A research scientist becomes the world's first pregnant man in order to test a drug he and a colleague have designed for expectant women. To carry out the trial, he has an embryo implant, believing that he will only carry the baby for three months – hardly expecting to face the prospect of giving birth.
Surprisingly incoherent and boring
Good concept, poorly executed.
Although it has its amusing moments, in eneral the plot does not convince.
if their story seems completely bonkers, almost like a feverish work of fiction, you ain't heard nothing yet.
Carry means to continue or tote . Pregnant means the vague time before birth when womb buids a fetus, it is being developed. She is the hand, pottery wheel and clay. The agent.Narcissistic misogyny wants to reduce everything into something he can control ,he only one with power or ability.This lacks imagination , from a person who has to rearrange and make a mess when he has nothing new to contribute.
Rating-3/10Junior is a film by Ivan Reitman that not only doesn't play out so well, but also breathes absurdity. The film stars hulking Hollywood star Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito where Arnie gets pregnant, it's the kind of plot made from hell, oh and also Ivan Reitman. It just doesn't work for me and comes off messy at best, it isn't the worst movie of all time and definitely not within comedy, but here are my thoughts below.The plot is just confused and I mean in a way where the story just rides along not really knowing where it is going, can be fun and will be for some, but still not memorable. It isn't funny and for me that is it's greatest sin, the jokes don't come and the direction from Reitman doesn't add anything whatsoever to the writing that strips this of all respect.Schwarzenegger deserves a bit of respect for giving it a go, not in a kind of good way but he tries his hardest and he acts in the only way he knows how. Emma Thompson comes in as the new Doctor on the scene Diana, she is OK here but she doesn't do anything to help, this is the kind of movie that can truly ruin careers, thank god this didn't contain the very very best(at least at the time). I think to really enjoy this you have to not only laugh at a lot, but also be won over by the sweetness of the plot, not by the depth, this is one movie truly lacking in true depth. If you want a serious plot, well this tries to be one but turns out one massive joke, that also isn't funny. Kevin Wade and Chris Conrad don't write this well enough to entertain most, those easily won over then yes, but this just doesn't work right.As the great Roger Ebert once said about Junior "I know this sounds odd, but Schwarzenegger is perfect for the role. Observe his acting carefully in Junior, and you'll see skills that many serious actors could only envy." Now I don't agree with this quote but I see where he is coming from, Arnie seems to as I mentioned before, match the role and he makes the character seem more real(to say he is a huge pregnant man). Danny DeVito doesn't supply him with enough for me though, now DeVito for some is great but I have never loved him, and here he further proves me right.I think finding positives here is as hard as it can get, this isn't the worst film ever but it is hard to find lots and lots of positives. I liked the sets if that is even a real reason, well OK it isn't but It really is hard, The plot I guess is fun(at times) and can as I have also said before, be sweet and Arnie gives his all in making his character more human. Overall a pretty bad movie but one that even today is still remembered fairly well. Reitman directs DeVito and Schwarzenegger again after they came together in "Twins(1988)", but he doesn't succeed in making these two classic although I will say he does make this classic as that movie where Arnold Schwarzenegger gets pregnant, and I'll use my consensus one more time, good for some, not fun for most.
Junior is a mediocre movie with a mediocre storyline and a great comedic cast.This had more potential that what it delivered,it being a reunion for Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito following Twins and also directed by the legendary Ivan Reitman,it's story also had some good potential but it needed to be a lot more goofy and self aware of its ridiculous subject matter in order to be a good comedy.I felt like the movie treated itself too seriously,because I was expecting a story where Schwarzenegger is the worlds first pregnant man to be a really stupid comedy,but instead it was quite dramatic at times and focused on a love story,that was my main problem,it just needed to be more of a comedy.There is great chemistry between Arnold and DeVito and also Emma Thompson,who seemed to get along with both of them and they all seemed to enjoy working together.It has some good moments,but Junior takes itself too seriously and just isn't funny enough to be a comedy I would recommend. A research scientist becomes the worlds first pregnant man in order to test his new drug for expectant women.Best Perfornance: Danny DeVito Worst Performance: Pamela Reed
JUNIORI am a big Arnold Schwarzenegger fan, but this is one of his worst movies... but not as bad as Raw Deal!The movie is about 2 scientists who decide, after their funding has been declined, to impregnate a male.It is a comedy that Arnie made in the 90s, but the problem is, it just doesn't work as well as Twins.I did like it... I just didn't love it.The acting is not that good. Arnold at the beginning of the movie is so stiff and terrible that I thought that this was even worst acting than Mr. Freeze in Batman and Robin.The movie stars Arnold Schwarzenegger, Danny DeVito and Emma Thompson. Danny does a good job. I like Danny a lot. He has made a lot of great films. This is one of Emmas worst performances that I can remember though. Arnie was not bad all the way through though. His acting did improve and he was even really funny in places. It has a lot of classic quotes that I use regularly.The comedy was quite weak most of the movie. There were some funny moments and some even made me laugh out loud, but a lot of the time I didn't find it very funny.The story was entertaining and I didn't hate this movie... I just thought it could have been a lot better.I will give this movie 6 out of 10."My nipples are very sensitive."For more reviews, please like my Facebook page:https://www.facebook.com/pages/Ordinary-Person-Movie- Reviews/456572047728204?ref=hl
