Directed by Steve Rogers, Dundee – The Son of a Legend Returns Home is a follow up to to the 1980s Crocodile Dundee movies. In this story Crocodile Dundee (Paul Hogan) is missing  in the Outback and the only person who might be able to find him is the loudmouthed American son (Danny McBride) that no-one knew he had.

Sequels are tough, especially when they’re for a movie that one’s younger self enjoyed watching quite a bit. Chances are this one may not be great, but I’ll give it a chance because I’ve often enjoyed the characters played by Mr. McBride. Particularly in Pineapple Express (2018) – one of the greatest comedy films of all time.

UPDATE: Lies! Dundee – The Son Of A Legend Returns Home is actually a short film / advertisement by Tourism Australia. I was indeed fooled. It’s  not a real movie after all. At least not in the way I expected.

I have to say that this news is probably for the best. Particularly since after seeing the full trailer, I’d lost hope that it might be a good movie anyway. The new and official category  on IMDb is ‘short film’ and ‘comedy.’ The new title on IMDb has also been updated to ‘TOURISM AUSTRALIA – DUNDEE – The Son of a Legend Returns Home (2018).

As the new trailer played, I soon realised that something may be up when, near enough every Australian actor I know to be working today appears to be a cast member. Well,  that’s everyone except Toni Collette, Geoffrey Rush, Hugo Weaving,  Kylie Minogue, Jackie Weaver, Sharlto Copley, etc., etc.

Dundee – The Son of a Legend Returns Home Release Dates: June 1st, 2018 (US)..

Happy Short Film / Ad Loving (…?)

  1. I was truly excited reading this, but that trailer makes me wanna puke. It looks like self loathing satire. A complete mockery of Crocodile Dundee! Dag, now I’m all mad again… Why can’t they make a respectable follow up? Crocodile Dundee wouldn’t have tolerated such an idiot for a son…

    1. 😂! You poor thing! 😂😂😂
      Well, what’s in some way good news is that this is only a teaser trailer. The other good news is that maybe this ‘intolerable son’ will be part of the joke; Crocodile Dundee not being able to stand his American son. Maybe he’ll even teach his son the true Crocodile Dundee way. There may be some hope yet, Steve. It could be too early to despair. 😁

      1. I had not seen that. What a relief. I have no problems with them hawking their tourism, but that film would not be the way to do it! As for me, they have too many #1 entries on the world’s most deadly creatures for my tastes…

      2. Relief is indeed the right word. 😊 Apparently the Crocodile Dundee movies are still the most successful films to come out of Australia. So I guess it’s no surprise it’s been used to promote the country.

        I was in Sydney for nearly a month and the worst I saw was a cockroach, thank goodness! 😳😌
