When Gus hits the pimp and his thugs with the limo, the windshield is clearly shattered in the aftermath. The next morning we see Gus re-attaching the TV antenna to the limo, but the windshield is unscathed. It is very unlikely that the limo windshield could have been replaced so quickly (even before the TV antenna was replaced) and the scene showing Gus re-attaching the TV antenna is clearly meant to imply to the audience the limo is the same one involved in the previous night's altercation.

The cinema (theatrical) version included a scene where Mick was in the kitchen at a party and saw a guy snorting cocaine. He takes it and puts it into a bowl of hot water, thinking that the guy has a cold or flu. This scene is missing in some TV and video editions. These editions also remove a scene where a girl smokes Dundee's roll up cigarette, mistaking it for a joint, and describes it as 'good shit'. See more »
Paul Hogan's original tailor-made 'fish out of water' flick became a massive hit in 1986 and still remains a warm, amusing and irresistibly enjoyable. In terms of plot, its simpler than simple - American reporter Linda Kozlowski is sent to Australia to investigate the legendary 'Crocodile' Dundee (Hogan) and ends up bringing the charming rogue back to the Big Apple. It's a winner in every sense from Hogan's wonderfully laid-back performance to his own screenplay, featuring an array of classic quips and moments. Peter Best's excellent musical score also deserves applause in helping to ensure that this film remains great, exciting and still novel entertainment almost two decades on.
