The 1988 follow-up to Paul Hogan's international hit "Crocodile" Dundee is less interesting and more formulaic than the first film, while a silly suspense element about a retaliatory drug kingpin has an air of contrivance. The story reverses the course of "Crocodile" Dundee, this time beginning in New York City and switching to the rugged bush country of Australia, where Dundee and his companion (Linda Kozlowski) run into trouble with the aforementioned villain. Hogan's natural charm keeps the movie afloat and easy to stick with, but the production lacks all the freshness and surprise of its predecessor. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

What other sense of a sequel were we supposed to be provided with? I mean, they had to think of something. And this was it! It has a more intense conflict, still with a light tone applied to it-- and much humor. We are allowed a look into the life of Crocodile Dundee, and what he looks like when being confronted with a conflict on his own turf down under. It was nice to see him play games and run numbers on the bad guys. Quite memorable this film was, indeed!
Be sure to check out the third installment, "Crocodile Dundee In Los Angeles" It's not as serious of a tone, but still a great watch!
As the film opens, Mick (Paul Hogan) is happily ensconced in New York City with his lady-friend, journalist Sue Charlton (Linda Kozlowski), and life is good. Mick, however, tired of just laying about has decided itï¿½s time to seek gainful employment, and sets out to do just that. His job search gets put on hold, though, when Sueï¿½s ex-husband, Bob Tanner (Dennis Boutsikaris), a journalist currently covering a story in South America, sends some photographs heï¿½s taken-- the subject of which is of a particularly serious and sensitive nature-- to Sue, and something else arrives along with the them: Trouble. Trouble, as in the man in the pictures is one ï¿½Ricoï¿½ (Hechter Ubarry), a big time drug dealer who is more than a little concerned about the compromising position these particular photos will undoubtedly put him in. He will stop at nothing to get them, and he has the ï¿½muscleï¿½ to do it. But thereï¿½s one small item Rico hasnï¿½t factored in to his agenda and his plan of attack. And his name is Mick Dundee.Read more ›
It just gets worse. As Croc decides to get a job dealing stationary, the girlfriend's old boyfriend/friend/who cares he's dead 10 minutes after you see him anyhow gets pictures of drug dealers shooting people. He's shot but not before getting the pictures to her. Oh yeah, and the drug dealers seem a little more like drag queens than big time dealers. But then again, these are Hispanic actors and it would be years before Robert Rodriguez did any movies that anyone would want to be in, so they took the dealer roles because La Cage Aux Falles wasn't hiring. There's also the big white guy with the ponytail who would later go on to Hong Kong and get beat up by Jet Li in a dozen movies, but he's pretty inconsequential here.
And when the Crocodile Dundee gets a "gang" (although real gang members don't wear mohawks because their friends would beat them senseless for it. Nor do they cultivate a Boy George look, unless they have discovered new things in prison) to help him break into the dealer's house and rescue the girlfriend, the tamest version of Wild One comes on the soundtrack and you know that Iggy Pop should sue whoever convinced him to give the rights over.
And the less said about the cowboy junk at the end the better. Although it's not as awful as the rest of the movie, you are cheernig on the bad guys by this point, if only it would mean that the movie would end sooner.
So if you remember watching this movie as a kid and you are tempted to buy it now, don't. Let your memories lie dormant without trouble. This is not even a bad movie that you can enjoy (like Showgirls). This is just bad.

One can enjoy a movie that is fiction but can still portay some of the Australian outback scenery taking into account that htis is a basically a fictional romantic talePublished on June 28 2013 by Clarence Huibers
An easy, please-all movie, in the form of an action comedy.
Sympathetic characters well acted, uncomplicated yet interesting plot.
