YMMV: Kindergarten Cop
  • Fountain of Memes
  • He Really Can Act: Many critics thought this way about Arnold Schwarzenegger in this film.
  • Jerkass Woobie: Barely, but Crisp towards the end could be considered this. He seriously loves his son and the look on his face shows authentic joy when he confronts him and real sadness when his son doesn't recognize him. Yeah, he takes him as a hostage, but he could have just bluffed.
  • Memetic Mutation: Oh, where to begin?
    • IT'S NOT A TUMOR TOOMAH.
      • EET'S AH FYHEREHT.
    • Now I want to ask you a bunch of questions... and I want to have them answered IMMEDIATELY...
    • HOO iz yaw DAA-DEE... and wat duzzy DOO?
    • "Ahr deez yuhr lunches? You mean ya eat udduh people's lunches? STOP IT!"
    • I'M DETECTIVE JOHN KIMBLE!
      • I'M A COP YOU IDIOT!
    • THERE IS NO BATHROOM!
    • TO DE CAHPET!
      • TAKE IT BACK!
      • DAAAAAAAMN!
    • Boys have a penis. Girls have a vagina.
      • Thanks for da tip.
    • STOP WHINING!
    • Two words: SHUUUUUUUUUT UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUP!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Narm Charm: Arnold's Big "Shut Up!" during his first day at school.
  • Nightmare Fuel: The big fire and shootout climax is pretty damn intense.
  • What an Idiot: Kimble undercover with his own, real name.
  • What Do You Mean, It's Not for Kids?: Tough guy Arnold Schwarzenegger finds himself out of his depth when he has to deal with a class of adorable children: a heartwarming family comedy, right? Well, not really. Between the crackhouse shoot-out that introduces Kimble in all his Badass glory, to an abusive father getting punched by the hero, to the blue-lipped junkie cold on the slab after being spiked by the villain, to Kimble dreaming of Crisp shooting him, to O'Hara being caught having noisy sex with her fiancÚ, to Crisp holding his own five year old son hostage, to Crisp getting shot three times in the chest, to Kimble bleeding out in the corner of a bathroom as Eleanor Crisp demands her grandson, the film is definitely not for children.
