Top 10 Arnold Schwarzenegger Comedy Films

BingMag.com <b>Top</b> 10 <b>Arnold</b> <b>Schwarzenegger</b> <b>Comedy</b> Films

Arnold Schwarzenegger, the star of the "Destroyer" series, has appeared in comedies more than it seems, but the actor's Films are in the Comedy genre. How are they compared to each other?

Arnold Schwarzenegger has nothing to do with the Comedy genre from the point of view of a particular generation of moviegoers. Older viewers will remember that this powerful man, who became an actor, was once known for his role in "Conan the Barbarian" and his other special and serious roles.

Arnie's most famous first role, was in 1984 in The Exterminator. He shone in it as a robotic assassin. Arnie was a stubborn and terrifying murderer and was by no means a humorous figure. However, in Exterminator 2: Judgment Day, the original character of Exterminator changed, and the killer became a lovable person, and Arnie's career as an actor changed. Since then, Schwarzenegger has appeared in more Comedy Films as audiences have praised his skill and humor in this genre. Judgment Day was no stranger to comedy. The actor had experience playing in this genre and had previously acted in Films such as "Hercules in New York", "Predator Hunt" and "Evil" in the 70's. Of course, none of these Films were very successful and were not well received by critics, and Schwarzenegger decided to pursue other works in the 1980s. Arnold tried his luck again after James Cameron's "Terminator 2" and starred again in several Comedy films, each with different results. So let's take a look at all of Schwarzenegger's Comedy Films to date.

10. Scavenger Hunt

  • Director: Michael Schultz
  • Actors: Richard Benjamin, Tony Randall, Chloe Richman
  • Release Date: 1979
  • Raton Tomitosis Score: 25 out of 100
  • IMDb rating per movie: 5.9 out of 10

During the 1960s and '70s, a Comedy subgenre It emerged, and filmmakers thought that bringing together a number of funny actors and sending their characters to a common goal would lead to audience laughter and joy. Admittedly, this style was used in works such as "Crazy World" and "Cannibal Path", but not in a film like 1979's "Carnivore Hunt", which has a recurring story about a game designer who donates his property to a winner of a carnivore hunt. Schwarzenegger is one of the few hilarious elements in the film as Lars, the fitness trainer, but even his brief appearance does not help the film.

9. Hercules In New York ( Hercules In New York )

  • Director: Arthur Allen
  • Actors: Arnold Steng, Deborah Lemis, James Karen
  • Release Date: 1969
  • Raton Tomitosis Score: 14 out of 100
  • IMDb rating for the movie: 3.3 out of 10

"Hercules in New York" starring Arnie In its first cinematic experience (Arnold's character was voiced in this film), it is a poor and unpleasant film, which is higher than "carnivorous hunting" only because it is at least interestingly strangely boring and, of course, budget-wise. He wasted less. Hulk Hogan also appeared in a similar film called "Little Hercules" in 2009, decades after Arnie made his cinematic debut. Like Arnold, the film was not well received by critics, who believed that it failed to make and pay for the legendary hero well in contemporary Los Angeles, and that the whole story was intangible. p>

8. Around The World In 80 Days strong>

BingMag.com <b>Top</b> 10 <b>Arnold</b> <b>Schwarzenegger</b> <b>Comedy</b> Films

  • Director: Frank Kurasi
  • Cast: Jackie Chan, Steve Goran, Jim Bradbent
  • Release Date: 2004
  • Raton Tomitose Score: 39 out of 100
  • IMDb Score to Movie: 5.9 out of 10

"Around the World in 80 Days" in 2004, which has nothing to do with Jules Verne's novel, is a tumultuous action Comedy by Adam Sandler's longtime collaborator, Frank Corasi. The film is not as good as Jackie Chan's "Shanghai Noon," but it is at least a spectacular chase with entertaining moments (including Schwarzenegger's good performance as Hopi Prince). "Around the World in 80 Days" suffered a bad defeat at the box office, which was not fair according to critics, but it must be said that this film has nothing special and unique.

7. Junior ( Junior )

  • Director: Evan Wrightman
  • Actors: Danny Duito, Emma Thompson, Pamela Reed
  • Release Date: 1994
  • Raton Tomitosis Score: 36 out of 100
  • Score </<strong> IMDb to movie: 4.7 out of 10

"Jr." suffered a minor setback at the box office. This film is a simple Comedy that exactly fits the mood of Hollywood in the 90's. In "Jr.," starring Emma Thompson and Danny DeVito, we see Schwarzenegger as a scientist who becomes pregnant through an experimental drug, and that's the whole story. If you are fascinated to see this powerful man who gets pregnant through a special experiment, there is nothing left but the creator of "Ghost Hunters", Ivan Wrightman, has smarter and funnier works than this ordinary comedy.

6. Killing Gunther ( Killing Gunther )

BingMag.com <b>Top</b> 10 <b>Arnold</b> <b>Schwarzenegger</b> <b>Comedy</b> Films

  • Director: Taran Kilam
  • Actors: Taran Kilam, Kobe Smolders, Hannah Simon
  • Release Date: 2017
  • Raton Tomitosis Score: 46 out of 100
  • IMDb rating for the movie: 4.8 out of 10

"Killing Gunter" released in 2017 He deserves admiration for his creative story. Schwarzenegger plays a super-killer named Gunter, and Taran Kilam plays a young claimant who hopes to become famous by "killing Gunter." Unfortunately, this entertaining hypothesis gives way to a predictable action comedy, and the story goes out of its way. However, this film is a perfectly acceptable work with a good play by Schwarzenegger.

