Plot: Australian Outback adventurer Mick "Crocodile" Dundee travels to Los Angeles with his young son while his longtime companion suspects foul play at a movie studio. Runtime: 92 mins Release Date: 20 Apr 2001
Personally I have never been a fan of the crocodile Dundee series. I find the humor to be childish and the action to be less than sub-par. But my mind sure was changed after viewing this one! I found myself delightfully entertained throughout the entirety of the movie. I was either laughing hysterically or on the edge of my seat at all the crazy mishaps Dundee managed to get himself into. I figured he'd have a difficult time with the culture change, but not do such crazy things like he did! LOL absolutely nuts!! The best part has got to be when they are trying to save the skunk on the <more>
express way! OMG I though for sure I was going to faint from laughing so hectically hard. I mean they stopped the entire freeway just for a skunk. Can you imagine if that really happened in LA!?! People would absolutely freak about it! Either way this is a must see film, I hope they come out with another witty installment as good as this!!!
Quite possibly the biggest blockbuster for the last 20 years!!!!!!!!!!. Seeing Paul Hogan after his triple bypass is a sight for sore eyes. He also looks like Al the care taker at Ward Design the slave trades biggest secret . Crocodile Dundee 3 starts off like any other hardcore film with gratuitous full backtulls. Paul Hogans left quad is abnormally ripped and you can tell from the scars that some varicose veins have been removed from his weathered forehead. The final confrontation between P.Hogan & The Legend, Hulkster the Bollywood Hogan aka Clarence Bodicker aka Francis Dollahyde, <more>
rocks.The fully CGI battle between the good & evil versions of Paul Backer Hogan is up there with Superman 3. Crocodile D3 is the absolute mutts nuggets. Maximum bacon rind. NEAL BEFORE ZOD KING OF THE BONERS.!!!!!!!!!!!!!??????
If you liked the first two Dundee's you're guaranteed to like this one. (by d_melink)
If you liked the first two Dundee's you're guaranteed to like this one.There are a steady flow of chuckles and a few laugh out loud moments in this entertaining installment. Hogan and newcomer Cockburn have good chemistry and for once a child actor is not an annoying brat. Equally good is Alec Wilson as Jacko, Mick's outback mate who comes to LA as a baby sitter.There are a few jokes that only Americans would get, a few that are corny and a few that fall flat. It is almost a cross between Crocodile Dundee and "Crocodile" Dundee II in its writing. The action sequence at <more>
the end of this one is far more comical than the second and doesn't take itself as serious. One factor that may be missing is the loss of the character Wally deceased actor John Mellion All in all Hogan's charisma takes this beyond just an average family film, and a worthy sequel to a great franchise. I did wonder once it had finished, if this film would be more successful if it had been released closer to the first two and sadly I'd say yes. Still, it is a good reason to head down to the cinema for a light family film.
Go see this film. Critics need to lighten up... (by Singary)
It's been a very long time since I've seen a movie with my children that did not have to rely on gross-out humor just to get a laugh. "Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles" is a FUN movie.It's fun to let go and get in on the silliness of the jokes. Critics should not be comparing it to the first or even the second Dundee movies. This film is wonderfully different than both of them, and uniquely funny and endearing all on its own. Yes, Paul Hogan's Mick Dundee is still the same--still sweetly naive. Why critics feel the need to rip the character up for that just goes to <more>
show how jaded our society has become when people can't appreciate and embrace a quality like that in a film character. I, for one, love that my children can sit and watch a character who is moral, who is loving and attentive to his wife and child, who seeks out new things and learns from them and for the most part who sees the good in people. What's wrong with sending our children THOSE messages?
