A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this movie.
Hero is shown "fishing" with dynamite. Villains are stereotypical Latin drug lords, drug runners, and henchmen. Some Asian stereotypes seen as well.
Violence & Scariness
Wild West-like shoot-'em-ups in multiple scenes (without blood or gore). Off-camera murders. Dundee as "super human" bests villains in scene after scene of physical action, including dangling a man from a skyscraper. A kidnapping at gunpoint. Threats with knife, hairpulling, subway gunplay, punches.

Sex, Romance & Nudity
Some spoken innuendo: "what's he like in bed?" and "how's it hanging?" one romantic kiss; heroine shows her bra to entice bad guys and capture them.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that most of this movie's 110 minutes are spent with guns blazing while the hero and heroine are in constant jeopardy from marauding drug lords. It's a repetitious cycle of getting caught, getting away, and beginning the chase again. The villains are Hispanic cartoon stereotypes who continually exhibit foolish, self-destructive behavior. With almost no blood or gore, the violence is mostly unreal, not scary, and generally reminiscent of 1940s and '50s Western violence (i.e., Roy Rogers or Hopalong Cassidy). Hero Dundee's idea of recreational fishing is dynamiting a river and scooping up the dead fish afterward.

Is It Any Good?
CROCODILE DUNDEE II is far less charming than the original. It forgoes the humor and quirky characters, settling instead for predictable action and stock Latin drug dealers in a slow-moving, low-energy shoot-'em-up adventure. The dashing crocodile hunter, once gentle, funny, and irresistible, has given way to a crass hero who can trounce just about anyone. As his female counterpart, Sue mostly plays the damsel in distress, looking beautiful, smiling wistfully at the most inappropriate moments, and being awed by the exploits of her new best friend. It's a disappointing follow-up to an inventive original.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
