Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles



Although our site is very popular, the current economic climate has reduced our revenues just when we need extra security to prevent attacks from hackers who don't like what we do. If you think what we do is worthwhile, please donate or become a member.


Unlike the MPAA we do not assign one inscrutable rating based on age, but 3 objective ratings for SEX/NUDITY, VIOLENCE/GORE and PROFANITY on a scale of 0 to 10, from lowest to highest, depending on quantity and context.

Sex & Nudity
Violence & Gore
1 to 10

MPAA Rating: PG

The crocodile catcher (Paul Hogan) is back, but in this fish-out-of-water story the Australian follows his love (Linda Kozlowski) to Hollywood and ends up playing detective. Also with Jere Burns, Jonathan Banks and Serge Cockburn. [1:30]

SEX/NUDITY 3 - Mild kissing. We see what seem to be a woman's bare breasts in a painting (it's from a distance and there's a glare on the canvas). A few instances of women displaying cleavage. A young boy watches a woman walk away and comments on how nice her posterior is.

VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - Threatening with guns, with a few shots fired but no one hurt. In two "jump" scenes a crocodile jumps out of the water and destroys a kayak with a man in it (both times the man is unharmed). A tree branch with two men sitting on it breaks and the men fall into crocodile-infested waters; a crocodile chases them all the way to the shore. A man punches a man in the neck and knocks him down. A boy throws a block at a rat and knocks it out and then picks it up by the tail. Two men jump on and crush the roof of a convertible with four boys in it; then they dump a trash can on it. A man hits a man over the head with a board. A man rams a door into another man, knocking him out. A man pushes a man off a tall ladder and he falls to the ground. A man is hit by several objects (including a big plastic cow) flying at him from a high-powered fan. Two men in an open bus crash into a wall. A man throws a hollow, plastic boulder over a man's head. A man throws a knife between a man's legs, nearly hitting his crotch. A man puts a gun to a woman's head. A few lions seem ready to charge at several men but do not. A man squeezes and breaks another man's hand. A man stabs a mechanical anaconda. Reckless driving. We hear a man was killed in a car accident.

PROFANITY 3 - A few anatomical and scatological references, several mild obscenities, one religious profanity, several insults. [profanity glossary]

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Tourism, Hollywood, thievery, WWII, marriage, family, drugs, hunting, cross-dressing, racism.

MESSAGE - Skills one needs to survive in the wilderness can be used to catch crooks in the city.

Our Ratings Explained

Tell Friends About Our Site

Become a Member

A CAVEAT: We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and some of our early standards were not as stringent as they are now. We therefore need to revisit many older reviews, especially those written prior to 1998 or so; please keep this in mind if you're consulting a review from that period. While we plan to revisit and correct older reviews our resources are limited and it is a slow, time-consuming process.

INAPPROPRIATE ADS? We have little control over ads since we belong to ad agencies that serve ads automatically; a standing order should prevent provocative ads, but inappropriate ads do sneak in.
