Trivia

The film is the fifth most watched film to be broadcast on British television when it was shown on BBC1 on December 25, 1989. It attracted 21.75 million viewers. It is also the most watched film to ever be shown on the BBC, as the four films with the most viewership - Live and Let Die (1973), Jaws (1975), The Spy Who Loved Me (1977) and Diamonds Are Forever (1971) - were shown on ITV.

Goofs

When Gus hits the pimp and his thugs with the limo, the windshield is clearly shattered in the aftermath. The next morning we see Gus re-attaching the TV antenna to the limo, but the windshield is unscathed. It is very unlikely that the limo windshield could have been replaced so quickly (even before the TV antenna was replaced) and the scene showing Gus re-attaching the TV antenna is clearly meant to imply to the audience the limo is the same one involved in the previous night's altercation.

Winning Formula Made This A Big Hit
2 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When you mix good comedy with action and a very likable leading character you get a hit movie. I never met anyone who didn't like this film, although there are always detractors to any movie and no movie is perfect, either.

However, this was an extremely entertaining that made an international star out of Australian Paul Hogan. Two sequels followed this movie. They were decent but could not measure up to this effort.

Not only was this a big success for Hogan and everyone else connected with it, but I believe he got a wife out of this wife, going on to marry his co-star Linda Kozlowski.

As someone pointed out, Hogan, as crocodile man "Mick Dundee" made the rest of the world aware of a number of Aussie phrases. Few men played as manly as likeabe and charismatic a hero in the 1980s as Hogan and "Mick."

Twenty years later, this is still a fun movie to watch now and then.
