Moviefone's Top Blu-ray of the Week

Kids say the darnedest things! Isn't that what Bill Cosby taught us back in the 1990s? Well, the legendary comedian was right, obviously, especially when it comes to memorable movie quotes. We wanted to take a look back through the decades at some of the most hilarious, touching, unforgettable lines said by kid characters (most are live-action, but there are a few animated characters too). We even asked some of our friends and readers what their favorites were and came up with this list of 25, but it just as easily could have been 50.
And if you notice we paid extra attention to the '80s and '90s, let's just say that's when many of us were growing up; we're sure younger (and older) readers could come up with an entirely different lineup of quotes. Feel free to share them in the comments!

Han Solo teaming up with Rocky and Kindergarten Cop. Who’d have thunk it. The Expendables trilogy has gone from strength to strength and the third and final movie certainly has one helluva cast. We’ve got some new stills to tide us over until the mayhem unfolds in a few weeks and if you missed the latest trailer yesterday, check it out here »

June 2014. So what does the month of June usually remind one of during this time of year? Well, besides Father’s Day and possible scheduled weddings this sixth month in the calendar year marks the celebrated occasion for the ending of the school semester. Whether students are simply looking forward to their summer vacation or managed to complete a milestone in graduating from said grammar school, middle school, high school or college the month of June is closely identified with the school season coming to a close (unless one can escape the doldrums of a summer school session).
So to mark this auspicious occasion we should take a look at some random films with an educational theme. Hence, “Too Cool for School: Top 10 Random Films Making the Grade” will briefly examine a selection of higher education ditties that taught us something (or perhaps nothing) during our heyday of cramming for tests. »

In 1990, Arnold Schwarzenegger famously asked in the film Kindergarten Cop: "Who is your Ryan Lewis and what does he do?" Nearly a quarter century later, we still don't know. Ostensibly, we know he is the guy next to Macklemore, but lots of people are next to people; that means nothing. To try to get to the bottom of this, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon sent Ryan Lewis to the street to find out from fans of his music. He doesn't wear a disguise, mind you, just his everyday-other-guy face. »

This article contains spoilers for Kindergarten Cop.
When Arnold Schwarzenegger teamed up with director Ivan Reitman for the first time, the pair struck box office gold. The project that brought them together? Twins, the ultimate high concept movie, that paired Arnie with Danny DeVito. Much money was made, and Twins is one of the films that Arnie is now trying to get a sequel moving to as he attempts to pump life into his box office powers.
Reitman and Schwarzenegger would team up for two more comedies, to which Schwarzenegger appears less interested in resurrecting. Junior would follow in 1994, but it's 1990's Kindergarten Cop that we're focusing on here.
The Terminator came out in 1984. Terminator 2: Judgment Day arrived seven years later. In the interim, Arnold Schwarzenegger became a new kind of action megastar, headlining a string of era-defining beefcake blockbusters. Commando, Predator, The Running Man, and Total Recall: The very titles echo down through history, dripping with gunsmoke and bicep sweat. But that era was coming to an end. The ’80s were over. Always a savvy operator, Schwarzenegger was already planning his pivot: Twins and Kindergarten Cop offered a kinder, gentler Arnold. (He loves kids! He loves De Vito!)
And so the essential twist that led to »

Ivan Reitman has always worked best with a charismatic front man. Back when he had Bill Murray star in his films (Ghostbusters, Stripes, Meatballs), sloppy timing and bantamweight premises were part of the charm: There are worse directorial strategies than “get out of Murray’s way and let him do his magic.” But such an approach falters when, say, a lumbering Arnold Schwarzenegger is the star (Kindergarten Cop). And though Kevin Costner could have been the right guy to work with Reitman during the actor's Bull Durham era, these days his famous lopsided smile has been supplanted by an omnipresent scowl. And that does not a good Reitman movie make.Draft Day boasts a certain charm anyway — if only because its real star is football, a game with enough appeal to go around. Costner is Sonny Weaver Jr., a fictional Cleveland Browns’ general manager, and you can blame his petulant »

