How long has it been since Paul Hogan's grizzled but charming alter ego appeared in a new movie? Well, long enough for the character, Crocodile Dundee, and his American companion, Sue Charleton (Hogan's real-life wife, Linda Kozlowski), to have raised a 9-year-old son, Mikey (Serge Cockburn), in the rough-and-tumble Australian outback that Dundee calls home. As with its two predecessors, however,Crocodile Dundee in Los Angelesis no domestic comedy but a fish-out-of-water comic adventure, this time finding Dundee and his mate Jacko (Alec Wilson) relocated in balmy Southern California to help journalist Sue investigate a crooked studio executive. The jokes are predictable (L.A. traffic, Hollywood phonies, yoga) but fun, anyway, and there are some celebrity cameos to spice things up. Australian director Simon Wincer, who worked with Hogan onLightning Jack, is very effective at keeping this light material briskly moving along even if he can't make it any more memorable than it has a right to be. All in all, this is a pleasant but forgettable experience, a far cry from the Capra-esque leanings of Hogan's first screen outing asCrocodile Dundee.--Tom Keogh

In this third movie in the Crocodile Dundee genre, Mick Dundee is transplanted to Los Angeles, where he is once again trying to play the hick in the big city. However, that premise fails, the jokes are predictable and when they are not, they come across as dumb. The scene where Mick and his friend are ordering food at Wendy's is too long and very boring. There is another scene where some Hollywood people …

Pros: HAs some funny Parts     Cons: No real Story.     The Bottom Line: Not bad, but nothing Fresh.     Plot Details: This opinion reveals minor details about the movie's plot. There is an old axiom in Hollywood that states that if a person had a hit once   with a certain character, then odds are enough people will want to see the character   again in sequels    This trend was very evident during the sequel …
