Ivan Reitman (1994)

PG Certificate


Our Score
Arnold Schwarzenegger reunites here with the Twins team of Danny DeVito and director Ivan Reitman for another comedy romp designed to show the lighter side of the action-movie superstar. Schwarzenegger and DeVito play struggling medical researchers working on a new fertility drug. When they lose their grant, in desperation Schwarzenegger injects himself with the experimental solution and, lo and behold, ends up pregnant. It's pretty much a one-joke concept, but Reitman milks it for all it's worth, and DeVito and Schwarzenegger look like they're having a ball. Only Emma Thompson as a fellow scientist and love interest looks out of place in an underwritten role.


A fertility expert pioneers a treatment enabling men to become pregnant and carry babies to full term. When the authorities cancel funding for the research, he decides to test it on himself, but gives little thought to how difficult it will be to keep it a secret. The situation is further complicated when he starts to fall for the woman whose child he is carrying. Comedy, with Arnold Schwarzenegger, Danny DeVito, Emma Thompson and Frank Langella.
