He's survived the most hostile and primitive land known to man. Now all he's got to do is make it through a week in New York.

Michael J. "Crocodile" Dundee is a free-spirited Australian who hunts crocodiles with his bare hands, stares down giant water buffaloes, and drinks mre mortals under the table. But he's about to face the ultimate torture test - a trip to New York City. Beautiful and tenacious reporter Sue Charlton gets more than just a story as the "wonder from Down Under" rocks the Big Apple to its core.

I saw this at the movies back in the 80's when it had just come out. There were queues around the block and everyone said it was funny but I felt let-down. It was full of cliches about the city slicker going to the country and the country yokel going to the big city. There are only two funny parts: when Dundee walks across the top of the subway crowd; and "call that a knife...?". This movie continues the false stereotype of the Australian male: one-dimensional (like this film).

This was an excellent movie, when it was shown at the movie theater, however this DVD version that Big pond movies has been so severely chopped, it barely makes in interesting to watch, so many portions were deliberately cut out, it simply beggars belief. There is no logical reason why anyone would deliberately go out of their way to destroy such a fun movie as Crocodile Dundee 1. We have such good compression techniques these days, what with the almost all of Avatar fitting on a DVD, and to blatantly cut the Croc Dundee 1 movie down in size is very much a no-brainer. Shame on the actual DVD editors (not the Actors, nor the cast and crew and not the producers and certainly not the directors who made this original Aussie movie so much fun and magic .) Very disappointing DVD version of a such a great Australian movie. Question: Was jealousy used to cut it to make it just watchable, Shame on you for doing this.

I saw it on TV last night. The part I laughed out loud was when he is in the subway and decides to walk on everyone's head to get to the girl Sue(who is Linda, his wife in real life). Its been a long time since I saw it last (24 years). They both look really good back then. I guess everyone did! Anyway, its worth getting for nostalgia sake. Especially for those under 20 years that are looking for the 1980s fashion look.

I have lived in the outback, and I have met many similar characters. For oversees readers: NOT all Australia and it's inhabitants are like that! The trick with the hand and the buffalo is NOT true! However, the Australian bush, the 'Barra hunting' etc is all real.I dont know if the Americans in NY behave like this though.... Paul Hogan's best and most natural movie. The love story interwoven made it watchable by both sexes. The humour is Australian (bush) humour and for us very funny. A humourous look at the australian psyche. In short worth watching over and over again!

A classic flick, surely anyone who rents this has already seen it and wants to watch it for a bit of nolstagia. Mick Dundee is really the character I think of when I think of Paul Hogan. Too bad they haven't done a special edition with improved video/sound, a film like this deserves it more than many they fix up.

While it's certainly a good-natured and attractive-looking movie, you'd have a hard time finding another movie in which so little actually happens.
