Trivia

This was originally a Spanish film called Run for Your Life (1971). Producer Samuel M. Sherman of Independent-International Pictures bought it for US distribution, but eventually decided that American audiences wouldn't come to see it. He re-edited it, added some new footage with black actors and turned it into a "blaxploitation" actioner, re-naming it "Mean Mother". See more »

Not A Mean Mother, An Embarrassing One
16 November 2001 | by (Benbrook, Texas) – See all my reviews

I can usually find something good, or worthwhile, in most movies. Here, I can say Lucianna Paluzzi's the best thing about this show. BUT, even she couldn't save it. The stunt work was pathetic, I probably did this good, or better, as a kid and this was supposed to professional???!!! Everything was done slowly, without it being slowed down to show the fast action, it was DONE SLOWLY, poorly choreographed and executed. It was just embarrassing. The black guy, who wound up having most of the action/fight scenes, was SO out of shape you could see why his stunt work wasn't better. The acting was on par with the stunt work. If you want to catch another 70's black action flick because you want to have complete knowledge of the genre, here's the worst. If you want something entertaining, get Black Godfather, Cotton Comes To Harlem, or any Fred Williamson flick, these were at least good, and you'll be glad you skipped this one.
