about the movie
19 April 2011 | by See all my reviews

I think the movie is funny, despite Sly says it's the worst movie he has ever made! It's the first Stallone movie I've seen, so I am emotionally devoted to it! Estelle Getty is so cheerful, full of life and energy and Sly is sexy! If only it was 1992 and he was my man:) It's not fair that the film won Razzie for worst actor, screenplay and supporting actress! Well, maybe it didn't deserve Oscar, but it didn't deserve Razzie either! Besides, compared to movies of today Stop... is just genius! Turned me back in time when music and cinema were just another! Rest in peace, Estelle Getty! And Sylvester is one of the greatest actors of all time!
