Crocodile Dundee [DVD] [1986]

The Australian outback will never be the same when Mick Dundee hits the streets of New York City in the 1980s hit comedy Crocodile Dundee. Featuring a 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer, Crocodile Dundee looks as good as a shrimp on the "barbie." The colors and black levels are all very well rendered with only the slightest amount of edge enhancement present. While a few of the scenes look slightly dark, overall this is a very nice-looking transfer by Paramount. Audio is presented in Dolby Digital 2.0 Surround and is less impressive than the video. Although the dialogue, effects, and music are even, the soundtrack tends to have a flat sound to it. Crocodile Dundee is a film that would have benefited greatly from a Dolby 5.1 remix. Also included on this disc is a Dolby Mono 1.0 track in French, as well as English captions. Fans of this series will want to angrily chuck their boomerang at someone as the only extra feature on this disc is an original theatrical trailer for Crocodile Dundee in anamorphic widescreen. Otherwise, fans will be happy to see their beloved outback hero in a well-done widescreen edition.

Synopsis

Crocodile Dundee
Accustomed to a simple life in the Australian Outback, a legendary crocodile hunter has trouble adjusting to his new surroundings when an American journalist brings him to New York City. This Australian comedy delivers exactly what one would expect: plenty of fish-out-of-water gags about the hunter's reactions to the absurdity of modern urban life. Though he initially seems rather naive, Paul Hogan's "Crocodile" Dundee soon demonstrates that his natural ways are rather quite well-suited to city life, proving himself equally adept at defeating muggers and charming members of high society. Along the way, as one might expect, a romance develops between the rugged hunter and the hardened journalist, who finds herself enchanted by his down-to-earth behavior. The story is not particularly original, but the film's good-natured humor proved extremely palatable to audiences, as indicated by its worldwide box office success. ~ Judd Blaise, Rovi
