A Note Regarding Spoilers

The following FAQ entries may contain spoilers. Only the biggest ones (if any) will be covered with spoiler tags. Spoiler tags have been used sparingly in order to make the page more readable.

For detailed information about the amounts and types of (a) sex and nudity, (b) violence and gore, (c) profanity, (d) alcohol, drugs, and smoking, and (e) frightening and intense scenes in this movie, consult the IMDb Parents Guide for this movie. The Parents Guide for Crocodile Dundee II can be found here.

Sue Charlton (Linda Kozlowski) is kidnapped by Luis Rico (Hechter Ubarry), the leader of a Colombian drug cartel. In his attempts to free her, Mick 'Crocodile' Dundee (Paul Hogan) and Sue end up back in Walkabout Creek, Australia. Unfortunately, the gangsters discover their whereabouts and pursue them through the outback, forcing Walter Reilly (John Meillon) to serve as their guide.

No. Crocodile Dundee II is a sequel to Crocodile Dundee (1986). However, the Dundee character is based on the true life experiences of Australian Rodney Ansell [1953-1999], who became stranded in the remote Northern Territory in 1977 and managed to survive alone (except for his two dogs) for two months before he was eventually rescued by a group of traveling bushmen. The screenplay for Crocodile Dundee II was written by Paul Hogan and his son Brett Hogan. Crocodile Dundee II was followed by Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles (2001).

No specific amount of time was mentioned, but it has been long enough for Mick and Sue to set up housekeeping in New York and for Mick to become addicted to watching 'Days of Our Lives', a daytime soap on the telly. A good guess would be anywhere from a few months to one year.

Not 'necessary' but certainly advisable. Crocodile Dundee explains much that would go over a viewer's head if Crocodile Dundee II is watched first, e.g., how Mick and Sue met, why Mick is called 'Crocodile', Mick's relationship with Walt and with the aborigines, and how Mick came to New York. There are also numerous puns and references that are taken from the first movie and used in the second movie without explanation, so they won't provide the intended comedic value without having seen the first movie.

About half, with the first half being set in New York and the last half in Australia.

Yes. The Australian scenes were mostly shot in Australia's Northwest Territory.

The island continent of Australia is a land mass roughly the size of the continental United States. Surrounded by the Indian and Pacific Oceans, Australia's ~22,000,000 inhabitants mostly live along the coast, particularly the southeastern coast that comprises the states of New South Wales and Victoria. The Northern Territory, as its name implies, comprises the vast northern territory in what could roughly be described as the "midwest" of Australia. Most of the Northern Territory, with the exception of the far northern tropical area, is made up of grasslands and a large portion of the Outback Desert. It is sparsely populated, with the majority of its inhabitants living along a highway that connects Darwin with Alice Springs.

Sue's ex-husband Bob Tanner (Dennis Boutsikaris) sent her a letter and some photographs he took, while working for the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) in Colombia, of Rico executing an unknown man. At first, Rico just wants the photographs back from Sue, but after Mick rescues her and they turn the photographs over to the police, it is pointed out that the photographs and Sue's testimony will be enough to put Rico away for keeps. Rico knows this, too, so he wants Sue (as well as Mick) dead.

The smaller of the two Japanese men thought Mick was actor Clint Eastwood.

The actual rat is not revealed. However, there would be airline ticket records, passport records, etc., of Mick and Sue's trip to Australia, not mention those double agents who may have been in the DEA office. Any number of those people handling those records could have provided information to Rico for 'double the price.'

The tool Mick used is called a bullroarer, an ancient musical instrument used in ceremonial rituals. As the sound carries for a long distance, it can also be used (as Mick did) as a means of calling to others. The sound comes from the grooves in the wood reacting with the motion/and or the wind.

How does the movie end?

Walt leads Rico and his brother Miguel (Juan Fernández) to Jaba Point, as directed by Mick. While crossing a river, Walt is pulled under by a crocodile that turns out to be Mick wearing a croc's skin. Walt joins Sue and the aborigines who are guarding the rest of Rico's party, having been captured and tied up by Mick, while he continues on to catch the Rico brothers. Concerned that Mick is taking this as a big game, Sue and Walt go looking for him. Meanwhile, Rico has decided to take matters into his own hands and sets the brush on fire. Through the smoke, Sue and Walt see Rico leading Mick at gunpoint. Walt shoots Rico, Miguel shoots Mick (who falls over a cliff), and Sue shoots Miguel. She runs to the cliff and sees Mick lying dead on the rocks below. As Sue and Walt gape in horror, Charlie (Ernie Dingo) walks up and says, 'If Mick wants his clothes back, he can climb down and get them his bloody self.' Suddenly, Mick walks up, wearing Rico's clothes. Charlie explains that they swapped clothes so Mick could flush out Miguel, a plan that was working until Walt shot Mick. Fortunately, it was Walt doing the shooting, so he didn't get a good hit. In the final scene, Mick asks Sue, after a lot of hugging and kissing, if she's ready to go home. 'I am home,' she replies.
