Howdy all you Supercultists out there on the interwebz!
I’m Bad Movie Professor Cameron Coker (BS in “Car Chases” with a minor in ”YOUR MOM”) and I’ll be posting my hype-tacular speeches every week along with some long lost speeches from past Supercult Shows!
From June of 2013, it’s the speech for Stop! Or My Mom will Shoot!
When tough detective Sgt. Joe Bomowski’s mother comes to visit him, she promptly starts trying to fix up his life, much to his embarrassment. Tutti Bomowski can’t help meddling with Joe’s home, his job, and even his love life, but when she witnesses a crime in Joe’s town Joe is forced to team up with her to lay down the law. Now, it’ll take every ounce of police training (and patience) Joe has in order to save his town, and keep his mom out of danger. Criminal’s beware! Mrs. Bomowski is on the case!! It’s the ultimate Mother-Son crime-fighting duo in, Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot!
Starring Sylvester Stallone as Sgt. Joe Bomowski, and Estelle Getty as Tutti Bomowski, this may be the worst movie we’ve seen this year, statistically speaking. Director Roger Spottiswoode, who had success in the 90’s with 007: Tomorrow Never Dies, and Scharzenegger’s The 6th Day, probably got a name for himself in 1989 when he directed Tom Hanks in Turner & Hooch…which is probably why he was ok with directing this piece of garbage in 1992, which swaps Hanks with Stallone and a lovable dog with Sophia from Golden Girls.
Weirdly enough, when Estelle Getty found out about the plans for the movie, she said that she would only do it if there were no guns in it. So, the producers simply lied to her (and told her that there would be no guns in the movie) in order to get her to sign on. Either they are really good liars or she’s incredibly stupid, because not only is the movie riddled guns but every poster for this movie shows HER HOLDING A GUN.
The late Roger Ebert gave it half a star saying, “Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot” is one of those movies so dimwitted, so utterly lacking in even the smallest morsel of redeeming value, that you stare at the screen in stunned disbelief. It is moronic beyond comprehension, an exercise in desperation during which even Sylvester Stallone, a repository of self-confidence, seems to be disheartened.” Not only was the movie nominated for Worst Picture at the Hastings Bad Cinema Society’s 15th Stinker’s Bad Movie Awards in 1992, but it is confirmed that Stallone considers this the worst film he’d ever done.
With a hellish %4 on Rotten Tomatoes, Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot, beats out Jingle All the Way’s comparatively presentable %17 and claims the title of worst rated movie we’ve seen this year. Here at Supercult we don’t give you simply mediocre movies. We don’t even give you bad movies. Supercultists expect more from us…You…Deserve More.
So tonight we present Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot, or as I like to call it: “Rambo and his Mom Versus the Mob”, the only movie we know of where the original Jungle Warrior teams up with a Golden Girl to clean up the streets. If that doesn’t get you excited, I don’t know what will!
It’s not so bad it’s good! It’s so gut-wrenchingly awful, that it’s mind-blowingly awesome!
The Supercult Show is proud to present Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot!
