'The cultural knowledges which a given film-viewing community brings to a given text will clearly affect both the readings made of it as well as its popularity,' writes Stephen Crofts in the introduction to this paper. using Crocodile Dundee as a case study, primarily because of its extraordinary international success, Crofts works hypothesises that 'a properly constructed comparison of two countries' reviews of the same film may yield significant conclusions about national cultural differences, and in particular about foreign constructions of the film's country of origin.'
