Crocodile Dundee

1986 PG-13 1h 38m DVD
  • Overview
  • Details
When a New York reporter (Linda Kozlowski) plucks crocodile hunter Dundee (Paul Hogan) from the Australian Outback for a visit to the Big Apple, it's a clash of cultures and a recipe for good-natured comedy as naïve Dundee negotiates the concrete jungle. Dundee proves that his instincts are quite useful in the city and adeptly handles everything from wily muggers to high-society snoots without breaking a sweat. Hogan's script earned an Oscar nod.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Crocodile Dundee is an '80s comedy that features violence and substance use, including one instance of cocaine use. There's near-constant drinking and cigarette smoking and several fight scenes. The language ("s--t" and one "f--k") and sexuality (Sue wears revealing outfits sans bra, including a thong bathing suit; there are prostitutes) are on par with most PG-13 films. Still, the humor of the "fish out of water" genre conveys some positive themes about Australian and Aboriginal culture, being in tune with nature, and being kind.

Sexual Content

Sue wears revealing outfits sans bra, including a thong bathing suit. Two prostitutes tell Croc they'd "give him one for free." Dundee spends most of the film shirtless, in one scene in the bath (no nudity is shown). Sue and Dundee kiss and embrace. Dundee checks between two androgynous people's legs.

Violence

Many punches are thrown at a pub brawl against a pimp and his thugs. Kangaroo hunters use guns, as does Dundee to defend the animals. Dundee head-butts a man, saves Sue from the jaws of a croodile, and sports his large knife on several occasions.

Language

Several uses of the words "s--t" and "Jesus," as well as "ass" and one "f--k." A transvestite is referred to as a "fag."

Social Behavior

You don't have to be sophisticated to be smart. Sometimes instincts and innate fairness serve one better than a lifetime of experience in the Big City. Wealth and luxury aren't necessary to happiness. Aboriginal culture is featured positively, but Australians are otherwise depicted stereotypically.

Consumerism

New York tourist sites: Times Square, the Plaza, Newsday newspaper. This is part of the Crocodile Dundee series of movies.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

A partygoer snorts cocaine, which Dundee thinks is a cold remedy. Dundee drinks a LOT, mostly beer. In several scenes, characters drink socially at bars or parties (beer or cocktails). Many people smoke cigarettes.
