Stop, or mother shoots: how Arnold Schwarzenegger convinced Stallone to make his worst film
News author: Deborah Ross / 2020-05-08 12:57:21Here's how Arnold Schwarzenegger tricked Sylvester Stallone into making his worst film: Stop, or Mama Shoot.
Apparently, it would have been Arnold Schwarzenegger who tricked Sylvester Stallone into making his worst film, Fermati, or Mom Shoots. The action comedy was a burning flop at the box office and Stallone himself considers it the worst film of his career, but apparently the fault would not be all his.
Stop, or Mom Shoot is not remembered as a milestone in the history of cinema. Stallone himself called it «one of the worst films in the entire solar system, including alien productions that we have never seen». The film was a buddy-cop movie in which Stallone was joined by the lively Estelle Getty in her mother's shoes. Both Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger have admitted that Schwarzy would be directly responsible for the bad choice.
Apparently the role was first offered to Arnold Schwarzenegger, but after reading the script he immediately understood that the project was not worth mentioning. So Schwarzy, thinking of his rival Stallone, let the news leak that he was interested in the role. When this was offered to Sylvester Stallone, with the idea of beating Schwarzenegger in mind, he accepted. Schwarzenegger was quite satisfied that he had deceived his friend, and as expected Fermati, or mom shoots turned out to be a colossal flop.
