There was an elaborate scene where Sylvester Stallone's character crashes a garbage truck through the wall of an art gallery that was cut out of this movie. The art gallery owner was played by Scott Shaw. It is said this scene will accompany future releases of this film's DVD. See more »

Here's another one of those "not as bad as people say" movies. I knew it would be. Copping a lot of flack, like being voted worst movie of 1992. How can this be. I admit, it is very corny, but it's aptly funny in a couple of scenes, preferably the jumper one, where the suicide on the ledge victim, desists as getting an earful of Sly's history from his molly coddle mother (Estelle Getty) on a megaphone, while Stallone stays putt, and then CUT. I had wished this scene had kept going, as it would have been interesting to see where see could of taken this. This was a disappointment, on the part of the writers, but time is a factor, as to the progression of astory, for the audience's benefit. Another funny scene has Getty singing an original version of "Wash your gun" as she washes Sly's piece, getting it all spic and span, only with the opposite effect as you can imagine if using detergents, so forth. Getty makes a meal of her role, and Sly's good too, as the tough cop/failed romantic with inadequacies, and Sly shows this well. His captain (love interest Willams who's just broken up with him) is solid, and sadly isn't used enough in this. Getty's dog, Trixie is cute too. The run down of story, though I admit falls weak, as if they were somewhat looking desperately for a plot or more so neglected story, has Getty, a witness, to a shootout, involving a bungling duo of arms dealers, where a nasty looking Uzi is recovered from Getty, as looking over some arms, prior, to replace Sly's ruined pistol. Stop Or My Mom Will Shoot is by no means great, or even good. It's a lighthearted entertaining comedy, and that's it, that evidently shows Stallone can be funny, although there's almost zero chemistry between Sly and Getty. Although I saw it for the first time the other day, it looked cheaply shot, but it is a cheap movie, which I'm finally glad I had gotten around to see, and Getty I must admit is a really bad shot. Trivia fact: In Adelaide SOMMWS came out exactly five years to the day after Over The Top, both movies involving trucks.
