"Lolls back in his chair."
The "lol" here is not as in "lol omg wtf pwned", etc. It's the word "loll". Definitions here and here. It makes sense for someone to "loll back in his chair"; it is impossible for someone to "laugh back in his chair". -Joshuapaquin 20:59, 15 December 2006 (UTC)
- I've never heard of the term before, so I assumed it just someone writing a bit badly. I would prefer a more common synonym, but whatever's fine. - Zero1328 Talk? 06:01, 16 December 2006 (UTC)
Fair use rationale for Image:CrocodileDundee.jpg
Image:CrocodileDundee.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.
Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.
If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 23:41, 2 June 2007 (UTC)
"There's a little of him in all of us." What's that supposed to mean?
This cracked me up:
From the plot summary: "Gus intervenes by taking a crescent-shaped, metallic decoration from the limousine and using it as a boomerang".
That "decoration" was the TV antenna. Luxury cars with TVs in them often had antennas like that, meant to be aerodynamic. They have since found ways to make better internal antennas. Calling it a "decoration" was cute, though. Reminds me of archaeologists, upon finding an artifact they don't know the purpose of, declare it "a ritual object."
can we please have a soruce that says Australians are upset about the popularity the movie has brought to Aust because we all live in cities? thats bullshit imo —Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 11:15, 17 January 2008 (UTC)
What happened to the quote?
What happened to the lines that go something like, You call that a knife? Now that's a knife! -- It's one the movie is best known for, and I've had reason to link to it sometimes but the quote isn't there now. Julia Rossi (talk) 22:34, 6 April 2008 (UTC)
Original Dundee ???
- It's called a bullroarer. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bullroarer_(music) Halmyre (talk) 09:45, 29 June 2009 (UTC)
The stars of the film, Paul Hogan and Linda Kozlowski, married in real life, after meeting during the film. Surely that merits mention here?
"Backing" the subway station crowd
The first time I saw Crocodile Dundee I assumed that the scene of Mick walking across the crowd was meant to parallel what an Australian Kelpie does with sheep. It's called "backing the sheep". Have a look here. (There's a pic on the Australian Kelpie page too.) Trouble is, that page is the only other place I've seen such a possible connection mentioned. Does anyone else reckon that parallel was intended? HiLo48 (talk) 06:39, 5 March 2013 (UTC)
