Crocodile Dundee (1986)

This popular comedy finally earned a viewing, and I was not disappointed with this charming film that was one of the biggest romantic-comedies of the 1980s.

The story is simple yet enjoyable – American reporter Sue Charlton (Linda Kozlowski) meets the eccentric crocodile hunter Michael J. ‘Crocodile’ Dundee (Paul Hogan) in the Australian outback and invites him back to New York City – a classic tale of a ‘fish out of water’ and love is also on the menu in the Big Apple.

Most importantly, Crocodile Dundee is funny, warm and effortlessly charming as comedies should be. Hogan’s mysterious and optimistic character provides plenty of laughs with his simple ways in the concrete jungle, far away from the wild bush Down Under.

It is a basic film, from the plot to the characters, and rather predictable too, but there is enough sweetness and charm – plus plenty of laughs – to leave you with a smile at the end.

7/10