i 've read some very bad reviews about this movie.. but hey people.. this movie isn't about a great storyline etc.. It's just about some entertainment...but i would suggest to watch this movie if you like Indiana Jones and movies comme ça.. if you don't, then don't bother to watch this one...to those who saw the first two a long long time ago all ready..You must love this one too.. I did for sure.. go Dundee :
It took a lot less to be nominated for a Razzie back then! (by gdeangel)
Know your target audience. That's where this film missed the boat -- in 2001. This third installment of Crocodile Dundee was ahead of it's time. Because what it was meant to be essentially was a reboot. Thirteen years after the sequel. Yup. Today we get reboots 2 years after a film. Back then nobody even knew what a "reboot" was. There were "remakes" and there were "sequels", but the notion of franchise reboot did not exist.Films 1 and 2 were about a kick-a ss 80's kinda guy who took no s hite but also didn't go around starting s hite. And a <more>
world full of 80's kinda values, and 80's kinda women. Those films were a mix of gags and action -- especially CD2, which is 90% action.Film 3 replays many of the gags from the first films... and exploits many of the same charm moments. And in it, Mick comes off as a much softer character. At the time, people said Hogan looked old. Well, I just watched all three films back to back and he didn't look much older in the third than the first. At the time of the first movie he was already almost 50! Fact is that the script was softer. There was no wrestling crocodiles. No hanging off the ledges of buildings. At one point in a chase, he slams a door on a guy this is a repeat gag from CD2 and in another action scene he climbs a ladder. I don't think he actually punches anyone more on that later in CDLA. More to the point, the film is a societal comedy that, rather than contrasting the bumpkin with the go-go Manhattanite, it contrasted the manly man with the LA uber chic. To be a manly man in 2001, you didn't have to slash up muggers with a 10 inch knife. You just had to have the instinct and courage to not care what other people thought of you. i have a feeling a lot of that came from Hogan and his co-star/wife's experience and attitudes "milling" in Hollywood since the first movies. Now that the farce that is Hollywood glitteratti has been laid bear by the cultural phenomena of twitter and Instagram, the joke with George Hamilton about coffee colonics is funny. In 2001 -- I saw it in the theater's then as a college student -- I just didn't get that joke. I went to see Mick Dundee swing around like a super hero, and instead it was an entire film of him being a normal guy -- a particularly fit septagenarian who could easily pass for 40 -- but a normal guy nonetheless.There are a few abrupt cuts in the film and some not-so-tactful cases of product placement. The fast food bit doesn't work mainly because rather than use an obscure LA burger chain, they used a big chain. The Subaru outback... well, of course we know that's what Crocodile Dundee would drive in the bush, but to fit the theme of being out-of-place, we'd rather seem him rambling along in an old Land Cruiser. In fact it could have been a great joke in 2001 for him to be driving along in an international scout making lots of smoke, and the roads filled with Priuses, and he'd say something like "I got to get rid of this car - it's got to be causing all this smog", and then he gets the Outback and the highway is now full of giant H1's / Range Rovers and Excursions. Lack of thoughtfulness in the writing does cheapen the film. But it's more introspective and socially in tune with the things people find ridiculous. At that time, those things were mostly in LA I guess, but now that they've infected wholesale American culture, the social jokes are funnier. Making fun of the clapper, though, is still just stale, lazy writing. And it also suffers from a bit of political-correctness itself.You see, sometime between 1988, when every boy got into at least one brawl where he had to use his fists on the playground that ended with a trip to the principal and some detention, and 2001, where every playground brawl in the schoolyard was a scandalous case of life-destorying bullying, and every boy who used his fists was doomed to grow up to become an evil war monger destined to kill women and babies in the jungles of Vietnam like their fathers... and every mother in America was out to keep that from happening... the use of the fist became more evil than "fantasy" violence with guns. Yup, the lawyers had their way. Every individual got the imaginary bubble which cannot be invaded without being sued. The final scene is an outright recognition of that fact, maybe because somewhere in the script editing process the exact point was made: you can't have a character go around punching people who insult him. You also can't show women as sexual objects. You can't show homosexuals in a negative light. And so on. Which brings me back to one of the points about why this film was panned in 2001. What was the biggest action film of 2001 excluding Harry Potter and LOTR -- which were fantasy not live-action . The answer, surprisingly, is Rush Hour 2, in which there is more punching and kicking than probably all 3 Crocodile Dundee films. But it was used as perfect punctuation for a real no s hite guy standing up for himself/his woman / people in general. Whereas in Rush Hour 2 is was to showcase martial arts skills that most humans can't do even if they trained for years. On the other hand, 2001 also gave us "Joe Somebody" which tackled the phenomena of mind-neutered men head on. What audiences and critics were really saying when they complained about CD3 was that they had paid their money to escape out of the world of male-mind-neutering, and there just wasn't enough tough-as -leather moments in the script. There are a few "tough-as-leather is out of place" moments. And the protagonist recognizes that in the film, which makes him seem old, even if he doesn't actually look much older than he did 13 years earlier.
