Crocodile Dundee In Los Angeles

Synopsis: From the opening shot of a Jurassic Park-esque reptilian eye, you know you are in for a wild ride. As Mick "Crocodile" Dundee sits in a canoe sharpening his famous knife, a monstrous croc hides somewhere in the deep. The croc suddenly attacks, tearing Mick's boat to pieces and leaving him and mate Jacko up a tree. Life for Mick can only get easier, right? When Mick arrives at home, he discovers longtime companion Sue's newspaper-mogul father has called, and needs her help on an article at the paper's Los Angeles branch. Mick, who recognizes his importance in the modernizing bush is now no more than as a tourist attraction, agrees to join her, and together Mick, Sue and son Mikey head for Los Angeles. Here the adventure truly begins, as Mick and Jacko brave a cowboy bar where the horsemen are of a different color, and a Hollywood film party where everyone seems interested in Mick's mate Malcolm "Mal" Gibson's colorful exploits. Sue's article soon leads to a sleazy film producer, so Mick

Okay, ladies and gents,|Walkabout Creek Hotel.

Last chance for a coldie|before we hit the outback.

G'day, all.|I'm your hostess.

You can call me Ruby or love or|anything, but never late for breakfast.

[ Laughing ]

And what's your pleasure, folks?

Gin and tonic, please,|and a Pims for the lady.

Gin and tonic, please,|and a Pims for the lady.

"G" and "T" and a Pims.

No, I asked for|a gin and tonic and a Pims.

Yeah, well,|there's no harm in asking.

Couple of beers|will be just fine.

That's the ticket, old mate.

- Hey, Nugget.|- G'day, Sue.

- Where's Mick?|- We got a panic call from the Rangers.

They spotted a huge croc|in the Tarrabool swimming hole.

Actually, we tossed a coin to see|who'd catch it, and Mick won.

- He went after it alone, did he?|- No.

Jacko Jackson's gonna|meet him out there.

And Jacko, as you know, is the second|best crocodile man in the territory.

So you got no worries, love.

My only worry is I need Mick|to pick Mikey up after school.

I'll tell Mick for you.|If he gets tied up with that croc,

- I'll pick up the young fella myself.|- Thanks.

I thought you were|the second best crocodile hunter.

- Oh, well.|- Oh, he's just modest.

He's one of the best,|you know?

Hey, Sue. If anything ever happens|to Mick, I'm gonna come courtin'.

Well, let's just hope|nothing happens to Mick.

Now, where are you,|you big ugly bugger?

This is as good as it gets.

Come on.|Come to Uncle Mick.

Big...

big...

big mistake.

Oh, shit.

[ Sighs ]

- G'day, Mick.|- G'day, Jacko.

What are you doing up there?

Just sittin' up here, thinking|about a new career, mate.

Where's your boat?

On the bottom.

- How'd that happen?|- Croc pulled it under.

Pulled it under?

How big was it?

That big.

Now what?

Well, now we scramble ashore|and go to plan "B. "

Don't move.

Well, could be worse, mate.

Oh, yeah?|How's that, Mick?

Well, someone could|see us up here,

up the tree, outsmarted|by a bloody crocodile.

- [ Chattering]|- [ Groans ]

[ Chattering Continues ]

[Woman ] So help me God, if I see|a snake, I'm gonna drop dead.

How are they gonna catch a crocodile|up there in the tree?

So, which one is the second best|crocodile hunter in the land?

[ All Laughing ]

Okay, everyone, we're on|a tight schedule here.

We better keep moving.|Don't want to disturb the hunters.

Back on the bus,|please, folks.

That's the way.

Bloody Nugget.|Great, eh, mate?

Two best crocodile hunters|in the entire Northern Territory, eh?

Yeah.

We look like a couple|of real pelicans, don't we, eh?

[ Both Laughing ]

You know what I hate about crocs?|They got legs. Come on.

Oh, remember the good old days|when we just used to shoot 'em?

Yeah, mate, but if there were no more|crocs, they wouldn't need hunters.

Oh, they'd need hunters...|to keep the wild pigs in control.

Pigs?|Oh, not the same.

I don't want my kid saying,|"There goes my dad, Pig Dundee. "

Do you want to be known|as Porker Jackson?

Well, no.

Nah, we need the crocs, mate.|They make us somebodies.

Without 'em, we're|just a couple of old bushwhackers...

with bite marks on our legs.

We'll get him tomorrow.|Same time.

Hey, I knew a pig farmer called|Porker O'Brien once. Hah!

You know why|they called him Porker?

I hate it when he does that.

Gives me the creeps.

- Thanks, mate.|- No worries.

So, you got out of that tree|all right, eh?

Now, how could you possibly|know about that already?

My people have ways of talking|that no white man can understand.

Arthur, you're so full of bullshit.

No, it's a kind|of mental telepathy, eh?

- Yeah, mental, all right.|- [ Cell Phone Ringing]
