The 1986 movie Crocodile Dundee
was an action comedy starring Paul Hogan as Mick Dundee.
The movie was inspired by the real world life
experiences of an Australian named Rodney Ansell who had
survived months alone in the Australian bush.
There were two follow-up movies, Crocodile Dundee II in
1988 and Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles in 2001.
The movie finds Sue
Charlton, a writer for a newspaper, traveling to a small
village in northern Australia to interview with the
famous bushman, Michael (Mick) J. "Crocodile" Dundee.
At first, she is not impressed by Dundee, but after
spending some time with him in the bush, she realizes he
is actually quite impressive. She falls in love
with him after he rescues her from an attacking
crocodile. She invites him to return to New York
City with her, where he finds some new adventures.
In the end, the two hook up together and live happily
ever after (at least until the sequel).
the sequel, Sue's ex-husband sends some drug cartel
photos of a murder to Sue just before he is killed, and
the cartel goes after her (and Dundee). Sue is
kidnapped, but Dundee rescues her and they retreat back
to Australia, where low and behold, the gangsters
follow. But on his home turf, Dundee is
un-stoppable, and the bad guys are killed and the couple
once again lives happily ever after. The duo did
return for the third installment in 2001.
