Mick's Back To Save Hollywood
on 29 December 2008
I have to say I really enjoyed the first two, Mick going to New York and discovering a whole new world, then Sue going to the outback to find out how Australia was was just as comical, so I was wondering why they had decided to come back with yet another one? I was put off by bad reviews and people saying it was dull, but yesterday I ignored all the fuss and gave Mick and co my 90 minutes of attention.
Sue's father needs Sue to come back to the US to do some journalism work as one of their colleagues has died. Mick's adamant that she should go, and him and Mick Jr will follow later on. Sue has to investigate a new studio in tinsel town, one that seems to be rather reluctant to have visitors in certain studios.
Mick's back to his old tricks, and brings Mick Jr over to LA, to find he's learning more things yet again, and taking TV a little too serious. When Sue discovers something fishy, Mick Dundee's on the hunt for the truth.
This wasn't as bad as people made out - I quite enjoyed it, Paul Hogan's performance is just as good as 1 and 2, and young Mick is funny. OK the plot is a bit cheesy, but this is good for a Sunday evening's watching, not too serious yet not so stupid you might as well turn off your brain. The action is not as good as the first one, but this isn't the worst long awaited sequel ever, actually it does a pretty good job. It obviously isn't as good as the first movie, but that would not be easy to do.
I like the way they have kept up the cluelessness of the first movie even though he's still in the US, it's just different in LA to New York. It's funny how he's not really kept up with the new trends, and him mocking the other guy with a mobile phone was funny.
I would recommend renting this, but if you're a big fan of the crock, then you should get this as it's decently priced.
