Contrary to popular belief, Sylvester Stallone can do comedy just fine. His acting performance in "Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot" isn't bad at all, he captures the right tone for the role and has pretty good chemistry with on-screen mother Estelle Getty. Only problem: it just doesn't make a damn bit of difference. This is one of the most poorly-scripted comedies I have ever seen, the best delivery in the world couldn't save this utter void of good material. All the humor is derived from the mother endlessly meddling, and by endlessly I mean the first half hour or so. After that they don't even go for jokes anymore and just have Stallone get into bloodless gunfights like you're watching a TV-edit to "Rambo". It's never quite clear if this movie wants to be a terrible comedy or a terrible police drama, they just keep betting on both horses. There's also a love subplot involved that's mainly there to pad out the running time, and credit where credit is due, it does. It's really boring and all, but that's of minor importance to the makers. It's sorta unfortunate Stallone gave up on comedies after this one, but it's also understandable.
