Storyline

After many centuries, Hercules gets bored living in Olympus (the home of the great Greek gods) and decides to move to... New York. But obviously, it is not easy for a man who lived in ancient Greece to get used to modern life. So, things get a little tricky, especially when Zeus sends a few gods to bring his semi-god son back to mount Olympus. Written by Chris Makrozahopoulos <makzax@hotmail.com>

Hercules: That is not Hercules! And who is that monster who looks as if he has come straight from the kingdom of the underworld?
Helen Camden: Oh no, this is a motion picture, a play! Really, you mustn't take yourself so seriously.
Hercules: He doesn't even look like me! Look...

Arnold VS. The Bear in Central Park.
13 September 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

That scene is by far the funniest yet horrible scene in film legacy. Arnold is in a chariot with his date when somehow a bear is on the loose in Central Park. For no apparent reason he runs off to fight it. They cut to the bear, And it stands up. Clearly, you can imagine the trainer behind the camera saying "BEAR UP" and it stands up. Now when Arnold fights the bear, It is a man in a costume which looks like it was purchased in Harlem. The back of the mans neck is showing as clear as day while him (the bear) and arnold duke it out. The man is swinging his fists like a MILL. You just cant take your eyes off it. And if you do, you are missing out on the funniest man vs. man (in a animal costume) fight in Film PERIOD.
