Sylvester Stallone says that there is one film he regrets making.

The Rocky star, 76, is arguably one of the biggest action stars of all time and has an estimated net worth of $400 million

He has starred in successful movies such as Rambo, Cliffhanger and Demolition Man.

However, there is one movie that Stallone has admitted he regrets making.

Watch the trailer for the film below…

Stop Or My Mom Will Shoot stars the Cobra actor as a cop who is visited by his mother – who is played by Estelle Getty (The Golden Girls).

But she soon finds herself embroiled in her son’s case and the pair must work together.

Despite grossing $70 million at the box office, the movie was critically panned by critics and has an unfavourable 14 per cent score on Rotten Tomatoes.

It has been reported that Stallone only took this role because he heard that Arnold Schwarzenegger got offered the role first.

While appearing on Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show in 2015, the Copland actor described The Terminator star as a competitive rival and joked that he ‘hated’ him.

Fallon then asked about a rumour that Schwarzenegger would trick Stallone into doing the movies that he didn’t want to do.

The Creed actor recalls: “Your agent goes ‘You’ve got to do this movie because Arnold is going to do it’.

“And I would go ‘Really? I don’t think Arnold can do this one because he’s playing an American cop and they don’t have German accent’.

“And he goes ‘I’m telling you. If you don’t do Stop Or My Mom Will Shoot he’s in.”

Stallone said that it happened again with the film Rhinestone – a movie in which he has to sing, despite telling Fallon that he can’t sing at all.

Schwarzenegger has also had his say on Stallone’s claim.

Speaking at Beyond Fest, the Commando star says: “I read the script. It was so bad. You know, I’ve also done some movies that went right in the toilet, right?

“That were bad. But this was really bad. So I went in.

“I said to myself, ‘I’m going to leak out that I have tremendous interest’. I know the way it works in Hollywood. I would then ask for a lot of money.

“So then they’d say, ‘Let’s go give it to Sly. Maybe we can get him for cheaper’.”

Despite their competitive rivalry, the pair are close friends and have even starred in The Expendables and Escape Room films alongside each other.

Schwarzenegger even joked that he’s glad that they ended their rivalry otherwise there would’ve been another Stop Or My Mom Will Shoot, as per The Hollywood Reporter.
