CROCODILE DUNDEE (1986)
When New York news reporter, Sue, travels to Australia to meet and interview her top story, crocodile hunter Michael J. 'Crocodile' Dundee, she finds herself unexpectedly immersed in the midst of safari madness, including near-death run-ins with crocodiles, poachers, etc. With nothing but her survival skills and a hunky 'Mick' to save her, Sue somehow makes it out alive and invites the 'Crocodile' man back to New York for a little taste of the urban jungle.
Promotional Lines: "There's
a little of him in all of us."
The basic story involves an Australian man of
adventure, Michael Crocodile Dundee (Paul Hogan) who meets a pretty
American reporter, Sue Charlton (Linda Kozlowski), in the Australian
outback, who comes to interview him about how he had survived
a crocodile attack. While taking her on a tour of the outback,
showing her where he was attacked, and what life is like there,
he saves her life, by rescuing her from a hungry crocodile. She
invites him to come with her back to New York. When he travels
with her to New York, humorous complications ensue, romantic and
otherwise, as he encounters a completely different world, full
of things and customs he has never experienced. Also, Sue has
a serious boyfriend, who is about to pop the question, but things
are complicated by Dundee's presence. Sue will have to make up
Hogan and Kozlowski have great on screen chemistry.
I guess they had pretty good chemistry off screen as well, for
the two eventually married.
