Reversed Crocodile Dundee
12 October 2001 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

City dweller meats countryside and encounters a lot of trouble. Naturally he has to gain respect and to prove that he's worthy, too. The humor is similar to the one of the Trinity series and is never truly violent. No one will be killed or injured. The film was shot in the beautiful environment of the Plitvice lakes in Croatia and reminded me of the days I spent there.

6 / 10.
