A tough police sergeant's mother comes to visit him, and promptly starts trying to fix up his life, much to his embarrassment. For his birthday she buys him a machine gun out of the back of a van, and begins to further interfere with his job and love life, eventually helping him with a case he's on. Written by

The tough Sergeant Detective Joseph Andrew "Joe" Bomowski (Sylvester Stallone) is an efficient cop that has a love affair with his Lieutenant Gwen Harper (JoBeth Williams), but he never proposes her to a serious commitment. When his overprotective mother Tutti Bomowski (Estelle Getty) comes from Newark, New Jersey, to spend a couple of day visiting him, his life turns upside-down. She decides to clean his pistol with bleach and ruins it; so she decides to buy another weapon for Joe and stumbles upon two criminals selling illegal weapons. But there is a shootout and Tutti witnesses a murder. Now she has to stay with Joe since she is a witness, driving him crazy with her interference.
"Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot" is an unfunny and moronic comedy with an imbecile story that does not make laugh. Estelle Getty is awful in the role of Tutti Bomowski, one of the most annoying and silly characters ever. It is impossible to laugh with her attitudes that seem to be symptoms of dementia. My vote is five.
Title (Brazil): "Pare! Senão Mamãe Atira" ("Stop! Otherwise Mom Shoots")
