Review: Stop Or My Mom Will Shoot (1992/PG-13)

So you have Sylvester Stallone as tough LA cop and Estlle Getty as kindly but well meaning mother from Newark, NJ, put them together what could go wrong? Ummmmm well let’s talk about that, shall we? Look this film is bad, just plain bad. Normally bad movies are fun to watch like The Wiz, Problem Child 2, or Mommie Dearest. Stop or my mom will shoot, is a text book example of story, casting, and all around execution of material coming together in such a spectacular miss fire it’s like seeing red sniff it in Super Mario Bros 2 (FYI that’s would be seen in world 3-3.) We think what is most amazing about this film is that it made 40 million in profit at the box office in 1992 dollars, and that the director went on to helm a James Bond film. Look we’re not telling you to see this film, but if you have an appetite for seeing what happens when Hollywood does a major belly flop, it is without a doubt an educational tool.

On a scale of 1.0 to 5.9 it got a 2.3 out of 5.9
