CROCODILE DUNDEE: Paul Hogan’s hilarious, endearing performance made “Crocodile” Dundee the biggest box-office comedy smash of 1986! Michael J. “Crocodile” Dundee (Hogan) is a free spirited Australian who hunts crocodiles with his bare hands, stares down giant water buffaloes, and drinks mere mortals under the table.

Beautiful and tenacious reporter Sue Charlton (Linda Kozlowski) gets more than just a story as the “wonder from Down Under” rocks the Big Apple to its core.

Just as the eccentric Australian is starting to adjust to life in New York City. Dundee and his beautiful girlfriend (Linda Kozlowski) are targeted for death by a gang of ruthless drug dealers. Dundee evens the odds by leading the big-city hoods into the treacherous Australian outback. And before long, the bad guys find out that Down Under could mean six feet down under! If you liked “CROCODILE DUNEE” you’re going to love “CROCODILE” DUNDEE II!
