25 best Australian movies ever
Crocodile Dundee (1986)
Paul “Hoges” Hogan is right up there with flavour-free beer and middle-class teen soap operas for Australia’s top exports. Crocodile Dundee was his big-screen hit, a rom-com about a stuck-up New York journalist (Linda Kozlowski) who – slightly predictably – falls in love with Hogan’s rough-living bushman, Mick Dundee, while on assignment in the Australian outback. She takes him back to the States with more-than-slightly-predicable results.
A dated dose of nostalgic charm for children of the ‘80s that spawned the immortal “that’s not a knife” line.
