Crocodile Dundee

Continuity mistake: When Dundee enters his NY hotel for the first time, he is smoking and puts the ashes on top of his hat because he cannot find anywhere else to put them. In the next shot, the ashes are no longer there.

Continuity mistake: At the beginning when the helicopter lands, the helicopter's shadow goes out toward the rear right of it (from the pilot's perspective), but when Sue grabs her bags and walks to Walter, the shadow is now cast to the front right. Since Sue got out and was standing next to it, the helicopter did not move in the meantime. (00:03:15)

Continuity mistake: When Sue, Mick and Richard are in the restaurant, first Sue is holding her menu, the next shot she is holding Richard's hand, the next shot she is holding the menu again.

Continuity mistake: As Mick gets up after Nevil leaves, he has a white tin cup in his hand. A second later, after the angle change, it's suddenly gone.

Movie Nut

Factual error: Not only do we have to question why the croc doesn't just pull the woman into the water, which is covered by another mistake. But, why does the strap on the canteen not break during this scene as well - it's probably got about 1500 pounds pulling on it.

More quotes from Crocodile Dundee

Trivia: The precis for Croc Dundee is a New Yorker travels to Australia, finds an Australian man, takes him back to New York, falls in love with him, drops her current beau and marries him. This mirrors reality. Linda Kozlowski married Paul Hogan after meeting on this film. He left his wife for her. In the sequel the characters return to Australia for protection, loved it and stayed. Likewise the real life stars moved back to Australia and lived in Byron Bay for 17 years or so.

Question: During the scene with "live it up" playing in the background, what was it and where were they? With Simone being there it is obviously full of hookers but was it a party, and if so, whose and why? The whole scene just feels weird.

The_Iceman

Answer: It is a party thrown by one of Sue's socialite friends, presumably the husky-voiced woman whose crotch Mick grabs. The party is not "full of hookers", Simone is there as the hired escort of the old man she is dancing with, who Mick naively believes to be her father. We can assume the old man paid for Simone to be his date to the party and likely for some time alone with her afterwards. There is no stated reason for why the party is being thrown.
