Accustomed to a simple life in the Australian Outback, a legendary crocodile hunter has trouble adjusting to his new surroundings when an American journalist brings him to New York City. This Australian comedy delivers exactly what one would expect: plenty of fish-out-of-water gags about the hunter's reactions to the absurdity of modern urban life.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The rousing climax, a variation on the old airport confession of love, sends the picture--and us--out on a high note with an affirmation of the essential New York character."
‑ Bill Chambers, Film Freak Central
"Have a very "g'day" watching this one."
‑ Luke Y. Thompson, New Times
"Enjoyable little film, but nothing exciting."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"The definition of a cheesy 1980s movie. Charming, though."
‑ Phil Villarreal, Arizona Daily Star
"Hogan's natural charisma makes the original Dundee so appealing"
‑ Christopher Null,
"It's an unhurried film, content simply to let its lovable hero loose in New York, then watch the genial hijinks as he tries to acclimate himself to a pre-Giuliani Big Apple."
‑ Nathan Rabin, The Dissolve
"Funny comedy. All the fish out of water cliches, but it works."
‑ Fred Topel,
"Mildly entertaining family film."
‑ Alex Sandell, Juicy Cerebellum
"This idiosyncratic movie succeeds as a delightful comedy, a sexy romance, and a clever cross-cultural study."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"Formulaic but enjoyable Aussie comedy about culture collision, in large part due to star-writer Paul Hogan."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Sure, looking back now it seems cheeseball, but it was the 80s. We didn't know any better."
‑ Widgett Walls,
"Without a doubt, a product of the 80s... but Hogan's charming outback fairy tale still elicits a grin."
‑ Rob Vaux, Flipside Movie Emporium
"While it's certainly a good-natured and attractive-looking movie, you'd have a hard time finding another movie in which so little actually happens."
‑ Scott Weinberg, Apollo Guide
