Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot

Critics Consensus

Thoroughly witless and thuddingly unfunny, Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot gives its mismatched stars very little to work with - and as a result, they really don't work.

Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot Photos

Movie Info

The carefully maintained ultra macho image of a gruff L. A. police officer (Sylvester Stallone) crumbles when he gets a visit from his meddlesome, over-protective mommy (Estelle Getty) in this action comedy. Things get really hopping when she takes her meddling too far and begins interfering with his job.

Stallone has developed into an accomplished comedy actor, knowing to react to situations rather than cause them. Getty has the role of her lifetime, spouting one-liners with fine precision.

Most of the blame for this unimaginative effort can be attributed to the script, but Spottiswoode's flat direction doesn't help.

This mom is impossible without being funny.

May 20, 2003 | Rating: 1/5

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.

I laughed occasionally, but in pain.
