Junior ★★ 1994 (PG-13)

Out of the way women! Schwarzenegger trades the war room for the delivery room to experience the miracle of birth. As scientists, he and DeVito take a dip in the gene pool once again to test an anti-miscarriage drug. Thompson provides the egg and some surprisingly good physical comedy as the klutzy cryogenics expert who moves into their university digs. Every pregnancy cliche is explored as Schwar-zenegger and DeVito bring the concept to term. Sorry, action fans…nothing blows up except Arnold. 109m/C VHS, DVD . Arnold Schwarzenegger, Danny DeVito, Emma Thompson, Frank Langella, Pamela Reed, Judy Collins, James Eckhouse, Aida Turturro; D: Ivan Reitman; W: Kevin Wade, Chris Conrad; C: Adam Greenberg; M: James Newton Howard.
