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.

Detective John Kimble:
Hey, come here.

If you don't stop screwing around back there, this is what I'm gonna do with you.

Before I comment, I would just like to say this is my first time on IMDb reviewing a film. I am a big Arnold Schwarzenegger fan and I thought this was one of his finest. I am such a big fan, I can spell his last name without thinking about it and I have a bobble head of Terminator 3 on my computer. Anyways, this movie was great. It was funny in a heartwarming children's comedy sort of way for most of it. It has some of the best Arnold Schwarznegger quotes ever such as, "DOMINIC!" "STOP WHINING!" and "IT'S NOT A TUMOR!" There are also some pretty quotable quotes by other actors. There was decent action scenes for a comedy. The supporting actors did a swell job especially the antagonist and Kimble's partner. I enjoyed the film and would think it should be in the top 250 films list, but everyone has their own opinion and I respect that... sort of. Overall swell movie. I would watch it with your family, but be warned that there are some sexual references and profane or lewd speech so don't watch it with little kids. I would stick with 10 and up.
