His annual Christmas party faltering thanks to his cynical brother-in-law, former Growing Pains star Kirk Cameron attempts to save the day by showing him that Jesus Christ remains a crucial component of the over-commercialized holiday..
In this live-action prequel to The Flintstones (1994), the Flintstones and the Rubbles go on a trip to Rock Vegas, where Wilma Slaghoople (Kristen Johnston) is pursued by playboy Chip Rockefeller (Thomas Gibson).
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

In the mid-2000s, the UK's BBC One showed the Trimark version, with Arnold's original accent throughout. This version also reveals that the original on location audio was seemingly never re-recorded, due to abrupt changes in ambient sound levels of dialogue, and background sounds. Thus, it plays as akin to a pre-release edit prior to the final release sound mix. See more »

In the original theatrical version, and older VHS versions, Arnold Schwarzenegger's voice is dubbed over by another actor. The DVD version released by Trimark Entertainment has both the original audio track, and a track with Schwarzenegger's real voice (the track also used for the newer VHS versions). In all versions, the voice of Hercules on the radio at the end is of the dub actor. See more »
This is one of the worst movies of all time. The four-hundred-and-something witless souls who awarded this a 10 should be permanently banned from voting.
Forget that it was made on a shoe-string budget, and that at one point Arnold fights the worst bear costume in movie history; forget that he takes his shirt off in every other scene, often with zero motivation; forget that the Mount Olympus scenes are obviously shot in New York; forget even that the acting is of such monumental ineptitude that James Karen (one of the worst actors in "Return of the Living Dead") is far and away the finest thespian in sight. The fact that anybody invested as much as a nickel in a script that one monkey working for one hour could easily have done better is what really blows my mind. The premise is painfully stupid, and the execution of it is as heavy-handed and amateurish as anything you're likely to see. Most porn movies are produced with more consideration for plot.
I recommend "Hercules in New York" to anyone who likes to go to the dentist or enjoys a hard punch in the nose. This is an hour and a half of pure agony.
