  1. The no-sweat clunkiness of the detective plot becomes kind of charming.
  2. He (Hogan) and the other backers of the movie are betting that Dundee has been gone long enough to make him seem fresh, or -- like that old uncle -- at least welcome.
  3. 63
    The film is surprisingly easy to sit through, digest and even enjoy. Why? A lot has to do with Hogan's well-documented charisma as a performer.
  4. 60
    Wincer keeps the insubstantial story moving and the comedy light.
  5. 60
    The running joke about coffee enemas will date this innocuous, crowd-pleasing adventure comedy.
  6. 50
    Isn't a total crock.
  7. 50
    It may not be brilliant, but who would you rather your kids took as a role model: Crocodile Dundee, David Spade or Tom Green?
  8. The punchlines are as tired as Hogan looks.
  9. 40
    Nostalgia and comedy are run through a food processor until they become a flavorless paste.
  10. There's something good-natured, even sweet about this well-meaning affair.
  11. 40
    Despite the lack of zing in Hogan's frequently self-deprecating zingers, director Simon Wincer repeatedly lets scenes dribble on until an awkward silence engulfs everyone onscreen.
  12. It would be hard to imagine a less exciting movie. Still, inoffensiveness can sometimes lead to success, at least initially, for a family film.

    Hogan's rough-and-ready charm remains intact, but it's not enough to salvage this instantly forgettable movie.

    Amiable rather than genuinely funny.

    When movies have degraded to the point that Tyson is acting more than Quentin Tarantino is directing, maybe it is time for an industry shutdown, strike-induced or otherwise.
  16. A rube's-eye view of Hollywood, but the rube is weary, and those around him seem to be suffering from terminal torpor.
  17. 30
    Hogan returns with what feels like a feature-length vanity project.
  18. This latest, utterly gratuitous chapter in the saga of the wisecracking reptile hunter will add nothing to the ever-dimming reputation of the Subaru pitchman.

    A sequel whose time has come - and gone.
  20. 25
    The lackadaisical pace of CD3 is a disappointing surprise.
  21. 20
    Where there was a modicum of charm to Mick Dundee's earliest exploits in New York City, the joke has withered as markedly as Hogan's face.
