The summary below contains spoilers.
Crocodile Dundee II (1988)Crocodile Dundee II begins a year after the events of the first film. We find Mick Dundee and Sue Charlton living happily ever after in New York City. While Mick is still doing wacky Outback things in Midtown Manhattan like blast fishing, Sue’s busy writing about his exploits.

Even thought she’s turned him into a little local hero, he winds up working for a mild-mannered stationery salesman named Leroy Brown. Leroy is usually up to no good as he’s busy trying to live up to his self-proclaimed tough street guy image.

Meanwhile in the jungles of Columbia, Sue’s ex-husband Bob works for the DEA where he takes some photos of Luis Rico, the local drug cartel leader, murdering an unknown person. When one of the Rico’s lookouts spots Bob, he winds up dead too, but not before sending Sue the photographs. Rico and his brother Miguel head to New York City to get those photos.

Once there, the brothers track Sue down and kidnap her. Mick turns to Leroy for help, and he in turn gets in touch with a local street gang. They create a distraction which attracts the cartel’s guards; sending them on a wild goose chase. While this is going on, Mick sneaks in, and rescues Sue.

The cops arrest Rico, but he quickly escapes. He then flubs a chance to kill Sue outright, but Mick has seen enough. He decides to escape with her to Australia to fight the gang on his turf.

We head to Walkabout Creek, where Mick’s friends give him a warm welcome. The two love birds head out to a tiny parcel of land Mick owns named Belonga Mick. Once there, Sue realizes that Mick’s land is nearly twice the size of New York State, and it includes a lovely gold mine for today’s modern gold digger.

Rico and his boys arrive in Australia where they immediately hire some local hoodlums to take Sue out. However, when their Aboriginal tracker finds out they are looking for Mick, he abandons them.

Now getting desperate, Rico takes Mick’s old pal, Walter, hostage. Mick “saves” him by purposely flubbing an attempt on his life. Walter then uses that failure to convince the gang that Mick couldn’t succeed because he’s the only person suitable to guide them through the Outback. They fall for the lie, and make Walter their replacement tracker.

Walter has some fun at their expense when he sends the gang down a false trail through the territory. Mick takes this time to gather some Aboriginal friends, and eliminate his enemies out one by one until we get down to Mick, Rico, and Miguel.

Rico is over it by now. So he sets a bushfire to push Mick into a corner, but Mick uses it to his advantage, and he captures Rico. He then swaps clothes with him to fool Miguel.

Unfortunately, Walter and Sue spot Mick in disguise, and don’t realize it’s him. Walter shoots Mick, but it tis just a scratch. Rico takes this opportunity to flee, but Miguel, thinking it’s actually Mick, shoots him.

Rico then trips and falls to his death. Sue spots Miguel, and shoots and kills him. She reunites with Mick reunite, and when he asks her if she’s ready to go home, she replies “I am home.”
