** The scene where Mick walks around the streets of New York with that Bowie knife hanging on his hip not even getting a second look. In today's climate the cops would be all over him before he made it a city block.

* {{Sequelitis}}: The first movie was a surprise hit and grossed over $175 million in American theaters in 1986 (back when movie ticket prices were barely half of what they are now). While some people think that it hasn't aged well, most everyone agrees that it is superior to the 1988 sequel ''Crocodile Dundee II'', which did only about half the business of its predecessor. Most people don't even know that there's a 3rd movie in the series. From a story perspective, the first film was about a big fish in a small pond being dumped into the ocean. The second was about said fish [[{{Metaphorgotten}} fighting columbian druglords]]. The third movie.... was not very popular, to put it mildly, even though it's all about Mick acting like "Crocodile" Dundee.

** Which makes her insulting of drug dealers in the next movie kind of strange.

* BestKnownForTheFanservice: At the time the first film was released, the scene where Sue is seen wearing a one-piece thong swimsuit caused a minor controversy due to such skimpy swimwear being uncommon in 1986. But by today's standards the scene is pretty tame.

* DudeNotFunny: In ''Crocodile Dundee II'', our hero sees a despondent man on a high building ledge about to jump. He's heartbroken, and Dundee consoles him about his lost love - until he says "And then he left me!" At which point a disgusted Dundee sharply pulls back and leaves him to jump...
** To be accurate, Mick does pull back, looks at the jumper in surprise, loses his balance and himself almost falls down. The "leaves him to jump" bit simply doesn't happen, though: the jumper-to-be is the one to declare "screw that" and leave, while Mick is busy holding the ledge for dear life.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: The poaching accusations Mick faces and anything resembling intricacy of character are summarily done away with as soon as he arrives in NYC. What makes it particularly jarring is that it pretty much rendered ''an entire act'' moot.
