Crocodile Dundee II Review


Weak
As charismatic as ol' Mick Dundee was in the original Crocodile Dundee, the opposite is on display in this sequel, produced two years later. By 1988, an overexposed Paul Hogan had turned Dundee into a harsh meanie -- fishing off the coast of New York with dynamite and willing to dangle a man over the side of a building to get information out of him.

And rather than a lovey-dovey romantic comedy, Crocodile Dundee II (made, you know, back when we used Roman numerals to indicate the number of a sequel) is an action-packed movie more fit for Schwarzenegger, an attempt to clone Romancing the Stone with a less attractive blonde and a lead with an accent. This time out, our reporter Sue gets in trouble with a group of gangsters, and Mick has to save her ass -- by dragging it back to Australia, where he picks off the villains one by one by using his nutty faux-Aboriginal mojo.

Village Of The Damned (1995) Review


Terrible
Telepathic children took over the mind of John Carpenter, forcing him to make this remake, which is generously referred to as "a load of crap." Horribly, horribly bad. Avoid.

Crocodile Dundee Review


Very Good
In case, dear reader, you are too young to remember the 1980s, you missed the craze over Australia. Men at Work inexplicably became a big band. An Aussie guy named "Jocko" pitched Energizer batteries with the catchphrase "Oy!" The Outback Steakhouse rose to national prominence.

And it was all started by a man named Paul Hogan, who invented a character named Crocodile Dundee, a rough-and-tumble adventurer discovered by a nubile reporter named Sue (Linda Kozlowski, a blonde whose career has essentially ended at Dundee and its two sequels (and here)) when she's digging up a story down under.

Crocodile Dundee In Los Angeles Review


Weak
It's hard to watch your favorite childhood movie characters grow up and try to capitalize on the same, tired dog and pony show. Alas, Hollywood has turned the recycler on full steam, sending Aussie icon Paul Hogan back into celluloid with an empty third installment of the "Crocodile" Dundee saga: Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles.

Not much has come from Hogan since his days as Mick "Crocodile" Dundee. He has written and starred in many forgettable films over the past decade -- stuff like Almost an Angel, Lighting Jack, and Flipper -- and has even converted his Crocodile Dundee role into a spokesman for the Subaru Outback. Did anyone want or need another fish-out-of-water story about a hillbilly croc hunter trying to adapt to Big City life? With the keys to his Outback in hand, Hogan is back in the trademark hat, dishing out another tale of the simple Australian man mingling with that kooky, extravagant, and pompous American culture.

Crocodile Dundee In L.A. Review


Zero

Somebody at Paramount Pictures must have owed Paul Hogan a humongous favor to green-light "Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles." Before even seeing the movie, I could have told you it's 15 years too late for another sequel in this series.

But that's the least of the problems with this lifeless, asinine, staggeringly inept mess of haggard franchise gags, out-of-date pop culture japes and Hollywood backlot antics that are less realistic than the tour at Universal Studios.

The obscenely contrived plot follows Mick Dundee, girlfriend Sue Charlton (Linda Kozlowski) and their son Mikey (Serge Cockburn) to L.A. as Sue takes over the local newsroom of her dad's newspaper chain. The previous bureau chief died suspiciously while poking around the finances of a B-grade studio that cranks out money-losing action flicks for Eastern Europe. Could all these mean-looking toughs in ponytails and shark skin suits be -- oh, I don't know -- crooked?
