10 Facts About 'Kindergarten Cop' That Will Have You Yelling "It's Not A Too-mah!"

- Page 1

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.

The facts just get more wild from here...

11 Disney Reboots That Are Getting Made, Whether You Want Them Or Not

Disney movies were one of those things that you treasured with all of your heart. If you were anything like me, you had a collection of those white puffy cases on VHS and were really proud of how many you had accumulated. The thing is, Disney has continued making great movies in recent years, even though they don't exactly look how we remember them looking. Sure, everything is a little bit more 3D and perhaps slightly too realistic, but the stories will still hit you right in the heart.

'Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory' Star Returns To TV And Everyone Was Freaking Out

Watching Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory as a kid was basically a requirement. Pretty much everyone had to watch it, otherwise everyone else would think you were crazy. Seeing all those bratty kids roam around the chocolate factory, demanding Wonka explain all of his eccentric genius is one of those things that I think was supposed to make me think Wonka was being mean, but really it just made me hate those kids - even Charlie. I know he was technically the hero of the story, but even he broke off from the group and invaded a space he

'Top Gun' Sequel Gets A Release Date And A Title And We're On The Highway To The Danger Zone

Tom Cruise was easily the definitive star of the 80s and 90s. He had a lot of huge hits, but few were as amazing and iconic as Top Gun. Watching them fly their planes and play beach volleyball was super entertaining, and because it's 2018, of course they are planning to bring it back in some way. Nothing is safe from a reboot, remake or sequel, especially if Tom Cruise has a say. The Mission Impossible franchise is on its sixth movie now, with Cruise happily performing his own stunts and continuing to defy danger, but apparently that's not enough.

We all remember watching 10 Things I Hate About You in the late 90s and becoming completely obsessed with Kat Statford's rebel style, or Bianca's collection of cute sundresses. The Stratford sisters were iconic for us, and we can all admit that part of the reason was their absolutely epic house. So many moments in that movie took place in that home, and it just felt like the most iconic and idyllic place for this story to unfold. I don't know how many times I thought that it would be comfortable to sit on the porch of my house and
