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

When Hercules holds back the forklift truck after escaping the
ship with Pretzie, he says "A fine chariot, but where are your horses?" but he mouths the words too early and no audio is heard. This is corrected in the non-dubbed version with Schwarzenegger's real voice. See more »

Mind-numbingly funny; but also one of the worst films ever...
Hercules in New York is quite possibly one of the funniest films ever made; it is also one of the worst. Arnold stomps from scene to scene with the same vacant expression, occasionally flickering his eyes. However, he also creates one of the most memorably stupid characters in Cinematic History: Hercules.("You're on the make, Herc!", to which Arnold replies "What, I am not making anything?") There are scenes of comic genius; A chariot race down Broadway; A fight with the hilariously fake bear in the park, in which his screaming girlfriend looks at the camera very blatantly; A weightlifting competition with Monstro the Magnificent... all to the sound of silly Greek wedding music. Bottom line- It has to be seen to be believed. SEE IT NOW!!
