‘Crocodile’ Dundee

Crocodile DundeeBBBB

(out of 5)

Beloved comedy that still has the same spark that it had in 1986.   plays a photojournalist who travels to Australia to meet and interview an outbacker () who runs a safari business and has just survived a nasty fight with a crocodile.  Initially surprised by the foreign environment, Kozlowski takes to Hogan’s charms and invites him back to New York City while she finishes her report. His culture shock at meeting up with the Big Apple makes up some of the most enjoyable aspects of this terrific film, which turns into an even more enjoyable romance when the two leads find their chemistry working in their favour. Hogan is marvelous, and the film deservedly found itself a large audience, but the sequels to follow are lamentable.
