Sue Charlton (Linda Kozlowski) is from New York City and has traveled down to the Australian outback in search of a man who fights and wrestles Crocodiles. The man who says he can introduce Sue to such a man is none other than Walter Reilly (John Meillon). Sitting at a bar she awaits this Crocodile Man by the name of Michael J "Crocodile " Dundee (Paul Hogan) Adventurer Extraordinaire.
He walks into the room and is not the biggest of men but he does know how to make an entrance. The two talk and she is supposed to be taken where this fete was to have taken place. Now they start out the next morning and travel into the outback for awhile. When they can no longer travel by Jeep they have to hoof it. They walk a fair distance when it is time to settle in for the night. The two are sitting around a fire and Mick is talking his stories and Sue is eating it all up when they hear gunshots and it's poachers. Mick starts shooting back and making it look like the kangaroo's are doing the shooting.
The poachers take off and they settle down for the night and sleep. The next day they come up on the boat that Mick was in when the croc came for the fight. Now the story is told and later they make camp for the second night. This night they have company, Neville Bell (David Gulpilil) a city Aborigine. His father is an elder and makes him come to all the tribal business. Mick tags along and so does Sue but when she is spotted she heads back to the camp.
Now Sue almost gets eaten up by a croc as she gets close to the water edge. Mick saves her and Sue calms down. In the time they are sitting there she asks Mick to come back to New York with her. This is where I must stop and let you finish with the movie. Director Peter Faiman does a great job bringing us into the Australian outback. The story is wonderful and the movie is a breath of fresh air. So sit back and enjoy the Crocodile Man coming to New York. It's fantastic.
