Storyline

Alex Hesse and Larry Arbogast are working on a new drug which will reduce the chances of a woman's body rejecting an embryo and thus causing a miscarriage. When their research funding is withdrawn, and human experimentation is denied to them, they decide to test the drug by breifly impregnating Hesse. Hesse however becomes attached to "his" unborn baby.

Trivia

Out of all the films Ivan Reitman has made with Arnold Schwarzenegger, he has cited Junior (1994) as not his best, but his favourite. See more »

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

Dr. Alex Hesse: I've noticed that the side effects of pregnancy are greatly amplified... With the dosage of Expectane that l've required. The morning sickness, the mood swings. Sleepiness, sexual appetite.
Larry: Sexual appetite?
Dr. Alex Hesse: Yesterday, just scooping the middle out of a honeydew melon gave me a - A "Steifen".
Larry: A what? Oh. That's normal. I get 'em all the time.

Actually a pretty funny Arnie movie!
19 November 2000 | by (Hoffman Estates, Illinois, USA) – See all my reviews

The first time I saw this I was like "ok, that is kinda strange", but this movie gets better every time you see it. There are some funny parts in this movie especially where arnie is in the dress! I wanted to see this, because I really liked Twins and Junior also stars Danny De Vito so it was like a reunion. If you liked Twins I think you will like this too. Ivan Reitman is a pretty good director. i don't think he has made a movie that I haven't liked. If you want a good laugh then go out and rent this arnie movie today. It is not as bad as you have heard from others. 8.5/10
