One short year after the life-changing adventure in Crocodile Dundee (1986), the rugged hunter from Down Under, Michael J. "Crocodile" Dundee, has managed to become a legend even in New York City. Living happily with Newsday's tenacious journalist, Sue Charlton, Mick will soon find himself neck-deep in trouble, when the love of his life becomes the target of the murderous Colombian drug cartel leader, Luis Rico. Now, from Manhattan's urban jungle to Walkabout Creek's dangerous wilderness, Mick will have to put to good use his unparalleled survival skills, to protect Sue from Rico's evil henchmen. But, do they know that they are no match for the Australian Crocodile Dundee?Written by
It is not known if Paul Hogan had intended for Crocodle Dundee II to be the conclusion of the Crocodile Dundee story. After the film's release, Paul Hogan went on to do Almost an Angel (1990), Lightning Jack (1994), and Flipper (1996). However, Mick Dundee and Sue would finally return in Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles (2001), which took place 13 years later and saw Dundee, Sue, and their 9-year-old son Mikey visit Los Angeles as Sue uncovers a conspiracy at a movie studio. The film received negative reviews and only grossed $39 million worldwide. It was called one of the worst films ever made. See more »

At the very end of the credits you can hear "Dundee" say: "Are you ready to go home now" for a second time. See more »
UK cinema and video versions were cut by a second to briefly shorten the scene in Colombia where Rico shoots a man in the head. The footage was restored for the 2003 DVD release. See more »
I know I am in the minority here but I actually liked this sequel better than the original...and the original was very good and extremely popular.
Maybe I was biased because I played this with some kids present and was pleasantly surprised to hear almost no profanity, which I couldn't say was the case in the first film. It was a "cleaner" movie, and still an equally entertaining one with a good mix of drama, action, comedy and even some good music thrown in. The film has no lulls and 110 minutes go by pretty quickly.
The first half of this movie takes place in New York City, where we last saw "Mick Dundee" (Paul Hogan). The second half, the crocodile man takes his bride (Linda Kozlowski) back to the outback in Australia. Hogan was never more entertaining and, of course, feeling comfortable back in his home territory.
This is just a fun ride all the way and, yes, to use a cliché, good family entertainment.
