It was based on true life of Rodney Ansell. The film had a budget of under $10 million. They meant to make a commercial Australian film that America would like. Many people in the world liked the movie. It made the second most money of all movies in the US in 1986. It also was second in money made in the world in 1986.
There are two versions of the film: the Australian version, and the American/international version. The American version had much of the Australian slang replaced with more commonly understood words. It was also slightly shorter. There were two more movies: "Crocodile" Dundee II (1988) and Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles (2001).
