So, yes, “Kindergarten Cop 2” is real thing, and no, it sadly doesn’t star Arnold Schwarzenegger. Instead, another action hero has taken the lead role, with Dolph Lundgren stepping in as the cop who gets his hands full with unruly kids, and you can see the result of this direct-to-video effort with the new trailer for the movie.
Auteur Don Michael Paul (“Jarhead 2: Field of Fire,” “Tremors 5: Bloodlines“) directs this one, which is apparently a sequel, though it seems to be in name only. At any rate, the laughs here come from Lundgren’s conservative cop having to go undercover at a “liberal” school. Particularly in an era when DVD sales are pretty much flatlining, I’m not sure why Universal is investing in stuff like this, but I’m guessing the reasons are far from creative.
“Kindergarten Cop 2” hits DVD and Digital HD on May 17th, in case you are wildly curious. Watch below. [EW]
