Junior (1994) Comedy 110 min.
Dir: Ivan Reitman Stars:Arnold Schwarzenegger, Emma Thompson, Danny DeVito
Blurb: When his funding is cut off and his lab is taken over by another researcher (Thompson), a scientist (Schwarzenegger) resorts to testing a new drug he has devised to ensure healthy pregnancies on himself, with the aid of his doctor associate (DeVito).
Comments: An engaging and accurate portrayal of the vicissitudes and challenges of science, regulation, and university bureaucracy. Schwarzenegger offers a superb and hilarious performance presenting an exaggerated view of the effects of pregnancy. Thompson and DeVito put in outstanding performances as well.
Furthermore, Junior just might be the best film in the history of cinema – at least according to the organizers of this essay contest.
