Crocodile Dundee

Crocodile Dundee (1986)

7 corrected entries

Corrected entry: This film portrays Australia's top-end as desolate and uncharted. In reality, it was very tourist heavy (even back in the 80's), and chances are Mick and Sue would have been constantly bumping into tourists during their hiking trip. Especially in the kakadu.

Gavin Jackson

Correction: Australia is one of the largest continents in the world. The outback is one of the most treacherous environments to go 'walkabout' without someone who knows the place. You could get lost very easily and if you do, your chances of survival is very thin. This wouldn't be true if it were bustling with tourist at every turn. The fact is, it is quite the opposite to what you have stated. Besides, this was "Mick's Place" a fictional land which would not be on the regular tourist route.

Corrected entry: When the guy in the bar calls Mick a "bloody croc poacher", Mick punches him in the face then turns round to Sue saying "Sorry about that, but I won't have anyone using bad language in front of a lady." However, Mick had just said "How would I know, shit for brains?" in front of Sue when the same guy asked where he could hunt crocodiles. Mick also says "You can live on it, but it tastes like shit" to Sue when she asks if he is going to have any goanna, yams, grubs or sugar ants.

Correction: Thats the whole joke. Mick doesn't like others using bad language in front of a lady, but seems to have no problem doing it himself. Even Sue seems to notice this flaw in Mick's Logic.

Gavin Jackson

Corrected entry: In the restaurant scene, Mick refers to someone else's plate and says 'I like the look of that one' and looks to his left. But Richard, on his right, looks to his right so that Mick can hit him with his right hand while Sue is looking away.

Correction: Exactly. Mick points out someone in front of him and to his left. Sue and Richard therefore have to turn right to see the person, because the "fat sheila" is behind them and to their right.

Corrected entry: In the scene when Mick Dundee arrives in New York, Sue is shown meeting her boyfriend and says she was separated from Mick in customs. Mick is shown to be leaving Australia on Qantas. Passengers entering the US always have to clear customs in their first port of entry, which for Qantas in 1986 was only Los Angeles.

Correction: In 1986 Qantas flew direct flights to Hong Kong, hugely popular with overseas travellers because of the tax-free shopping. After a one day stopover, flights on any airline you chose to any destination in the world were possible. Flights out of Australia were notoriously expensive in those days and a stopover of this nature could save a lot of money.

Corrected entry: Mick Dundee is supposed to be an master bushman with a lifetime's experience as a hunter - yet he plays a joke on a woman by firing a .308 bullet into the shingle on the ground at her feet. The ricochet from a .308 bullet fired from a metre away could go anywhere, and could easily kill her - or him. Anyone with his experience with guns would know that.

Correction: Actually, it was Sue that shoots at the shingle at Dundee's feet because he tells her, "That's the dangerous end.", and after she shoots the gun, she replies, "So it is.".

Corrected entry: How does Sue get through the barrier on the underground when she's looking for Mick - we are never shown her putting a ticket through and she certainly doesn't seem to have time to do it.

David Mercier

Correction: The scene only shows her going through the turnstile, which doesn't happen until after you put the ticket (or, at that time, probably a token) through the machine. Could have taken ten minutes for all we know.

Corrected entry: When the trio drives out to the location where Mick was attacked, they encounter a water buffalo in the middle of the track. Mick honks the horn and yells to get it to move, then gets out of the truck and hypnotizes the beast. Where does it fall over and go to sleep? Right there in the middle of the track. It strikes me that it would be much more difficult to move a sleeping buffalo than one already on its feet.

Correction: It's much easier to drive around a sleeping buffalo than a conscious one. If he were to drive towards the conscious beast, it may think it's being threatened and defend itself. Obviously, Mick does not want the beast to attack the car. Putting it to sleep and driving around it makes more sense.

Mistakes

This film contains the most stupid scene ever filmed. Linda Koslowski dips her canteen in a creek and a full grown crocodile grabs it and tries to drag her into the water - and she holds it off in a tug of war until our hero Mick arrives and kills it. Nonsense. A slightly built woman has a much chance of holding her own against a 1200kg croc as I have of flying to the moon. She'd be croc food before he even heard the splash - a croc that big could take a 1000kg buffalo without pausing for breath, never mind a small woman.
