KINDER­GARTEN COP (1990) SEVEN, 8.30PM, M, COM­EDY

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

Arnold Sch­warzeneg­ger is well cast as a hard­ened de­tec­tive plucked from LA’s mean streets to lo­cate the only link to catch­ing a drug lord – the crim’s ex-wife and six-yearold son. To do so he is placed un­der­cover as a kinder­garten teacher where all the ob­vi­ous cutesy an­tics take place (“It’s not a too-ma,” he snaps, in re­ply to an an­klebiter’s en­dear­ing med­i­cal di­ag­no­sis). Al­though en­joy­able, it sharply twists from child’s play to vi­o­lence in the clos­ing mo­ments, and never set­tles on a game plan. ★★★
