Junior is a 1994 American comedy film directed and produced by Ivan Reitman, and starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Danny DeVito and Emma Thompson.

Plot

A research scientist becomes the world's first pregnant man in order to test a drug he and a colleague have designed for expectant women. To carry out the trial, he has an embryo implant, believing that he will only carry the baby for three months - hardly expecting to face the prospect of giving birth.

Why It Sucks

  1. The premise is unbelievably ridiculous; Arnold Schwarzenegger plays a scientist who experiments on himself and becomes the world's first pregnant man.
  2. Poor attempts at humor.
  3. The Schwarzenegger baby from the dream sequence is downright terrifying.
  4. Throughout the rest of the movie, we have Arnold Schwarzenegger dressed in drag and enter a retreat for expecting mothers.
  5. The film can't decide whether it's supposed to be a comedy or a science-fiction film.
  6. Wasted talents of Arnold Schwarzenegger, Danny DeVito and Emma Thompson.
  7. The idea of a pregnant man is really idiotic and cliché.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. Danny Devito's performance was decent.
  2. The ending was somewhat heartwarming.
