The Very Excellent Mr. Dundee

Crocodile Dundee remains Australia's highest grossing film ever (locally and internationally). Here, we follow star Paul Hogan - playing a fictional version of himself - set to receive a knighthood for services to comedy. But, as the ceremony draws close, his name and reputation come under question. Features cameos from Chevy Chase, John Cleese, Olivia Newton-John and Jim Jefferies.

There’s a tension here between sending up Hoges and making fun of his position as a washed up celebrity (which is where much of the film’s humour comes from) and treating its subject with the respect he ostensibly deserves, which undercuts that same humour. This is not Bojack Crocman.

Hogan tries to remain unruffled, but appears bemused and somewhat confused as his world crumbles. That might be what Paul Hogan is really like but he plays himself rather badly here, more self-aware than self-confident.
