#3: Arnold Schwarzenegger vs. a bear, Hercules in New York
It’s a much different Hercules than the one portrayed by Lou Ferrigno earlier in this countdown: This Hercules is (intentionally) played for laughs by Arnold Schwarzenegger in one of his first movie roles. The producers quickly realized Arnie’s thick Austrian accent made him unintelligible, so they dubbed him over with some guy who must have done game show announcing for a living (the DVD lets you switch between the dubbed track and Arnold’s original vocal track, and I honestly can’t tell you which one is funnier).
