"Crocodile" Dundee (1986)
What happens: A newspaper writer, Sue (Linda Kozlowski), falls in love with her subject, Australian bushman Mick "Crocodile" Dundee (Paul Hogan), and brings him back to New York City—ostensibly to work on her story. There, he has trouble adjusting to City life and must contend with an editor who competes for Sue's affection.
Notable spots: Mick and Sue take in the New York City skyline from Top of the Rock, and Mick has an altercation at Vazac's Horseshoe Bar (below), a dive in the East Village.
Pro tip: Above, "Crocodile" is hanging out on Fifth Avenue between 52nd and 53rd Streets. Go visit, but please don't climb the street signs.
