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

To help Arnold get the role, his agent said he had years of "stage" experience, implying theater, but Schwarzenegger had only appeared on bodybuilding stages. See more »
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 »

If you think this movie isn't worth watching, then you obviously have no sense of humor. Stop taking life so seriously and go watch "Hercules Goes to New York." If you can't laugh at this movie and appreciate it for the horrible piece of seventies anti-porn money at work that it is, then perhaps something along the lines of, oh, we'll say that Mariah Carey movie put out a number of years ago, or perhaps a documentary on the Exxon Valdez disaster would be more up your alley. Either way, when you die, you'll be glad you saw it at least, or more likely, at most, once. It beats being mean to people. You also get to witness firsthand the glorious age before dubbing was perfected, and hear Arnold as you've never heard him before.
