These should have been Arnie films

An idea for a poll. Which film would you have cast Arnold Schwarzenegger in to make it better or (unintentionally) funnier?

The film would have been perfect for some Arnie-isms, in fact it had a couple of them throughout which would have been class in his Austrian accent and dead pan delivery.

Hi Commodore Boz,

Welcome to the IMDb Poll message board. Thank you for your poll suggestion.

Your list needs a discussion link back to this thread. I provide details in a future post.

Somewhat tongue-in-cheek, the first role I thought of would be a reprise of John Wayne as Temujin - later Genghis Khan in The Conqueror (1956).

Commodore, your poll title may be a little too long, perhaps removing the words "Leading Film" could make it shorther without sacrificing content and that way it could have a better chance to be featured in the homepage.
If you like it as it is, you may choose to keep it that way

Naw Too much testosterone turned him into a dope. Which, to be fair, he was before coming to the US. I admit I was as much a sexist as any 20 something white male growing up in the 80's with the requisite man crush on AS. I'm now 65 and eventually learned, that the way white males treat those who are not white males, is mostly wrong. BTW AS would have been hilarious in "Kindergarten Cop". Maybe. Oh wait..

Arnie has a thick accent and kinda looks dopey but I don't think he actually is. For once, he knew exactly about his limits as an actor and used them to his advantage, which is something the likes of JCVD and Seagal never remotely achieved. I am not going to cite the political career in his favor but he was surely more on line with science than large parts of his party. And this statement here is a sign of rare empathy and intelligence coming from a successful person.
