Funny Arnold 2.0

Many movie fans know that the real hidden talent of Arnold Schwarzenegger which emerged after decades of starring in muscled-up action movies is not political sensibility or balancing social liberalism with fiscal prudence, but is in fact comedy. If you've seen Junior or Kindergarten Cop, you know it's true--the man has some real comic talent.

Kindergarten Cop

Watching Emma Thompson chase a fleeing and hugely pregnant Arnold Schwarzenegger through a college campus--that's some funny shit. So now that Arnold has decided to explore other, lamer career options, we're left with a void. A void that can only be filled by another burly muscle man who is not afraid to get a laugh out of a kid peeing on his head. That man is Vin Diesel.


IMDb's plot summary for Kindergarten Cop: "John Kimble is a tough city cop who's been on the trail of drug dealer Cullen Crisp for years. He finally tracks Crisp down but it seems the only person that can testify against him is his ex-wife. The problem is she's disappeared and all Kimble knows is the name of the school in Oregon where her son attends. When things don't quite go to plan, Kimble finds he has to go undercover on his toughest assignment yet - Kindergarten teacher!"

IMDb's plot summary for The Pacifier: "The film is the story of an undercover agent who, after failing to protect an important government scientist, learns the man's family is in danger. In an effort to redeem himself, he agrees to take care of the man's children only to discover that child care is his toughest mission yet."
