It’s his toughest assignment so far!
Kindergarten Cop is directed by Ivan Reitman and it stars Arnold Schwarzenegger as John Kimble, a tough police detective who goes undercover as a kindergarten teacher to catch drug dealing baddie Cullen Crisp (Richard Tyson) before Crisp can get to his ex-wife and son. However, having no teaching experience previouslly, Kimble finds the children a right handful. Not only that but he finds himself attracted to another teacher, Joyce (Penelope Ann Miller) to further complicate things.
Sandwiched in between “Total Recall” and “Terminator 2:Judgement Day”, is this light action comedy on Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Curriculum Vitae. With a salary of $12 million in his pocket the big Austrian revels in playing comedy. Much as he did with “Twins” from 1988, Schwarzenegger is comfortable in making himself the butt of the jokes. With a crazy premise such as this one it was imperative that he got the feel of the comedy right, something that he achieves in spades.
Schwarzenegger’s play off with all the children is good fun cinema, even tender at times. For in amongst the froth the writers still slot in serious issues, issues that Schwarzenegger, in spite of his obvious lack of acting gravitas, grasps with two gigantic hands. There’s no surprises in store within the plot, and I’m pretty sure for a film of this type nobody is seriously expecting any. Yet the good honest fun makes this one for all the family to enjoy.
With good support from Miller & Reed, and of course the army of sprightly children, Schwarzenegger once again doesn’t take himself seriously. Hollywood, like it or not, is all the better for it. 6.5/10
John Kimble (Arnold Schwarzenegger) is a cop assigned to put a killer named Crisp behind bars for good. To do so, Kimble needs to find Crisp’s son and ex-wife. All he knows for certain is the name of the small Oregon town where the live and that the boy is kindergarten age. Kimble goes undercover as a kindergarten teacher to try to find the boy. Even though he’s a tough cop on a mission, Kimble realizes, to his amazement, that he enjoys teaching the kids. He also finds a love interest in one of the other teachers, Joyce (Penelope Ann Miller) – a single mother whose son is in Kimble’s class. And, as luck would have it, Kimble discovers that Joyce is Crisp’s ex-wife. How convenient! Kimble will have to act fact, though, because Crisp is on his way to collect his son.
For the most part, Kindergarten Cop is an enjoyable movie. Schwarzenegger seems naturally unnatural around the kids, but that works in the film’s favor. Kimble should be awkward around his class. There are a number of humorous interactions between the un-humorous Kimble and the kids – my favorite being his reaction to the kid obsessed with death. Good stuff. As awkward as Schwarzenegger is around the children, it’s the exact opposite when it comes to his co-star, Miller. There’s a nice chemistry between the two that really shows on-screen. I would have loved to see the pair make more movies together. Another plus for kindergarten cop is Pamela Reed playing Kimble’s partner. Reed is always good and gives a solid performance here. Throw in some nice action toward the film’s conclusion and Kindergarten Cop ends up being a nice experience.
I do, however, have two complaints. First, the film is too long. I really think that if just 10 to 15 minutes were cut from the runtime, it would be a better, tighter movie. Cut the scenes with Cathy Moriarty, for example. They add zilch to the final product. Second, baddie Crisp and his mother aren’t threatening enough. They’re jokes. Had the pair been played with a more menacing tone, the final showdown would have been even better. Still, it’s a solid film as is.
Cute for an afternoon escape from reality
Love to see this film over and over again. I find this was a turning point for Mr. Schwarzengger as an actor…the challenge of being on “the wave” inter-acting with children. The scenic area of the Pacific Northwest also was a plus to the film. Caroll Baker as “Mother Tyson” is a great villainess. Wish I had viewed some of her work. The white streak in her hair, was a great flash back to “Cruella De Ville”. Richard Tyson as “Crisp” also plays a smarmy character. Love the contrast of short Linda Hunt’s Principal to tall Kimble. Yet Linda proved she could project herself as more formidable than Arnold Schwarzenegger. I also loved the comic timing Broadway’s Pamela Reed brought to the film. Her character’s pragmatism to Kimble’s take it all on, made for another good contrast. Overall the film is good for the whole family or a solitary rainy afternoon escape.
A Film That Ages Well
A tough cop (Arnold Schwarzenegger) is given his most difficult assignment ever: to masquerade as a kindergarten teacher in order to find a drug dealer.
When this film first came out, it was panned by just about everyone besides Roger Ebert. Looking back 25 years later, Ebert was probably the only one who got it right. While not the greatest comedy, and certainly not a great action film, this movie has a certain charm that resonates beyond the typical demographic for Arnold’s films.
The only thing that really ages poorly is the bad guy’s hair. But, to be fair, his hair was probably considered atrocious in 1990, too.
