    Arnold Schwarzenegger as a pregnant man? The Terminator with cramps and morning sickness? That was all the teasing audiences needed to flock to this 1994 farce, which reunited Arnold with his director and costar from Twins, Ivan Reitman and Danny De Vito. Reitman had also directed the Austrian muscleman in Kindergarten Cop, and they brought the same breezy quality of those earlier films to this enjoyable fluff, in which Arnold plays a scientist who uses his own body to test a revolutionary new fertility drug. His colleague De Vito talks him into the experiment, which succeeds beyond their wildest expectations when Arnold begins a full-term pregnancy. Emma Thompson offers a wealth of comedic support as the biologist who moves into Schwarzenegger's lab while he's coping with his "maternal" condition, and Pamela Reed (who was also in Kindergarten Cop) adds to the fun as De Vito's pregnant ex-wife. What's surprising about this mainstream hit is not that it makes the most of its absurd premise, but that it's also sweetly heartwarming in its treatment of role reversal and the joys and pains of pregnancy. It's a good-natured vehicle for a different side of Schwarzenegger's star appeal, and the fact that it works at all is a tribute to Reitman and his cleverly talented cast. --Jeff Shannon

    Product Description

    You'll never guess who's going to have a baby. Watch as the maternal tables are turned forever when, after taking an experimental drug, Arnold Schwarzenegger becomes pregnant!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Lots of Laughs November 21, 2000
    Format:VHS Tape
    At first I really didn't want to see this movie but was forced into it,much like Alex Hesse (schwarzenegger) was talked into doing an illegal scientific experiment on himself by his collegue Larry Arbogast (DeVito).
    Alex has invented a wonderful new drug to help women who tend to have miscarriages.After the FDA won't approve expectane and the university kicks him out of their lab Alex decides to move back to europe.Larry talks him into doing an experiment on himself so that they can get funding for more research.And after they get enough data they'll end it and noone will ever know.
    But the problem is Alex gets attatched to his unborn baby and continues taking the expectane without Larry knowing,of course he eventually does find out and aggrees to help him.
    Along the way though Alex falls in love with Dr. Diana Reddin (Thompson) and she has a key role in the movie so pay attention in the resturant scene.
    I don't understand why so many people didn't enjoy this film.Maybe it's because they have no sense of what a good movie really is.
    I recomend this movie because it's heartwarming,sweet,and it's just plain funny to see Arnold have morning sickness.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Charming & Funny? Inconceivable! June 6, 2000
    Format:VHS Tape
    Arnold Schwarzenegger is probably my favorite movie star. For my money, there is no greater action hero. I think I enjoy him even more, though, in his lighter, more comedic movies. Take "Junior," for example. It is one of the most charming, delightful and funny films I've seen in a long time. Arnold proves once again that he is as comfortable and self-assured in high concept comedy as he is in high octane action. This film is a real winner.
    Schwarzenegger stars as Dr. Alex Hesse, a biochemist doing research on a revolutionary new wonder drug that eliminates miscarriages. Helping him to develop "Expectane" is Dr. Larry Arbogast (Danny DeVito), an obstetrician and fertility doctor. Their project is jeopardized, though, when the FDA refuses to give them approval. The university cuts off their funding, kicks them out and turns their lab over to Dr. Diana Reddin (Emma Thompson).
    Fearing the loss of a potential fortune, Arbogast convinces Alex to test the drug on himself. They implant a fertilized egg in Alex's stomach and he starts taking Expectane, along with huge doses of female hormones. Those hormones set-up most of the comedy in the film, along with some of its better moments.
    Alex gradually starts to take on the "typical" traits of a pregnant woman. He has mood swings, desires for strange food, soft skin and tender nipples. Watching Arnold play these scenes is part of what makes this film so enjoyable. The hormones don't keep him from falling in love, though. Alex's romance with the shy, awkward Dr. Reddin is both cute and funny.
    The casting is probably the best thing about "Junior." It's hard to imagine any other actor pulling this off.

    Format:VHS Tape
    My boyfriend thought it was both funny and compassionate. Although neither of us particularly cared for twins, there was something hillarious about a pregnant man who is played by an actor usually associated with all of the "Macho action roles"
    In all fairness, I don't think it would have been the same if they had Devito or even a smaller built actor in the role. Because the casting was psychologically atypical for a physiologically atypical movie, it made all of the difference in the world.
    Myself and many other women flocked to see this movie (even if we were still single and childless) because of the fantasies. Although wearing the "Pregnancy suit" must have not been easy, one can applaud Schwarzenegger for taking on the role---a move probally not appreciated in some (but thankfully not all) segments of his fan base.
    This is problally by far one of Arnold's few movies that plays on female non-sexual fantasies. It is also the best movie to rent around that certain time.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Ivan Reitman's study of inversion November 18, 2000
    Format:VHS Tape
    Without question, an under-rated, subversive, classic farce, and a study of total inversion. Examples of the latter include
    Arnold - the Last Action Hero becomes a sensitive "Mommy"?
    Danny DeVito - usually plays the heavy; now plays the major sympathetic role in the movie
    Emma Thompson - takes a break from the Shakespeare in favor of physical comedy
    As many other reviewers have stated, this movie is also a realistic and side-splitting look at pregnancy.
    The subversion is its underlying pro-life theme: "My body, my choice", inverted. This is so politically incorrect that I often wonder how Reitman got away with it.
    To the Aussies who reviewed this a while back: What the hell were you expecting? A Predator sequel, maybe? Yeah, I remember when I had my first beer.....

    5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic...Magical January 6, 2007
    This documentary follows 2 years in the life of a brave scientist, Dr. Alex Hesse who is willing to sacrifice his own time, health, and life to answer the question that has boggled the minds of men since the dawn of time; Is it possible for men to bear children, and if so, are they better at doing it then women or simply different. While its obvious throughout the film that the male body is not designed for the carrying of a child, Dr. Hesse does it with a grace and without complaining (at least that is shown). The film is powerful and magical
