In this, the third installment of the successful CROCODILE
DUNDEE series, we are reintroduced to Mick "Crocodile"
Dundee (Hogan) and his love interest Sue Charleton (real-life
wife Kozlowski). Several years have passed since we last
saw them; they now have a 9-year-old son Mikey (newcomer
Cockburn) and live in domestic bliss in tiny Walkabout
Creek, Australia. However, Mick is starting to feel the
strain of hunting crocodiles. When her old newspaper offers
Sue a temporary job in their Los Angeles bureau, Mick
encourages her to take it so the whole family can get
away for a while and their son can see something of the
world outside of Walkabout Creek. Once in L.A., Sue takes
over an investigation into a shady movie production company,
and Mick jumps at the chance to play sleuth and use the
investigative skills he has gleaned from watching television.
CROCODILE DUNDEE IN L.A. is a fun and entertaining movie
that takes full advantage of the character that Paul Hogan
created, with plenty of fish-out-of-water jokes and gentle
jabs at the strange and wonderful world that is L.A. The
crime investigation is but an excuse to get our hero into
Hollywood parties and onto the backlots of Paramount Pictures
so we can poke fun at the movie business as well.
This is also a good movie for parents and kids to see
together-one of the reasons the character of Crocodile
Dundee seems so out of place in the modern world is because
he displays such "unmodern" values such as helping
others and doting on his family. And not to worry, the
action scenes are far tamer than anything you would see
on the television show "The Crocodile Hunter."
So take the whole family and have a g'time.
Take a pal and pay full price for both tickets.
Itís worth a full-price ticket.
Itís worth a matinee ticket.
Wait for video rental.
Check out the video from the library, if you must.
While we would never encourage anyone to destroy a video...
