this was an old overplayed movie from premium cable
I remember watching this movie and thinking it's kind of a cheap knockoff of Crocodile Dundee. And they played it quite frequently back in the day, not so much now.
Funny enough, thinking about it now, probably the most recognizable people in this movie are: John Pinette, Hugo Weaving and Kathleen Freeman.
Plus the actor playing the main character isn't relatively well known, even now I still have no idea who he is and never heard of him since.
