It probably suffered from me seeing the similar "Them" the night before, but it also seemed to drag in a few places, especially when Liv was crawling around (no pun intended). Also irks me when characters could have done something obvious (like fleeing their home) and been okay.

(de) wrote: Throughout all of Sylvester Stallone's career, there has never been a film he has regretted more than Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot, a film with a laughably awful concept and director Roger Spottiswoode who has seldom made a good film throughout almost all of his career. So it sounded almost like a satire of Sylvester Stallone's career, and I would not miss any of his films.The thing with Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot is that the jokes are so terrible that they are hilarious. Everything was so pathetically written that I laughed at the idea that somebody would have actually put them in a film, and it was just hilarious. And because of that, I actually found myself laughing at the film. In a film where jokes are so stupid and unfunny that they become unexpected hilarious entertainment, Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot is one of the prime examples of the genre.The idea of forming a buddy cop movie about an aggressive police officer and his own mother sinks into even more ridiculous territory than director Roger Spottiswoode's previous effort to team up Tom Hanks with a dog for Turner and Hooch. And it is hilarious how ridiculous it is. I mean, it's a childish story about a boy having trouble coping with his overprotective mother except that in this situation he is a police officer played by Academy Award nominated action hero Sylvester Stallone. And the fact that it is so clearly crazy, senseless and ridiculous makes it all the more entertaining as a film that is practically so bad that it is good.The thing is that a plot this bad has little chance to succeed, but even Roger Spottiswoode knows that and attempts to make the most of it. While the jokes are not likely to find success with critics or a lot of viewers, I was very surprised to find myself entertained by them. I mean I knew they were stupid and cliche like they were written for a Saturday morning cartoon, but I still laughed at them for actually being there and for being so bad that they were funny. The cartoonish elements continued on into the musical score which is very childish but makes things have the light comedic feel they really need.There is no denying the fact that Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot is problematic. I mean it is so stupid, and the comedy is so childish that its appeal is obviously limited. And the repetitive nature of it ensures that there really is not a spot of originality in the film, so Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot is easy to see as a bad film. But the fact that it was so ridiculously written is likely to get to many viewers. The script in Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot is so hilariously stupid and is clearly deserving of criticism because it is immensely ridiculous. The stupid, childish and cartoonish one liners and so pathetically paper-thin that they are essentially impossible to work with. Yet somehow, in some way, the cast of Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot manage to actually work it into being funny material, even if it is funny because of how dumb it is. If you can really sit back and lower your standards to the level of Denzel Washington's film Heart Condition in Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot, there is a chance you will enjoy it. I know I did, and not just because I'm an avid fan of Sylvester Stallone.Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot is clearly the most ridiculous buddy cop film I've ever seen, but it is far from the worst. See, I actually laughed at it, and Roger Spottiswoode did everything he could to make the concept convincing by giving a great production design to the film and some colourful scenery, as well as some good cinematography which captures everything well and timely editing. And all this can be boasted in the action scenes. While there isn't too much action, there are some moments of it and it is somewhat entertaining. So Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot does have what it takes to succeed as a buddy cop film.But what really takes the cake in Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot is that despite the ridiculously low quality of the script, the actors manage to actually work it really well.Sylvester Stallone is an actor I find to be massively underrated and rarely appreciated for his comedic talents such as in Grudge Match and Tango and Cash. And while Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot is not as funny as either, he essentially parodies himself in his lead role in Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot. He basically makes a satire of his whole career, and it is actually pretty funny to watch. He delivers his lines with his natural action hero charisma, and despite winning the Golden Raspberry Award for Worst Actor, his performance was barely worth a nomination for such an award. He manages to make the comedic elements of Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot succeed more than they potentially could have, and so it is funny to see him up there.And Golden Girls star Estelle Getty is perfect for the role. While her character is absolutely ridiculous, she is very convincing as the mother of Sylvester Stallone's character and the two share a fairly funny chemistry. She has all the aspects of a stereotypical mother figure, and when the time comes she goes over the top into the stereotype and establishes some laughs for viewers. She steps into the role with ease and manages to work the comedic material with her own charm, serving as a viable benefit to the cast as the titular mother in Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot. I was pleased with her performance and had a good few laughs thanks to her.JoBeth Williams and Ving Rhames make decent additions to the cast as well. So while it is every bit as stupid as the title and plot would suggest, Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot is a ridiculously bad comedy which becomes funny because of its stupidity and has surprisingly dedicated cast members including a great duo of Sylvester Stallone and Estelle Getty.

With stellar and memorable performances by Nargis, Raaj Kumar, and Sunil Dutt, "Mother India" is a Bollywood zeitgeist that can be looked back on as a reminder of exceptional filmmaking and the predestined strives of life - and especially those of a "mother."
