This is the first, and best, of the tales about the Australian outback's living legend, who can wrestle crocodiles with his bare hands and subdue ladies with his naked charisma. Paul Hogan took his lager-commercial he-man into the big time with this New York-set "fish-out-of-water" tale, and the result is as agreeable as if it were Tarzan himself coping in the concrete jungle. Director Peter Faiman's languid pace gives us time to appreciate this particular Wizard from Oz as he survives sophisticates' taunts and outwits the Big Apple's street villains. It's a pity Hogan couldn't keep the momentum going for later movies, but for this, at least, he created a totally likeable hero.


A New York reporter searches the Australian Outback for a maverick hunter with a legendary reputation, and invites the adventurer back to America. But the die-hard Aussie needs to draw on all his survival skills to adjust to life in the urban jungle. Comedy adventure, written by and starring Paul Hogan, with Linda Kozlowski, John Meillon and Mark Blum.
