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.

Critic Reviews for Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot

All Critics (24) | Top Critics (6)

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.

New York Times
Top Critic

As irksome as it is, the concept is actually better for Stallone than the premises of his earlier awful romps.

Washington Post
Top Critic

It is moronic beyond comprehension, an exercise in desperation during which even Sylvester Stallone, a repository of self-confidence, seems to be disheartened.

Chicago Sun-Times
Top Critic

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.
