  1. Arnold Schwarzenegger's enjoyable but not hugely special Kindergarten Cop - has a whole roomful of the little tykes making genital jokes and constantly having to go to the bathroom. [21 Dec 1990, p.7]

    It certainly is not a masterpiece, but Kindergarten Cop is just fine. It makes for great entertainment and is the defintion of escapism. It isIt certainly is not a masterpiece, but Kindergarten Cop is just fine. It makes for great entertainment and is the defintion of escapism. It is a feel good movie with a funny turn from Ahnold along with some good action sequences. Sure, it is undeniably implausible at times and is certainly not a very good film, but as pure entertainment, it gets the job done. The comedy is well timed (a lot of it thanks to the kids in the film) and light. Overall, there is not much to say about this one. It is fun, entertaining, and a joy to watch, as well as sure to leave you with a smile on your face at the end. You could do far worse for some easy watching. Full Review »
