Hot on the trail of the Eastern-European criminal kingpin, Zogu, unexpectedly, the old-school F.B.I. Agent, Reed, finds himself at a well-organised elementary school. Knowing that Zogu is after a tiny flash drive containing highly sensitive information, Reed has to pose as a substitute kindergarten teacher to stand a chance of retrieving the precious item that is hidden somewhere in the classroom of a mysteriously deceased instructor. Now, like a fish out of water, Reed needs to take control of the class without blowing his cover; however, this is easier said than done. Can tough officer Reed gain the classroom's confidence before it's too late?Written by

Severely disappointing, if you're a fan of the original (or good movies in general).
'KINDERGARTEN COP 2': Two and a Half Stars (Out of Five)
A sequel to the 1990 hit action-comedy flick 'KINDERGARTEN COP' (starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, and directed by Ivan Reitman). This followup is more of a remake, than a sequel, and it stars Dolph Lundgren, as a new character (an FBI agent named Agent Reed). The film was directed by Don Michael Paul (who also helmed such other B- movies as 'HALF PAST DEAD', 'LAKE PLACID: THE FINAL CHAPTER', 'JARHEAD 2: FIELD OF FIRE' and 'TREMORS 5: BLOODLINES') and it was written by David H. Steinberg (who also wrote other B-comedy flicks, like 'SLACKERS' and 'AMERICAN PIE PRESENTS BOOK OF LOVE'). The movie costars Bill Bellamy, Darla Taylor, Fiona Vroom and Aleks Paunovic. The film is severely disappointing, if you're a fan of the original (or good movies in general).
Agent Reed (Lundgren) is a very conservative, and dedicated (but slightly crazy), FBI agent. Agent Sanders (Bellamy) is his more rational, and by the book, partner. The two must infiltrate a kindergarten class, on a new assignment, in order to find an important flash drive. Due to the fact that the students there already know who Sanders is, from previously being interviewed by him, Reed must pose as a kindergarten teacher. The modern, and very politically correct, school environment presents a huge challenge for Reed (and his old school ways).
The film is adequately directed (for what it is), and decently acted, but it's not funny. The jokes are painful to watch at times, and the whole movie just seems pointless. Maybe the original film would feel the same way, if I actually went back and watched it again, but I did love it when I was a kid. Lundgren is at least likable in the lead; although not nearly as much so, as Schwarzenegger was.
