Basically, when it all comes down to it, there is nothing particularly special about `Junior.' Sadly, we've seen it all before. And I LIKE Arnie, so it's got to be true coming from me!
7 March 2003 | by MovieAddict2016See all my reviews

Arnold Schwarzenegger had already stretched his funny bone when `Junior' came out in 1994. He had made a little film with Danny DeVito named `Twins,' and a sweet-natured comedy called `Kindergarten Cop.' And let's not forget his very first film, `Hercules in New York,' a.k.a. `Hercules Goes Bananas,' which would have fit the title much better.

But `Junior' is, by far, the worst comedy Schwarzenegger has starred in. Well, it's a close tie between `Jingle All the Way.'

Schwarzenegger plays a doctor who takes some top-secret medication, which makes him pregnant. Arnie pregnant. I wouldn't want to be there when the contractions kick in.

DeVito plays the doctor who helps keep it under wraps. Basically, the whole comedy blunders around doing nothing slowly. It had a lot of potential even with its ridiculous plot, but they just couldn't pull it off. They spend too much time doing nothing, including a scene with DeVito and Schwarzenegger talking about how DeVito's girlfriend ran off and had a child with an Aerosmith band member. So we really need specifics?

But that doesn't keep the mandatory one-liners from coming. I was waiting for Arnie to be in the throes of labor. I can see him being pulled back on top of a medical cot. And then he turns to Danny DeVito and says, `I'll be back!' Too bad they didn't use that one. It would have been good.

The funniest line in the film? `This is my body! I'll do whatever I want!' Classic Arnie.

Basically, when it all comes down to it, there is nothing particularly special about `Junior.' Sadly, we've seen it all before. Well, actually, I really haven't seen a movie about a pregnant man before, but `Junior' still isn't as good as it could have been. And should have been.

Good actors. Decent premise. Bad movie.
