This one's got a putrid 4.0 IMDb rating yet I can't help but like this odd story of an LAPD sgt. who's mother comes to visit from Newark, NJ. She drives him up the wall, shows his baby pictures to total strangers and tells the most embarrassing stories of her son's childhood. Mom gets caught up in her boy's love life (with superior officer Williams), also involves herelf with a potentionally deadly case. Through several well done action scenes we see this senior citizen begin to imagine herself a supercop!
Lots of amusing situations here but no huge laughs, yet you can't help enjoy petite Estelle Getty as Sly's overprotective mom.
Another myth to dispel: people claim that this movie was a commercial failure. Not true, dear readers. While it may have only grossed $28 million domestically (which is actually around the 40 million mark when adjusted for inflation), this rather modestly-budgeted film was a considerable money-maker internationally (which was where Mr. Stallone's bread was buttered for most of the '90s). Why did it do middling box office here in the states? Honestly, the pairing of Sly and 'Golden Girl'Estelle Getty - though comedically inspired and full of potential - was not smart demographically speaking. How many Sly's action fanbase were going to take something like this seriously? Conversely, how many grannies (i.e. the majority of 'Golden Girls' fans) were going to go see a loud, brash action-comedy (featuring a certain amount of violence and bad language)? Neither of the stars' fanbase were on board.
So what does that leave us with? A strangely unengaging hybrid - most of the jokes fall flat, and most of the action sequences feel generic and TV-movieish.Read more ›
Look on the bright side. She's only doing all that because she loves her dear old Son! We all know this movie is a little different then what Stallone is use to, But I'm sure he had a good fun time doing his script. I don't know, I'd have to ask him myself! Bottom line she is desperate to become a part of his society, even if she has to save his life to gain the expression from him that she's looking for!
But would you like being treated like an 8 yr. old or a 7 yr. old?
It was fun to watch!
Sometimes something good will come of it when you got a relative that'll drive you nuts!
