Great movie!
22 July 2004 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

I think Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot is a very good movie. What the heck is so bad and wrong with it? It has a very good cast which includes Sylvester Stallone, Estelle Getty, JoBeth Williams, Roger Rees, Martin Ferrero, Gailard Sartain, J. Kenneth Campbell, Richard Schiff, and Ving Rhames! I thought it was weird that Martin Ferrero and Richard Schiff were in this film together because later on they would be in two Jurassic Park films only not together. Why is this film on the IMDb Bottom 100 List #64? The film is produced by Ivan Reitman and is directed by Roger Spottiswoode! The music is very good by excellent composer Alan Silvestri! I think this movie is so hilarious. Sylvester Stallone and Estelle Getty worked so good together. I think this film is really funny plus this film reminded Me a bit of the classic movie Kindergarten Cop! I strongly recommend this movie so do yourself a favor and ignore all of the bad comments and watch this extremely funny film today!
