Plot

Mick Dundee is living in the Australian Outback with Sue Charlton and their young son Mikey. Crocodile hunting has been made illegal; therefore Mick has been reduced to wrestling the animals for the entertainment of tourists, with his rival in the business being another Outback survivalist named Jacko. When an opportunity comes for Sue to become Los Angeles bureau chief of a newspaper owned by her father, Mick and family cross the Pacific to California. Paul Hogan starring as Crocodile Dundee Michael J Crocodile Dundee is the lead character in the Crocodile Dundee film series, consisisting of Crocodile Dundee, Crocodile Dundee II and Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles. He is a Crocodile hunter, hench his nickname. ... For other uses, see Crocodile (disambiguation). ... For other uses, see Animal (disambiguation). ...

There, Mick and his son's encounters with the locals cause more than a few cross-cultural mishaps, including a massive traffic jam on the freeway, caused when the Dundees attempt an animal rescue of a skunk (which they take for an ood-looking cat). Mick becomes an amateur sleuth helping to probe the mysterious death of his wife's predecessor at the newspaper, while Mikey attends a local school, where he quickly impresses his classmates and teacher.

As it turns out, a film studio the dead reporter had been investigating is about to make a sequel to the action movie Lethal Agent, which is strange considering that the first attempts were disastrous commercial failures. Mick becomes suspicious when several paintings from Eastern Europe are brought onto the set; although at first he suspects drug smuggling (with the drugs hidden in the frames), the pictures themselves are revealed to be missing art from a museum in former Yugoslavia. Attempting to secure one of the paintings as evidence, Mick, Sue, and Jacko run afoul with the studio director and his thugs. Using the studio's props and two lions used in the filmings to defeat the gangsters, Mick and Sue solve the case and return to Australia, where they are officially married.

Filmtracks: Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles (Basil Poledouris) (809 words)
It is difficult not to be acquainted with the Crocodile Dundee franchise, especially with Paul Hogan in so many commercials for substandard vehicles (even in his advancing years), so it should come as no surprise that the soundtrack is not to be taken with much seriousness.
For the scoring of Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles, Poledouris was given a sum of money just large enough to incorporate fifteen or so minutes of combined orchestral performances in Seattle, and the rest of the material was up to him and his fellow producers to piece together back at his studios in Venice.
Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles is not the worst case of a slapstick score, but it is still difficult to enjoy.
