I love Arnold Shwartzeneggar movies. I think Suburban Commando is the one where he fights against the drug cartels in the suburbs.

Yup, that’s the one. Arnold goes after a druglord played by Danny DeVito who is harassing a local pharmacy owner played by Gregory Peck. Penelope Ann Miller plays Peck’s attractive young niece who falls in love with both Arnold and DeVito, thus creating a bloody love triangle.
I thought it was Hulk Hogan’s rise to fame when he’s a space advenger who gets trabbed in the suburbs like He-Man in the Masters of the Universe movie. Plus, Christopher Lloyd shows up to play the token worst dad EVER! Why do all kids movies feature horrible fathers. That must be why there’s so many disgruntled screenwriters.

Indeed Tebor, you are right. Cybersst was being facetious and I was playing along. Of course, Hulk Hogan’s first starring role was in the cheesy 1989 movie No Holds Barred where he played (suprise!) a wrestler. Unfortunately, that movie is currently only on VHS, not to mention out of print, while Suburban Commando is a staple of Wal*Mart bins.
