Kindergarten Cop Reviews

Felix Vasquez Jr.
Cinema Crazed

[Schwarzenneger's] transformation in to kids film star is nearly seamless, as he's able to connect with his primarily younger cast surprisingly well, and garners a strong chemistry with just about everyone in the film.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Actually fairly entertaining, buoyed by Schwarzenegger's self-deprecating charm and easy chemistry with his capable costar, Pamela Reed, and the hammiest bunch of tykes ever assembled for a movie.

A mish-mash of violence, psycho-drama and lukewarm kiddie comedy.

With a heart of purest mush, Kindergarten Cop still manages to be generally entertaining.

If Reitman's film gets closer than most to covering the bases, there remain huge gaps in plausibility and a romantic subplot any ten-year-old could tell you is just plain icky.

Surrounding Arnold with the giddy kiddies is a shameless, gimmicky stunt. But what the heck...Reitman's actioner still works as a zesty vehicle for The Muscled One.

Ahnold's best foray into comedy territory ... for whatever that's worth.

Ah-nold and an adorable ferret... a daffy but dandy duo.

In Kindergarten Cop, he plays off the Schwarzenegger image more gleefully and successfully than ever before.

Watching the kids subdue Ah-Nuld is funny, but much of the film is wildly inconsistent.

A nice, funny, lightweight, non-filling, entertaining film, perfect for the holiday season.

Arnold tries to be funny, but throws punches better than delivering punch lines.

Fans of Schwarzenegger's more violent pictures will probably be put off by the film's inherent case of the 'cutes.' Parents will no doubt be very put off by the violence and dark themes.

[Director Reitman's] got a way with kids, and found a remarkable ensemble of 30 antic urchins to work with, cashing in on kindergarten's comic terrain and the blurted brutal honesty of the kids.

hough Schwarzenegger remains to acting what ham hocks are to a cheese course, he manages against all odds to be appealing as the Austrian au pair. Think of it as To Conan With Love.
