There's no drama in " 'Crocodile' Dundee" because there's no real conflict between these characters.

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.

Funny comedy. All the fish out of water cliches, but it works.

Family Home Theater

The second half of the film it's especially fun watching this Australian roughneck deal with local customs, traffic jams, subways, streetlights, and a rival for Sue's attention-her boss.

Emanuel Levy

Formulaic but enjoyable Aussie comedy about culture collision, in large part due to star-writer Paul Hogan.

Sure, looking back now it seems cheeseball, but it was the 80s. We didn't know any better.

Bill Chambers
Film Freak Central

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.

Crocodile Dundee is a good little comedy film starring Paul Hogan. The film is pretty funny, and has a good cast starring alongside Hogan. The jokes are funny… More

This isn't the most original concept on the world, but the specific story is lots of fun, and Paul Hogan is just a hoot to watch, This is smart, funny,… More
