Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot [DVD] [1992]

  • SKU: 6171144
  • Release Date: 01/20/2004
  • Rating: PG
For a brief period in the early '90s, Sylvester Stallone attempted to make himself a viable comedic lead. Widely considered to be the most disastrous of these films, Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot comes to DVD with a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. The closed-captioned English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital Surround. Spanish and French subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include the standard making-of featurette, an alternate ending for the film, and the theatrical trailer. This is an inexpensive title that will be of interest primarily to hardcore Stallone fans or those with a taste of infamous cinematic turkeys.

    Synopsis


    Stop! or My Mom Will Shoot
    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. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      First I will point out the main role of the film is not Sylvester Stallone aka Rocky. but the lady playing his mother says it all. by her always being in the wrong place at the wrong time and the conflict role of how small she is and how big stallone is one of the things that makes it so funny I will have to agree this may be one of those movies you have to watch a second time because you may have missed something the first time. I is a very funny flict

      Incredibly Bad Movie, But Better than Expected Dvd

      'Stop or My Mom Will Shoot' is probably Sylvester Stallone's worse film ever ('Rhinestone' would be a close second). However, this is a very well put together dvd considering the quality of the film. Widescreen with a few notable bonuses.
