Review
'CROCODILE' DUNDEE is truly a great comedy film about a crocodile hunter who goes from the Australian Outback to the big city of New York. Paul Hogan did a fabulous job of playing the title character that made him look recognisable but without Hogan there would be no Crocodile Dundee. The funniest and famous part of the movie which I like is the scene where Dundee is being threatened by a mugger with a small knife and starts saying "That's not a knife" then pulls out his large knife and finishes his sentence "That's a knife".

One of Australia's beloved comedy features that I ever watched, 'CROCODILE' DUNDEE is a must-see classic for those who enjoyed watching Paul Hogan's films and enjoyed Aussie movies. Please stay tuned for the next movie I'm gonna review FINDING NEMO.

Star rating: (4/5) Good Movie
