Excerpt: Arnold Schwarzenegger is swarmed by kids who steal his starring role in this hokey and colorful escapade which finds the Austrian bodybuilder undercover as a kindergarten teacher. Conceptually, it seems too unbelievable for fake movie trailers on a sketch comedy program. In execution, Kindergarten Cop is stupidly successful. It must be Ivan Reitman, fresh off his stint behind the camera in Ghostbusters II , directing Schwarzenegger to play up as often as he’s down.
Excerpt: “It’s not a tum-ah!” The 1990’s ushered in a new era for Arnold Schwarzenegger. The 80’s were very good to him and after establishing himself as one of the premiere action stars of said decade, it was time for a change. Arnold was the face of films like Red Sonja , Conan the Barbarian , The Terminator and Commando , but with Ivan Reitman’s Kindergarten Cop , he showed a softer and gentler side.
