The roo-shooter's camo-painted jeep has its "OEM" headlights go off when the windshield is shattered, yet in the next shots of the truck backing up swiftly, both the headlights and the "add-ons" are all blazing brightly again. See more »
Crocodile Dundee is a great comedy from 1986 which can be enjoyed after repeat viewings. Over the years I've heard a lot of criticism of this film and I cannot understand it. If you don't like this film, then something must be wrong.
It's great to see the tough but naive Crocodile Dundee-played excellently by Paul Hogan-come to New York and after a sequence of events meet up with journalist Sue Charlton played by Linda Koslowski. Koslowski and Hogan made a great team in this film.
Like all comedies I won't spoil the scenes for anyone who hasn't seen the film but there are some great scenes particularly one where two youngsters try to mug Dundee with a knife. You'll laugh at what happens next.
All in all, a great comedy. Ignore any criticism you've heard of this film and enjoy a great film.
