Sorry Arnold I liked It
Verified purchase
I'd watched an interview where Arnold said he set Sylvester up tricking him into taking this role. Sorry, he was the man who could pull if off. It's a ridiculous entertaining movie and Estelle Getty knows who she is. Not too long ago I slipped up and called my 40+ year old son 'punkin' very quickly apologizing before I took the next breath. He came back with "eh, everybody has a ma'.

Funny little movie!
Verified purchase
I know Sly said this was the worst movie he ever made, but there's a point to the movie and its a good comedy to get you laughing about his mom "Tutti". Sly from Rocky and Estelle Getty from the "Golden Girls" are a good mother and son duo. "She's definitely cleaning up the streets" in this movie. A meddling mother and her snappy son is a good feel-good movie. I gave 5 stars because I first saw on tv and eventually wanted to buy it, gotta love moms especially in this comedy.

You ever watch one of those movies where you just can't stop groaning all the way through because you see almost nothing of redeemable value? Well, this is such a film. None of the performances worked, any attempts to make a joke fell flat or were just cringe-worthy, and Estelle Getty's mother character will get on the nerves of even the most patient viewer. She's such a cartoon in this film-using detergents and soap to clean Stallone's pistol, pointing the pistol at Stallone to make his bed, showing everyone his baby pictures (including to some creepy stewardesses who say that he looked attractive in diapers (quite horrible)), and cluelessly buying a machine gun from guys who are clearly dangerous mercenaries-that even the most worrying mothers in real life would look at this and be shocked at how misrepresented they are. Stallone is pathetically lost in this garbage and struggles to keep a straight face in his role. Don't just take my word for it; Stallone himself has said many times that the film is one of the worst of all time. The villains are so insignificant, that they botch killing Stallone and the mother character multiple times, and don't even have that many confrontations with them. There is an amusing performance from Martin Ferraro, however, whom you'll recognize from Jurassic Park (and to give him credit, his part in the film isn't that much of an indignity). What value did anyone working on this film see in it at the time? Why anyone think that a bankrupt concept like an overly worried and ditzy old mother becoming her son's partner on the police force would work? Other than that bankrupt concept, there is nothing unique to the buddy cop genre; the villain plan is just simply running guns and fleeing to South America. The most hilarious thing associated with this film is that Arnold Schwarzenegger tricked Stallone into lobbying for the main role. Arnold read the script and knew that it wasn't worth wasting one's time and reputation on, so he announced that he would take on the role just so Stallone could "steal" it from him. It was all part of a bitter rivalry they shared back in the 80s and 90s. Well, Arnie won that round.

A Great Action Comedy
Verified purchase
A wonderfully entertaining action/comedy that partners a TV icon from Golden Girls and an Action star that needs no introduction. Sly is great showing off his sensitive and comedic side as a down on his luck Detective who desperately needs motherly support. The behind the scenes interviews were the best part of this DVD.

Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot DVD

Can't seem to find on tv, couldn't find the dvd on Netflix to rent so purchased it. It's one of my favs that I watch over and over so well worth the purchase. Sylvester Stallone and Estelle Getty are hilarious together. The storyline is great from beginning to end.
