A tough detective's mother comes to visit him and begins to meddle in his life and career
Director Spottiswoode invests the action sequences — Mom, as you’ll have guessed, is a slick car chase driver — with as much speed and energy as he can, but the one-joke material is depressingly thin for the man who made Under Fire. Stallone is reduced to antics like a dream sequence in which he’s wearing nappies, and he comes off a faintly desperate, hulking second banana to the tiny, wisecracking Getty. Even at only 87 minutes, life is too short to sit through this.
