Mick 'Crocodile' Dundee runs an outback adventure business with his trusted friend and self-proclaimed mentor Walter Reilly. When he survives a crocodile attack, the news travels well beyond the Northern Territory, and soon afterwards a glamorous New York journalist, Sue Charlton, arrives to interview Mick. He invites her to come with him to the place where he was attacked. Along the way, she finds him more complex and more mysterious than she expects. When Sue herself is attacked by a croc, Mick saves her. This leads to an invitation for Mick to visit his first ever city: New York City. Mick finds the culture and life in New York City a lot different than his home. It not only expands his horizons but also tests his survival skills. Mick also finds himself falling in love with Sue.
