Back when Arnold Schwarzenegger was the biggest actor in Hollywood (both literally and in terms of sales), he occasionally decided to shed his tough-guy image and opt to do a comedy instead.
One of the earliest examples of this is 1990's Kindergarten Cop, a movie that managed to mix both action and comedy in a way that few are able to top. We still love it, but we're willing to bet you might not know some of these facts about making it...
Arnie wasn't the first choice to play John Kimble.
The studio offered the role to both Bill Murray and Patrick Swayze, who both turned it down. Arnold took an interest in it after having just recently become a father.
He ended up shaping how a lot of the movie was done.
Ghostbusters director Ivan Reitman was brought on at Arnold's request, as the two were friends and he felt Reitman would be a good fit. The Governator also demanded that fitness be a central theme to the film, and both he and Reitman agreed it needed to feature broken homes, child abuse, and family life.
Pamela Reed had fun with her "Austrian" accent.
For the scenes where she pretends to be Arnie's sister, Reed had fun imitating the actor's trademark thick accent. "Inside of an hour he was calling me 'my leetle Pemelah' and I was calling him 'my deah Ah-nold.' "
Arnold was pretty busy while making the movie.
During a day off from filming, he had to fly back to Los Angeles and head to an entirely different film set. Why, you might ask? To film the teaser trailer for a little movie called Terminator 2: Judgment Day.
