Worse than "Junior"
on October 26, 2000
I have been a big Arnold Schwarzenegger fan ever since I can remember watching movies. A big part of my fascination with the big guy is because of the image he has produced of himself. That tough-guy image was shattered when he played a pregnant man in Junior. While many people applauded his willingness to change his image, many of us were rather close to tears. This film wasn't what I needed after watching the previous disaster. Here Arnie plays a devoted father who goes out of his way to get his son his favorite doll. The movie shows promise early on but doesn't deliver. It goes for cheap laughs all the way and it let's Sinbad carry way too much weight. Sinbad has got to be one of the worst comedy actors of all time.
Arnie can be funny, he proved that in Twins. That was a good film and he didn't abandon everything that many of us have come to admire of him. In this film, he even makes countless jokes of his earlier films and roles, and in a very poor manner. I thougt that after this film, Arnie couldn't make any more really bad films. I was wrong-Batman and Robin had yet to surface.
