Comedian and Saturday Night Live alum, Colin Quinn appears in minor role early in his career. He later recounted through his comedy, that while working on the movie he took it upon himself to rewrite the script to give himself a larger role in the film as Dundee's sidekick and presented to it unsolicited to the film's director and producers. With very little experience in the entertainment and film industry he had no concept at the time why this would be seen as inappropriate. See more »
Mick has no fishing pole set up in his rowboat, so he could not have "gotten tired waiting for a bite" and then resorted to the dynamite. See more »
This Dundee likes to play games, huh, Miguel? Maybe we show him some good games when it gets light.

"Crocodile Dundee II" opened a short year-and-a-half after the first movie, when the original film became a blockbuster hit all over the world. Paul Hogan and Linda Kozlowski return for a second go round of adventures as Australian adventurer Mick Dundee and New York reporter Sue Charlton. This time the movie reverses the original by opening in New York and concluding in Australia. Interesting idea. However, "Crocodile Dundee II" isn't quite as good as the original. The main problem with this movie is that it isn't as funny as the first film. The second installment has a more serious tone to it, thanks in part to a plot involving drug lords presuing our heroes. The laughs seem to come in few and far between, which wasn't the case with the original. Still, there's lots to like here. Hogan is fine as he was in the first film, as is Kozlowski. There are funny moments in the film, and it has dangerous adventure that keeps the movie entertaining. A good movie, but not a great one.
