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

Format:Blu-ray
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Governator at his best May 14 2004
Format:DVD
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Police School May 12 2004
Format:VHS Tape
If you're determined to enjoy Arnold Schwarzenegger flailing around in a classroom full of (supposedly) kindergarten-age kids, then you will, regardless of the stupidities of the plot and the taking-the-law-into-your-own-hands violence that's a bad lesson for kids or adults who watch this movie.
The only remotely funny scene in this "comedy/drama" is stolen from Woody Allen's Annie Hall, when the kids face the camera individually and tell what their daddies do. (Identical twins speaking in unison: "Our mommy says our daddy is a sex machine." Remember "I used to be a heroin addict, but now I'm a methadone addict" and "I'm into leather"?)
But Schwarzenegger gets the kids to mind him by putting up a sign on the blackboard declaring his classroom "Police School" and teaching the five-year-olds to march through the playground. The Fuehrerprinzip at work in our schools. Is this part of Bush's No Child Left Behind? Marching? Did Ivan Reitman really make this movie?
The happy ending is Schwarzenegger's Kindergarten Cop splattering a young boy's father's brains against the bathroom wall at school PRACTICALLY IN FRONT OF THE BOY. Then the principal lets him come back to the school as a teacher after he's put all the kids' lives at risk. If the writers had thought about the story for a few minutes more they could have come up with a climax that made Schwarzenegger the hero-savior but wasn't as unbelievably (if still gratuitously) vicious. But I guess that doesn't matter in Schwarzenegger movies.
Movies aren't real life, but what kind of people put this stuff out for people to be entertained by? Best of luck, California.
