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.

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 mistake.

Oh, sh*t.

[ 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?


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]

Ah, I think we just found out|which one of us is the white man.


Yeah, I heard about that.

[ Laughing ] Yeah, well,|he's standin' right next to me now.

- Oh, great.|- Yeah, okay. Yeah, later.

- So, are you doin' a show tonight?|- Yeah.

Already did the matinee.|Gotta keep the tourists happy, eh?

Oh, well, mate, these days|they're our bread and butter.

That's sort of what we are now in|the 20th century-- tourist attractions.

As they say,|that's show business, mate.

By the way, Mick,

it's the 21 st century, mate.

it's the 21 st century, mate.

Oh, yeah, I-I knew that.

- See you, Art.|- See you later.

- See ya, Troy.|- See ya, Mikey.

- Wanna go fishing?|- Yeah.

- So, what did you learn today?|- Oh, just school stuff.

But we had an earthquake video,

and we learned how they happen|in California, America.

- Did you see one when you were there?|- No, I was in New York.

They don't have|earthquakes there.

People there wouldn't stand for it.|They'd be like,

[ Imitating New York Accent ]|"Earthquake? Hey, this is Brooklyn.

Get outta here.|Forget about it. "

They're tough.

Whoa, homework time.|What's that?

- It's goanna turd.|- That means he's close by. Find him.

- There he is.|- Yep.

- You hungry? Want him for dinner?|- Yuck, no way.

- Then you better miss.|- Dad, I never miss.

[ Gulping ]


Quick, Dad, there's a big razorback|up there. Can you do it?

- Do what?|- You know, that trick. Please.

All right, but it won't work|if you're scared. He'll smell it.

I know. I won't be scared.|I promise.

Don't look at him|till I do.

I really won't be scared|if I can carry your knife.

[ Imitates Growling ]|Cool.

[ Laughing ]

Okay, Dad, I'll talk it over|with Mick. Uh-huh.

No. No, and if we decide|we need to be married,

I promise you'll be|the first to know.

Would you like to say hello|to your grandson? Okay. Hang on.

Hey, Mikey.|Come say hi to Grandpa.

Hi, Grandpa.

Pretty good, yeah.

- [ Sighs ]|- So, what's new?

Oh, Tom Zetland-- he ran|the L. A. bureau of Dad's paper--

was just killed|in a car accident.

- What, was he a mate of yours?|- Actually, no.

But the thing is, Mick, Dad is now|pleading with me to take his place...

while he looks|for a permanent replacement.

What you're sayin' is your dad wants|you to go work for him in Los Angeles.


For how long?

Well, I told him I might|fill in for a few weeks.

Well, tell me this, if we lived|over there in the city,

- would you take the job then?|- Oh, sure.

I mean, I was raised|by a newspaperman,

and, well, I don't know, I guess|it just gets in your blood.

That settles it then.|Take the job.

At least for the rest of the year.|Me and Mikey'll go with you.

- You're kidding?|- No. Good for him. Help him decide.


- Your dad owns a newspaper, right?|- Mm-hmm.

You're his only child. Someday|Mikey's gonna have to decide.

Does he want to be an assistant|crocodile wrangler...

or the owner|of a big-city newspaper?

That's a tough one.|And the travel will be good for him.

Remember how my trip|to New York...

sort of opened my eyes|to the ways of the world?

Made me a lot more--|What's the word?

- Sophisticated?|- Yeah.

By the way, Mick, what are|you doing with that awful trap?

You're not going to use that|on some poor animal?

No, I'm lending it to Donk.

Some mongrel's been sneaking|into the pub at night...

and knocking off his grog.
