Stop! Or My Daddy Will Shoot

The Idea: a film that parallels Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot

The Tagline: “It’s time for daddy’s little valley girl to take a shot.”

The Plot: A thirty-year-old prima donna is living a deadbeat until suddenly, her father hires her as a police officer. She, however, wants control of the job and puts her 55-year-old father at risk of a nervous breakdown. Will he recover from having to deal with the high maintenance child all over again? Will he slap her in the face and enforce corporal punishment, just as he did when she was a young child?

Last Lines: “Stop! My daddy shot himself!”

  • Quick Recommendations

    No film is recommendable to everyone, because if it strongly appeals to many audiences, it's going to be poorly received by at least one audience. These 25 classics, however, I would recommend to eight and a half, if not nine in every ten people.
