storylines thrown in for good measure.) Pride of place in my collection with Peter Sellers' Pink Panther, Mel Brooks' Blazing Saddles, etc.

An absolute classic film of the '80s and oneof the best Australia produced.
The original is the best film of the bunch and is full of funny moments, some you won't get to see on TV (especially when its edited for swearing).

I love this film!

This is a hilarious film and Paul Hogan is magic in the title role. Although it stereotypes and pokes fun at the Aussie bushman, it is done with respect and no offence could possibly be taken.
