Product Description

Amazon.ca

Arnold Schwarzenegger made a successful transition to comedy with this 1990 box-office hit directed by Ivan Reitman. Arnold plays an undercover cop whose attempt to locate a little boy and his mother leads him to a small-town kindergarten class, where he poses as a teacher while continuing his investigation. He's also trying to catch a vicious drug dealer (Richard Tyson), whose ex-wife and son are the pair that Arnold's trying to rescue from impending danger. The scenes featuring Arnold and a classroom full of kindergartners are a real hoot, and Pamela Reed offers enjoyable support as Schwarzenegger's police partner, while Penelope Ann Miller (as another teacher) provides a low-key romantic interest and Carroll Baker steals her scenes as the villain's domineering mother. These familiar elements combine to make this a surprisingly lively and entertaining comedy-thriller, but parents are advised to heed the PG-13 rating: there are a lot of funny kids in the movie, but it's still a police thriller, with a violent climax that's not suitable for young viewers. --Jeff Shannon

Kindergarten Cop [1990] [Blu-ray + DIGITAL HD with UltraViolet] [US Import] Arnold Schwarzenegger stars in the unforgettable action-comedy Kindergarten Cop from director Ivan Reitman (‘Ghostbusters’ and ‘Twins’). Detective John Kimble [Arnold Schwarzenegger] is a veteran of the mean streets of Los Angeles, ready and able to tackle anything. In order to trap an elusive criminal, he is forced to face his most challenging assignment yet: going undercover as a kindergarten teacher. Now facing 23 screaming kids, he has to keep them under control without blowing his top and his cover. Once he gains the respect of his class, as well as the affections of a beautiful teacher, Detective Kimble must prepare for a final confrontation with his prey.

Andrew’s Blu-ray Review – ‘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.

One might not think this movie would have ever worked. 1990 was a pretty good year for Arnold with Total Recall and one might not have put him in this movie. It paired him back up with Twins director Ivan Reitman and I don't think mainstream America could see Arnold in this film.
John Kimble(Schwarzenegger) is a detective that loves his job. He is trying to bring down a drug lord Crisp(Tyson). To do that he must find Crisp's ex-wife and child. They have the evidence he needs to do that, but nobody is quite sure where they are. They are found though and they are living in the small town of Asotria, Oregon. Kimble then teams up with his new partner Phoebe(Reed) to go there and find them.
They go to Oregon and have arrangements made for Phoebe to go undercover at the local school. They know Crisps kid would be five and should be in kindergarten. There is only one kindergarten class so he has to be there. After Phoebe gets sick somebody has to fill in and Kimble steps up. He'll take her place and pretend to be a kindergarten teacher.
The plan quickly backfires in his place. He barely makes it through his first day. If it werent' for another teacher Joyce(Miller) he wouldn't have made it. I'm not going to reveal anymore of the plot because it spoils the movie and this really is a fun movie.
Arnold Schwarzenegger is the man in the movie. You have to love watching him interact with the kids in the movie. He is so much bigger than all of them, most of them are only up past his knees. You get to see a softer side of Arnold and at this point this was only the second family oriented movie he had made other than Twins. A lot of people didn't think he could interact with the kids and he shines.
The kids are fantastic in the movie.

I had never been an Arnold Schwartzenegger fan in the old days of Conan and The Terminator, but I've seen several of his comedy films, and I have to say he has a wonderful sense of the humorous and a charming way with children. I'd purchased the video of Kindergarten Cop years ago, but when I got my DVD, I gave most of my video collection to the Bone Marrow Transplant wards--because of their immunosupressed status, these patients are sort of a captive audience for quite a while. I decided to get a new copy for my DVD. It's a fun, feel good kind of film. Most of my family have been teachers, so I know about the headaches that teachers experience educating the nation's children. (Who'd have the courage to spend an entire day in a closed room with ones own children, let alone a small room filled with 25-35 of them! Teachers not only deserve our respect, they deserve combat pay!) As Detective John Kimble, Arnold is confronted with some 15 of the most adorable imps from whose mouths spring some of the most extraordinary things. He suffers the usual "new teacher" syndrome: the kids push him to the limits to see how far they get. There's really nothing so funny as the "helpless male" dealing with a bunch of kids. Hulk Hogan did the bit beautifully too, in a similar film, but Schwartzenegger is a genius at it. When his partner insists he leave his gun, but changes her mind because she thinks he'll "be eaten alive," it brings to mind my own antics in the classroom when confronted with the obvious neophyte! When Kimble punches out the abusive father of one of his pupils, I can almost hear real teachers with similar real battered children cheering him on. They say that the villains make the film, and Richard Tyson does a superb job, as does Carroll Baker as his mother.Read more ›