Hilarious -- if you're into it. (by underworld101)
I saw this in Germany on "surprise" night. That means, you go to the theater and pay only four or five bucks, get to see something new, but you don't know what you're going to see. On top of that, its always in the original language without subtitles. Problematic if its a French or Chinese movie - but they were *always* in English.When the curtains came up, one always had those moments of dreadful anticipation. And DAMN if the last thing I EVER expected was Crocodile Dundee in LA. I didn't even know they had made another one...My German comrades didn't get as big a <more>
kick as I did out of it -- but this is just a fun, fun movie -- and if you've had a few beers and grew up with the originals you'll enjoy it tremendously. The story is pretty weak, mostly an excuse to get Paul hogan cracking jokes, but any excuse is good if it means Paul hogan is cracking jokes...You'll get a big kick out of it or you'll be miserable. I thought it was awesome.ps: Mike Tyson!
enjoyable family entertainment;fine comic perf. from Hogan (by django-1)
I went in to this film hoping to entertain my children, a few of their friends who came along, and myself for 90 minutes on a weekend afternoon, and what I got was quality old-fashioned family entertainment and a reintroduction to Paul Hogan's fine comic talent. To most kids my children's ages, Hogan is better known as a spokesman for Subaru station wagons than as an actor. However, he is a wonderful comic actor, fully deserving of vehicles such as this. The yokel- among-the-sophisticates plot is timeless, ranging from Buster Keaton's "Elmer" character through the Bowery <more>
Boys, Ma and Pa Kettle, Jerry Lewis, Jim Varney, etc. Hogan is working in that classic tradition, and his skills as a physical comedian, his superb comic timing, and his loveable persona will make this film a favorite on cable TV and as a video rental for decades to come. There were no dazzling special effects, nothing shocking, no social or political agenda--just well-performed, funny family comedy. The only flaw, if it can be called that, in the film was that Paul Rodriguez's character was not given enough screen time. I could imagine those two making a great screen pair. Maybe in the next film, Mick Dundee could call on his old friend from the movie business, the character played by Rodriguez, to help him out of some jam. With that large Aussie sidekick who accompanied Dundee in the second half of the film the name escapes me playing off both Hogan and Rodriguez, you'd have a great combination! Think about it, Paul Hogan and Lance Hool! I'll pay to bring my family to Crocodile Dundee 4 when it comes out. We had an 8 year old with us viewing the film, and she loved it, so I'd guess that the film should be acceptable to children 6 or over, and there's nothing really offensive in it if you have to take children younger than that. With this and SPY KIDS coming out in the same month, it's been a good season for family films.
How one can use sheer human ingenuity to outsmart...to survive in the outbacks as well as in the concrete jungle!, (by saykeng)
I have watched all the three Crocodile Dundee movies in the theatre as well as their re-runs on cable TV at home: Crocodile Dundee I; - Crocodile Dundee II; - Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles: I am very impressed by the hilarious antics of Mick Dundee Paul Hogan . I also like his charming, down-to-earth character. What I have enjoyed most in watching the three movies is that, I have learned that one can use sheer human ingenuity & creativity to overcome obstacles, no matter how intimidating they are...some life-threatening ones, too! Just watch how Mick Dundee sometimes with his <more>
side-kick out-thinking all the predators &/or bad guys in all three movies...in the treacherous hot outbacks of Australia & the mean streets of New York When a mugger poked a small knife in front of his face, Mick took out his jungle knife & said: "That's not a knife. This is a knife! ...& mercilessly cold concrete jungle of Los Angeles. On the whole, I have enjoyed watching again all the three movies, each with its own engaging story & romantic notion of adventure. As a strategy consultant/success coach on life survival skills, I have added these three movies to my resource repertoire.
