Good Classic Movie

I watched this when I was a kid and a few times as an adult. I've always loved how down-to-Earth the characters are. In my opinion, it shows an example of devotion to friends and the one you love. Watching as a child, it was also made pretty plain that drugs were a bad idea, without being preachy.

Less content than the first

In this movie Mick and Sue get involved with stopping a drug lord. Not quite as touching as the first. Some swearing s-words, Lords name in vain and some lesser stuff. Drugs are the vice of the bad guys, nodrug use shown though. Sexual content: a ditzy intern asks Sue what Dundee is like in bed. Sue replies "I don't know he still sleeps on the floor" , a man who is going to jump off a bluiding claims his boy friend betrayed him, shocking Dundee. so much he almost falls. Dundee asks Sue to take her bra off for a trap, neither the auddience or Dundee sees anything. Dundee sees Sue in the Shower scareing her, Crude humor: A cop, who was following and lost Dundee, goes up to a urnial and pulls his pants open, Dundee comes up to him asks him if he's finnished and puts a knife to his crotch, when Dundee gets his point a cross, the cop looks down his pants and says "you ok buddy". In a chase in the out back Wally pretends to pee so he can talk to Dundee with out the thugs knowing. Violence: some bloodless gunplay, and a few fists are thrown. This movie is about as fun as the first one, but just look out for content mentioned

Great role models
Too much violence
Too much swearing

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (1 ):

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.
