Following the success of 1988's twins, Arnie once again tests the water of comedy and arguably delivers his best performance in the genre. As detective Richard Kimble, he goes undercover as a kindergarten teacher to flush out the former wife of a drug dealer.
While Twins played off the gimmick of pairing Schwarzenegger with Danny DeVito for it's laughs, this film concentrates a lot more on characterisation, as well as a decent story which includes a little romance and some action. Penelope Ann Miller gives a good performance as Arnie's love interest but the film is stolen by supporting actresses Pamela Reed as Schwarzenegger's partner and Linda Hunt as the school's principal.
