This past weekend I saw the 1992 film "Stop Or My Mom Will Shoot"
starring actress Estelle Getty of the sitcom "The Golden Girls." Out
of her trademark white wig and make-up made to age her for the role,
Getty looked much different than her character Sophia.
In "Stop Or My Mom Will Shoot" Getty plays an overbearing mother,
Tutti, to a police officer, Joe, played by Sylvester Stallone. She
repeatedly meddles in his life and begins to do so concerning his
job as a cop.
The movie was funny, but there were some corny lines that could
have been left out. The plot could have been stronger as well. I
still found it entertaining. Getty carried this film. I wish Getty
had done more films. She is very engaging on screen. To save such a
film with a less than stellar script was an accomplishment. That's
star quality and talent.
