it's not a typical stallone movie, he's a cop so it's close to being stereotyped, however it's just ridiculous!
to be perfectly honest i did know this before i bought it, my brother and i used to torture each other with this movie, so i bought it as a present.
it's very slapstick but i'm not actually sure that was the intention. the basic story is; Joe (stallone) a cop. is visited by his mother, who interferes in his life, including his job, after she accidentally witnesses a crime, she tries to help her son catch the criminal and land him a promotion. - not really very life like, and the mom is the star of the movie.
An action film with sylvester stallone, and he is not the biggest hero in it, somethings not right there!
