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.
In Kindergarten Cop, he plays off the Schwarzenegger image more gleefully and successfully than ever before.
[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.
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.
[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.
The Terminator meets Mother Goose.
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.
With a heart of purest mush, Kindergarten Cop still manages to be generally entertaining.
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.
Do I dare to say, Schwarzenegger's best acting work.
Ten reasons why I love Kindergarten Cop:
1. The way this movie introduces John Kimble is one of the best Arnold introductions ever!
2. Thug: "Who are you?" Arnold: "I'm the party pooper." *shotgun blast*
3. "It's not a tumor!"
4. "We're going to play a game. It's called 'Who Is Your Daddy, And What Does He Do?"
5. "Shuuuuuut uuuuuuuuuppp!"
6. "Take the toy back to the carpet. Take it back!"
7. "THERE IS NO BATHROOM!"
8. "My name is John Kimble. And I like my car." *cocks shotgun*
9. Penelope Ann Miller is gorgeous and oddly enough, she shares great chemistry with Arnold.
10. This is just a nice, sweet movie with a lot of heart....and Arnold kicking ass. I don't see what's not to like.
I have a soft spot for Arnold movies. I admit it. I love them, despite how bad they are. I'm impervious to that reality. In other words, you could give me one hundred reasons why he's the worst actor in the world and why Kindergarten Cop sucks, and it won't change my mind one bit. Nobody entertains me the way Arnold does.
One of Arnolds funniest films of all time
Fell in love with Penelope Ann Miller on this movie. One of Arnolds best comedy movies.
