Buy it... only if you feel a need to purchase the last of Basil Poledouris' new commercial albums released before cancer restricted his mainstream career and ultimately led to his death five years later.

Avoid it... if you expect either Peter Best's material from the previous two films or a compelling merging of jungle percussion with American rock tones.

Poledouris
Poledouris
Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles: (Basil Poledouris) It's just so pathetic to see a perfectly good concept dragged through the mud for absolutely no acceptable reason whatsoever. While the 1988 sequel to 1986's Crocodile Dundee was at least understandable in terms of revisiting a funny character for one last blast, Paramount decided to haul Paul Hogan (who had claimed he would never do a third film in this franchise) out for a wretchedly awful 2001 follow-up. With the original two films seeming like they belonged to another generation, perhaps there was enough nostalgia left in the tank to justify a really good script for Hogan to wrestle with. But Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles is downright horrible, failing to provide any compelling connections to the previous film and trying far too hard to resurrect laughs from previous situations in which Hogan was out of place. It was difficult not to be acquainted with the cute legacy of the Crocodile Dundee franchise even that far removed from its origins, especially with Hogan doing so many commercials for substandard vehicles (even in his advancing years), so it should have come as no surprise that the soundtrack for the third entry was not to be taken seriously. The first two films in the series were provided catchy scores by Peter Best, and though neither effort was particularly good, some critics complained about not hearing his music in Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles. Composer Basil Poledouris' involvement with the film instead surely began with his relationship with director Simon Wincer, with whom he had collaborated on Lonesome Dove (which some still consider one of his best works). No doubt, Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles offered more than just a small paycheck for Poledouris, likely attributable to a "sounds like fun" motivation as well. After all, how many composers get the opportunity to score an entry in such a previously intelligent and illustrious film franchise? Unfortunately, this project arguably represented the end of the increasingly ill composer's career. Poledouris' assignments of the previous three years had all been of a smaller scale, avoiding the typical blockbuster assignments that the veteran composer was best known for.
