Stop! or My Mom Will Shoot (1992)
Despite his status as a major action star, Sylvester Stallone has made a number of attempts to remodel himself as a comic actor; one of his more infamous efforts in this direction was Stop! or My Mom Will Shoot!. Police detective Joe Bromowski (Sylvester Stallone) has just broken off his relationship with his girlfriend (and fellow police officer) Gwen Harper (JoBeth Williams), so Joe's mother Tutti (Estelle Getty) decides it's time to pay him a visit. Tutti proceeds to make Joe's life miserable by nagging him about his clothes, cleaning his apartment, washing his gun, tagging along on investigations, and somehow getting involved with a gun-running organization that the police have been trying to infiltrate. After this film, Stallone would stay away from comedy until 1997, when he played a cameo in another unenthusiastically received film, An Alan Smithee Film -- Burn, Hollywood, Burn. … More

Critic Reviews for Stop! or My Mom Will Shoot
Most of the blame for this unimaginative effort can be attributed to the script, but Spottiswoode's flat direction doesn't help.
It is moronic beyond comprehension, an exercise in desperation during which even Sylvester Stallone, a repository of self-confidence, seems to be disheartened.
As irksome as it is, the concept is actually better for Stallone than the premises of his earlier awful romps.
The doting-mother jokes are all familiar, but rendered with an earnest quality, as though a parent-offspring mediation group is to convene after the film ends.
Gag. Stallone's character should have been shot by overbearing Getty Mom.
Sly is well meaning but just misses the mark.
Stallone & Getty? No magic here.
Further proof that Sly should stick to action.
Being shot might be preferable to sitting through this
Stop! making lousy comedies or you'll permanently damage your career.
Sometimes, you just have to sit back and wonder what Stallone was thinking.
I can't believe I watched this.
If your idea of fun is seeing Sylvester Stallone in a diaper, his latest film should send you into fits of ecstasy.
