8. Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles (Rated 4.8/10 on IMDb)

When I first left for Los Angeles in 2013, “Crocodile Dundee” was one of the first movies I decided to watch. I wasn’t sure why, but some part of me was curious how a stereotypical Australian would adapt to the American lifestyle. “Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles” is pretty much about exactly what the title states – an Aussie bushman tries to adapt to the Los Angeles lifestyle.

9. A Cinderella Story 2004 (Rated 5.8/10 on IMDb)

A Cinderella Story is a modernised version of the famous Cinderella tale.

Who could play Walt Disney better than Tom Hanks? I really couldn’t think of a better match. This film is about the true story of Walt Disney’s efforts to make the book “Marry Poppins” into a film. Set in a later time in California, his surprising backstory brings up unique discoveries in the “Mary Poppins” film we all know and love.