5. Evil ( The Villain )

BingMag.com <b>Top</b> 10 <b>Arnold</b> <b>Schwarzenegger</b> <b>Comedy</b> Films

  • Director: Hal Neidham
  • Actors: Kirk Douglas, Anne Margaret, Paul Lind
  • Release Date: 1979
  • Raton Tomitosis Score: 22 out of 100
  • Score IMDb to the movie: 5.3 out of 10

"Evil" was released a little late and failed due to the Comedy trend Western, which was started with "Balo Cat" and "Flaming Saddles", and this film with Kirk Douglas is not as interesting as other works of this late artist's career. The plot is not bad. In this Western film, the charming villain of the story plays the main role, and Arnold Schwarzenegger also plays the role of a good man who thwarts the evil plans at every stage of the film. In practice, however, the film repeats the same storyline all the time and has nothing else to say. The film's stunts are impressive, and its humor is unexpectedly ugly and therefore surprisingly effective. "Evil" looks as glamorous as a classic Western.

4. Jingle All The Way Jingle All The Way )

BingMag.com <b>Top</b> 10 <b>Arnold</b> <b>Schwarzenegger</b> <b>Comedy</b> Films

  • Director: Brian Levent
  • Actors: Sinbad, Phil Hartmann , Jake Lloyd
  • Release Date: 1996
  • Raton Tomitosis Score: 20 out of 100
  • IMDb rating for movie: 5.7 out of 10

"Continuous Gearing" Like "Jr. It depends only on one story line, but unlike that film, the jokes and humor of this work are more effective. Schwarzenegger is a family man (and of course very muscular) who works hard and wants to get a toy for his son for Christmas. It turns out that the toy he bought is very valuable, and this leads to a lot of insane controversy. Will the protagonist, like Jim Carrey in the successful Grinch movie, realize that family, life and love are more important than gifts? The answer to this question is clearly yes. This is a long family Comedy film, entertaining and acceptable.

3. Last Action Hero ( Last Action Hero )

BingMag.com <b>Top</b> 10 <b>Arnold</b> <b>Schwarzenegger</b> <b>Comedy</b> Films

  • Director: John McTiernan
  • Actors: Austin O'Brien, Dustin Dance , Tom Nunan
  • Release Date: 1993
  • Raton Tomitosis Score: 40 out of 100
  • IMDb rating to the movie: 6.4 out of 10

The original script of "The Last Action Hero", satire Stunningly suited to the action movies of the 80's, it is full of humorous moments (contrary to the expectations of the audience) and clever. The final film, despite being rewritten by Shane Black (author of "Deadly Weapon") and directed by John McTiernan (director of "Hardcore"), is a confusing and undecided work due to the studio's insistence on rating the film for people over 13 years old. "The Last Action Hero", despite all its difficulties, is an interesting film in which Schwarzenegger, in the role of an action hero, accidentally introduces a real child to his imaginary world. The best moments of this work, like the series "Rick and Morty", have a bitter and special humor, and all the elements of this film are fun in their own way.

2. Kindergarten Cop )

BingMag.com <b>Top</b> 10 <b>Arnold</b> <b>Schwarzenegger</b> <b>Comedy</b> Films

  • Director: Evan Wrightman
  • Actors: Penelope Miller, Pamela Reed, Richard Tyson
  • Release Date: 90
  • Raton Tomitose Score: 51 out of 100
  • strong> IMDb rating for the movie: 6.2 out of 10

in "Kindergarten Police", Schwarzenegger plays a role The police officer plays a tough guy who has to work secretly as a kindergarten teacher to arrest a drug dealer. This hilarious film combines Comedy with action and thriller, just like "Imitation Nun" and "Grandma's House". Fortunately, this film, like these works, is similar to a funny comedy, and its change of tone adds to the charm of this work. Schwarzenegger has an interesting performance in the role of a person who has nothing to do with his place and location, and the action scenes of the film are also attractive.

1. Twins ( Twins )

BingMag.com <b>Top</b> 10 <b>Arnold</b> <b>Schwarzenegger</b> <b>Comedy</b> Films

  • Director: Evan Wrightman
  • Actors: Danny Duito, Kelly Preston, Chloe Webb
  • Release Date: 1988
  • Raton Tomitosis Score: 43 out of 100
  • Score </<strong> IMDb to the movie: 6.1 out of 10

"Twins" in 1988, at least until The much-anticipated sequel to the film, starring the legendary comedian Eddie Murphy, is the culmination of Schwarzenegger's Comedy in cinema. Directed by Ivan Wrightman, Danny DeVito and Schwarzenegger play twins who were separated at birth. If seeing this couple on the cinema screen does not make the audience laugh, then it must be said that nothing is funny for this audience anymore. These heterogeneous couples are extremely stupid and distracted. DeVito and Arnold Schwarzenegger look so engaging and interesting that they make this movie the best Comedy of the Destroyer Star.
