"Who is your daddy and what does he do?!"
This joke would be hilarious if I didn't wish it were true ...
The Criterion Collection who promise a July 24th Blu-ray and DVD release of the classic 1990 Schwarzenegger flick, Kindergarten Cop.
Official Criterion Synopsis:
"Historically, the policier and the family comedy were two distinct categories. Then, in 1990, Kindergarten Cop gave us all a lesson in genre revisionism. With muscular sensitivity, Hollywood’s last action hero Arnold Schwarzenegger embodies detective John Kimble, who is compelled to go undercover as a teacher of five-year-olds in order to catch a ponytailed drug dealer. Though it’s distinguished by pulse-pounding suspense, a Crayola-bright palette by cinematographer Michael Chapman (Taxi Driver), and trenchant observations about education in the Bush I era, the film’s emotional center is Schwarzenegger’s gruff yet good-tempered interaction with a class full of precocious scamps, including a tumor-forewarning death-obsessive and a genitalia expert. By leavening a children’s film with enough violence to please even the most cold-hearted bastard, director Ivan Reitman shows that he refuses to color inside the lines."
As we are all aware The Criterion Collection takes pride in selecting deserving films and giving them the best possible home releases possible and I firmly believe Kindergarten Cop deserves that treatment. Too bad it's a cruel joke taunting us die-hard KC fans ...
Hell, they even made this trailer:
I'd totally buy it ... damn you April Fool's Day for getting my hopes up! Thanks for the heads up Digital Dudes, who I am pretty sure both want this to be just as real as I do.
