Arnold Schwarzenegger screams at a bunch of fucking children in a movie and it gets bad reviews? What kind of world are we living in?!! I'm giving it a 100 just to spite you all.

Kindergarten Cop exemplifies what is probably the single most annoying thing about Hollywood: the idea that if you have an even remotely interesting concept, the hard part of your job is done, and you can fill in the blanks in your script with cliches. Is simple, light-hearted entertainment really such a bad thing? No, I guess it isn't, but I reserve my right to bitch about it.

This is a terrible flick packed with weak comedy and more obnoxiously cute kids than you can menacingly wave a .45 at, but it did introduce the phrase "It's not a toomah!" to our cultural lexicon.

While obviously a bad film from the outset, that's not to say that there aren't some entertaining scenes. As the typically robotic Schwarzenegger comes out with so many unusual pronunciations, strange little phrases and one instance of face-warping screaming the film is automatically injected with some unintentional humour making it just that little bit more watchable. It's still really poorly done though, plus those annoying pretentious American kids are only bearable for a little while.

"Who is your daddy and what does he do?" "It's not a tumor!" "My name is John Kimble, and I love my car." Arnold's comedy-classic "Kindergarten Cop" can do no wrong.

Kindergarten Cop is my ultimate guilty pleasure and I absolutely love this film. I've always enjoyed Arnold Schwarzenegger in comedic roles and this is definitely his funniest film. It's one of the most quotable films ever and after a countless number of viewings it still makes me laugh. I enjoyed it as a child, growing up and still now. And I can't wait to watch it with my own children. And lastly, "IT'S NOT A TUMOUR!

I'm looking at a lot of reviews, and I've got to say "what's with you people?" Kindergarten Cop is one of the finest examples of Schwartzennagearian acting I've ever seen. How can you resist 90 minutes of Arnold screaming at children? You can't. That's how.

Who is your daddy and what does he do? Yeah I'm a police officer. I'm Detective John Kimball. So many great lines, that I was able to use for prank phone calls in college. I don't know if I would say the movie was that great but these catchy lines help out its score.

This winning 1990 comedy stars Arnold Schwarzenegger in an initially self-deprecating role as a grizzled, big-city cop who goes undercover as a small-town kindergarten teacher to nab a killer. One of the best films of director Ivan Reitman (Dave), this comedy (with some thriller elements) went a long way to further soften and broaden Schwarzenegger's image.

I think Twins did more to hurt Arnold Schwarzenegger's film career than anything else. Before Twins, he was solely an action hero, but because Twins was a funny film, he began to believe he could do comedy on a regular basis and failed spectacularly.

The breaking point of the greatness that was 80s cinema. What could have symbolized the beefing up of children's movies (casting Arnie, OD'ing witnesses and shooting people) ended up sybolizing the decline of R rated fun (juxtaposing action with hollow PG plot lines, and selling the concept to the youngest audience).

Possibly one of the best of Arnold's flicks. A story he almost fits into, even. The story here is excellently plotted, and never sells itself short, which is a welcome relief from others of this type.

I loved this film as a kid but it definitely feels a lot weaker now. Kimble’s learning curve as a teacher is far too implausibly sharp; the wig-donning, permanently stoned-looking baddie is a bit naff; the whole drug dealers/gangsters stuff feels like every other lazy film of the era; and in hindsight we could actually have done with more ‘kids say the funniest things’ bits. It’s still nice enough to sit through though, with a decent score and some quotable lines.

I watched this a lot as a kid and it was fun - but aside from the absurd premise and the crazy Schwarzenegger performance it doesn't hold up that well. All the same, if you're an Arnold fan you should at least give it a view. Here's three reasons why, from the Criterion collection: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mwXwHR3mQ8c

Like most Schwarzenegger movies, it's mostly his presence that gives the movie any weight at all. This would have been really forgettable without him, but there's something inherently funny about the idea of a huge loud Austrian man in charge of a bunch of kindergarteners. That's really the movie's only draw, so if that sounds funny to you, it will be fun to watch. If it sounds dumb, it probably won't change your mind halfway through.
