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

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.

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

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

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.

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

Kindergarten Cop is made up out of parts that shouldn't fit, but somehow they do, making a slick entertainment out of the improbable, the impossible, and Arnold Schwarzenegger.
