On "Siskel & Ebert At The Movies", Roger Ebert bluntly said "This is one of the worst films I've ever seen. It has no funny moments. It has no interesting moments." See more »

Why didn't you answer when I called?
That was you? You never called.
That was me, why didn't you pick up the phone?
Every year when I'm about to come out to visit, you call and say it's not a good time, so I decided not to answer the phone this time in case you called.

The original UK cinema version was cut by 6 secs by the BBFC to remove shots of a man's hand being crushed in a door and to edit the sounds of a man's scream and crash as he is thrown from a window. All video releases were uncut. See more »
Sylvester Stallone is an iconic action star and Estelle Getty was a hilarious, sarcastic and witty Golden Girl. Put the two together and you'll get yourself one charming action-comedy, where tough Los Angeles cop Sgt. Joe Bomowski (Stallone) gets a visit from his nurturing, feisty and fearless mother Tutti (Getty), who beings to meddle in Joe's life affairs, interfering with his police work and love life.
There are some very oddball and corny humor with some campy dialog in the movie, at mostly the expense of Stallone and Getty. The supporting actors were given the back burner and the villains were unforgettable. And yet, while the plot goes at a very steady-pace with limited action, I've found the comedic chemistry between Stallone and Getty, which make up most of the movie, to be pretty entertaining and fun to watch and is, at times, heartwarming. Getty's obsessive behavior to be very baby-nurturing to Stallone as he responds in his frustrated way is itself classic. And, it's not everyday you see a petite, motherly, 68 year-old lady brandish a gun and deal with gangsters!
While not an action flick that would blow you out of your seats, you will get several laughs out of this movie.
