Following Twins (1988) and Kindergarten Cop (1990), this is the third film in an unconnected trilogy of comedies directed by Ivan Reitman and starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. Schwarzenegger's co-stars in this film included Danny DeVito (who also starred in "Twins") and 'Pamela Reed' (who also starred in "Kindergarten Cop"). All three films involve a theme of childrearing.

At different times both Alex and Diana pick up a vial containing an egg from a liquid nitrogen container with their bare hands. Such containers are always handled with heavy gloves and metal tongs, because the extreme cold (-346ºF) would freeze the skin off of bare fingers. See more »
This film is one of the strangest films I've ever seen, and I've seen some pretty strange movies (Attack of the Killer Banana anyone?). Although extremely strange, it's funny, in only a way the director of Ghostbusters could make it. Arnold's explanation of why he's so ugly in drag is hilarious. Emma Thompson gives a particuarly good role by Danny DeVito. Worth a rental, if not a buy.
