Starring as a fictionalised version of himself, The Very Excellent Mr. Dundee sees Paul Hogan enjoying a quiet life and all the perks of retirement in Brentwood, California, but he can’t seem to stay out of the headlines. When his granddaughter Lucy (Charlotte Stent) finds out he’s been offered a knighthood for services to comedy and tells all her friends, Paul reluctantly accepts the offer and has six weeks to stay out of trouble before the ceremony. But wherever Paul goes, trouble follows, and we see Paul’s reputation hilariously put through the ringer the closer we get to his important meeting with his biggest Royal fan.
It’s the United Nations of legendary comedians with John Cleese (Monty Python, A Fish Called Wanda) and Chevy Chase (National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, Fletch) joining Paul Hogan alongside the beloved Olivia Newton-John (Grease). Shane joins the cast with other Aussie favourites Julia Morris and Rachael Carpani, as well as comedy stars including Jim Jefferies (The Jim Jefferies Show), Reggie VelJohnson (Die Hard) and Wayne Knight (Seinfeld, Jurassic Park).
