"Crocodile Dundee In L.A." kicks off in high gear, beginning with a close up of a crocodile's eye and then continuing with a beautiful montage of Australian wildlife before the cameras turn to our hero Michael J. Crocodile Dundee who is seen sitting in his canoe, sharpening his now famous giant knife, while a monstrous crocodile lurks beneath the murky waters. The giant croc attacks suddenly and tears Mick's boat to pieces forcing Mick to jump for his life onto a tree branch. When his mate Jacko comes to the rescue the inevitable also happens to him. To add to the fun a group of tourists just happen to pop along to see Australia's most famous crocodile hunters perched up on a tree like two frightened children. This opening sequence is easily one of the best in the entire trilogy.
In this third instalment of the Dundee trilogy we get two Dundee's for the price of one when Paul Hogan's Crocodile hunter mate Jacko (Alec Wilson) joins him in this L.A. adventure. This time round its 12 years later and our happy couple, Mick and Sue now have a son Mikey Dundee in the form of Serge Cockburn. Sue's father who needs her to help out at his L.A. newspaper branch calls the trio to L.A. The fun starts when Dundee and son have to fill in their time while Sue is working. The two get up to some mischief at Venice Beach, at the local film studio and they create havoc on the L.A. freeway when Dundee decides to stop his vehicle to attend to an injured skunk. The hilarity doesn't let up when Dundee's Australian sidekick, Jacko, arrives from Down Under. Mick decides to treat Jacko to a night on the town by taking him to a 5-star restaurant meal at Wendy's followed by a personally guided sight seeing tour of L.A.'s flashy nightlife. Paul Hogan puts in another charismatic performance and his real-life wife Linda Kozlowski continues to look radiant in the role that made her famous. Look out for Hollywood celebrity George Hamilton and boxing giant Mike Tyson in small cameo appearances.
"Crocodile Dundee in LA" is a fitting finale to a great trilogy of films. It ends in style when Mick Dundee and Sue Charlton finally wed, appropriately, in the Australian outback. The ending is complimented by a superb re-mix of the Australian pop classic "Down Under" performed by Men at Work over the closing credits. All in all, the "Crocodile Dundee Trilogy" is great old-fashioned family entertainment at its best and a rarity among today's computer generated special effects films.
