Overview

The Australian outback will never be the same when Mick Dundee hits the streets of New York City in the 1980s hit comedy Crocodile Dundee. Featuring a 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer, Crocodile Dundee looks as good as a shrimp on the "barbie." The colors and black levels are all very well rendered with only the slightest amount of edge enhancement present. While a few of the scenes look slightly dark, overall this is a very nice-looking transfer by Paramount. Audio is presented in Dolby Digital 2.0 Surround and is less impressive than the video. Although the dialogue, effects, and music are even, the soundtrack tends to have a flat sound to it. Crocodile Dundee is a film that would have benefited greatly from a Dolby 5.1 remix. Also included on this disc is a Dolby Mono 1.0 track in French, as well as English captions. Fans of this series will want to angrily chuck their boomerang at someone as the only extra feature on this disc is an original theatrical trailer for Crocodile Dundee in anamorphic widescreen. Otherwise, fans will be happy to see their beloved outback hero in a well-done widescreen edition.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
The worldwide hit Crocodile Dundee made Australian Paul Hogan a household name in the U.S. and introduced "G'Day, Mate" to the popular vernacular. The basis for the film is simple and relatively charming: girl brings tough country guy to the big city and he falls in love with her. It's King Kong all over again; or more specifically, an idea loosely stolen from one of the Johnny Weissmuller Tarzan movies, Tarzan's New York Adventure. Unfortunately, the romantic angle in Dundee is undermined by the lack of chemistry between Hogan and co-star Linda Kozlowski, whose performance is generally poor. What remains is a comedy about an out-of-towner winning over the loonies of New York City, and cartoonish as it may be, the film is carried by Hogan's charisma. He's bemused, good-natured, and darn-near irresistible. This is the role that Hogan was born to do, and it's hard to imagine him ever finding a more suitable part.
