Making an successful action
movie and comedy at the same time is traveling over tough terrain, but director
Ivan Reitman makes all the bumps seem smooth. Arnold Schwarzenegger is a cop impersonating
a kindergarten teacher in order to find the estranged wife of a drug dealer. Between her
charming son and herself, the cop is easy prey to love. Penelope Ann Miller matches with
Arnold well and the ensuing romance evolves naturally.
Though presented in 1.33 open matte format, I did not find the compositions cramped or cropped. The image is very sharp without feeling artificially enhanced. Still, the director's intention was a 1.85 composition . thus, the 1.33 compromises the DVD. Kindergarten Cop is an appropriately colorful movie and the transfer reflects the high key color palette.
