Rating: 3/4 -- Kindergarten Cop is made up out of parts that shouldn't fit, but somehow they do, making a slick entertainment out of the improbable, the impossible, and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Full Review

Rating: 2.5/5 -- In Kindergarten Cop, he plays off the Schwarzenegger image more gleefully and successfully than ever before.

[Schwarzenneger's] transformation in to kids film star is nearly seamless, as he's able to connect with his primarily younger cast surprisingly well, and garners a strong chemistry with just about everyone in the film. Full Review
Rating: 3/4 -- Actually fairly entertaining, buoyed by Schwarzenegger's self-deprecating charm and easy chemistry with his capable costar, Pamela Reed, and the hammiest bunch of tykes ever assembled for a movie. Full Review
Rating: 4/5 -- The Terminator meets Mother Goose. Full Review

[Director Reitman's] got a way with kids, and found a remarkable ensemble of 30 antic urchins to work with, cashing in on kindergarten's comic terrain and the blurted brutal honesty of the kids. Full Review
To trap an elusive criminal, a veteran cop is forced to go undercover as a pre-school teacher. This charming film is one of Schwarzenegger's best efforts.
A rough, tough, take-no-nonsense LA cop goes undercover as a kindergarten teacher in Oregon to find and protect the son of a drug-dealer -- and he discovers that he just may have met his match in the roomful of rowdy moppets.