You may think you're not interested in a sturdy little dramatic comedy about the intricacies of the NFL draft process. But with Draft Day, you're in the hands of a master.
Ivan Reitman, the guy who gave us Ghostbusters, Stripes, and, well, Ok, Kindergarten Cop, sure knows what he's doing: This isn't so much a movie about sports as it is a riff on politics in the broad sense of the word, and the ways in which smart, insightful people play along to get along — and then change the game for the better by following their gut.
Kevin Costner plays the (fictitious) general manager of the Cleveland Browns, torn between making a flashy deal for a vain superstar quarterback (Josh Pence) and drafting a player and all-around good guy (Chadwick Bose »
If we were to discuss the best Arnold Schwarzenegger movie, there are only a few titles really worth considering. His best Rotten Tomatoes score -- with a 100% fresh rating -- is The Terminator. And his highest grossing movie of all time (domestically, internationally and adjusted for inflation) is Terminator 2: Judgment Day. Both of those movies are his two highest rated features on IMDb based on user votes. One or the other of the first two Terminator movies is easily crowned his best movie, but he's made plenty of guilty pleasures. You probably have a personal favorite regardless of whether it's a good movie or not. Maybe you really like Schwarzenegger's comedies like Twins or Kindergarten Cop or Jingle All the Way. There are also all...

After years of rumours and speculation, Ivan Reitman has confirmed that he will not direct Ghostbusters 3. The director of comedy classics like Kindergarten Cop, Junior, Twins and the previous two Ghostbusters movies will leave the project, but will stay on-board to help Sony's Amy Pascal find a new director. Citing his reasons, the long-running 'will he/won't he?' confusion regarding Bill Murray's involvement prompted script re-writes, but it was the recent and saddening passing of Reitman's friend and Ghostbuster Harold Ramis that...

There are so many great things about this video. 1. Obviously, as per the title, it features Arnold Schwarzenegger crushing things with a tank. Random things, too. Everything from bubble wrap to weights to a copy of Million Dollar Baby (because it makes him cry). 2. The video was directed by one of our favorite up-and-comers, Jordan Vogt-Roberts, whose Kings of Summer kinda ruled 2013. 3. The entire purpose of the video is to announce a contest where the winner gets to fly to Los Angeles and crush things inside Arnold's tank with Arnold. That's like every dude's fantasy right there, and hey -- we bet you can even ask all the Kindergarten Cop questions you want. There are no limits to this amazing reward. 4. Finally, all of the...

Ivan Reitman will receive a lifetime achievement award at CinemaCon, studios’ annual grip-and-grin with theater owners. Also read: ‘Draft Day’ Trailer Stars Kevin Costner as Gm of NFL's Cleveland Browns (Video) The director-producer has shown a penchant for creating mainstream comedy hits over the past four decades, having managed to excavate the funny side of Arnold Schwarzenegger in such films as “Kindergarten Cop” and “Twins.” Reitman also directed “Stripes,” “Dave” and the “Ghostbusters” filmes, along with producing “Old School” and Howard Stern's “Private Parts.” His latest venture, “Draft Day,” a sports comedy with Kevin Costner, premieres this spring.

Monuments Men. Is it New, Gentler Hollywood’s answer to The Dirty Dozen? Sadly, yes. Throughout film history, ticket buyers have demanded that their men be tough, strong, and human (except for the eighties but everyone was on cocaine back then, so we press on). Today Hollywood has determined that we want more. We still crave/need action heroes, just not recycled old ones. And in order to bring in the women, George Clooney, Brad Pitt and/or Matt Damon should ideally be involved.
Hey Hollywood, we need a new Dirty Dozen. You remember? That 1967 ensemble war movie notable that pretty much created the 70′s action genre with Average Scrawny, Tough Guy-type protagonists, such as Dirty Harry, Travis Bickle, Burt Reynolds and gave new life to a war genre diluted by hippie love and The Beatles.
Your dad will tell you that the original Dirty Dozen were criminals first, »
