British actress Naomie Harris has been nominated for an Oscar for her role as a crack-addicted mother in the 2016 indie drama Moonlight. "No Small Parts" takes a look at some other roles she's played in her career.
John Kimble is a tough city cop who's been on the trail of drug dealer Cullen Crisp for years. He finally tracks Crisp down but it seems the only person that can testify against him is his ex-wife. The problem is she's disappeared and all Kimble knows is the name of the school in Oregon where her son attends. When things don't quite go to plan, Kimble finds he has to go undercover on his toughest assignment yet - Kindergarten teacher! Written by

Handcuffing a witness to a corpse is against departmental regulations for every police force in the United States and socially considered poor manners at best. See more »
After the class practices their Gettysburg Address recital in the gymnasium, Kimble is walking them back into the classroom as Zach is being rushed into school by his mother. She apologizes for him being late, claiming the car wouldn't start. But Zach could clearly be seen standing with his classmates during the practice recital earlier in the gym. See more »
Love to see this film over and over again. I find this was a turning point for Mr. Schwarzengger as an actor...the challenge of being on "the wave" inter-acting with children. The scenic area of the Pacific Northwest also was a plus to the film. Caroll Baker as "Mother Tyson" is a great villainess. Wish I had viewed some of her work. The white streak in her hair, was a great flash back to "Cruella De Ville". Richard Tyson as "Crisp" also plays a smarmy character. Love the contrast of short Linda Hunt's Principal to tall Kimble. Yet Linda proved she could project herself as more formidable than Arnold Schwarzenegger. I also loved the comic timing Broadway's Pamela Reed brought to the film. Her character's pragmatism to Kimble's take it all on, made for another good contrast. Overall the film is good for the whole family or a solitary rainy afternoon escape.
