I'll start with the usual "if you liked..." stuff. Basically this is in the same vein as "Airplane", "Naked Gun" and all those other spoofs out there. This example is a spoof of Top Gun, and stars Charlie Sheen and Jon Cryer (Who now appear together in '2 and a half men') amongst others. Charlie Sheen was born to be in spoof movies, he is truely hilarious. The dialogue is well paced and very funny and i noticed that this film has a lot of visual gags in it, compared to films such as "Airplane". As a spoof film the real question is "is it funny?", and the answer is a resounding yes. This movie is guaranteed laughs...
Hot shots is the best spoof film . its funny from start to finish . i didnt like Charlie Sheen till i seen this and realised what a great actor he is , how he manages to keep a straight face ill never know! . Admiral Benson is one of the funniest characters in it , hes so insane! this movie is great , i recommend anyone go see it! now!
This kooky movie mainly parodies Tom Cruise's Top Gun, but pokes fun at Dances With Wolves, and many others. This is the story of Lt. Topper Harley (played by Charlie Sheen), who is trying to overcome the ghosts that haunt his life. But, the U.S Government needs Topper to fly in a secret mission to destroy a nuclear plant in Iraq. But, between evil capitalists, an insane admiral (Lloyd Bridges), and a band of strange and incompetent pilots, this is bound to be a far from normal mission! [Color, released in 1991, with a running time of 1:24.] This is an extremely funny, extremely offbeat movie from that king of funny, offbeat movies - Jim Abrahams. If you are familiar with Mr. Abrahams' other movies, Airplane and The Naked Gun, then you know just what kind of zaniness he is capable of. Well, this movie lives up to the standards set by those other Abrahams hits. The story is quite funny, with lots of slapstick, sight gags, and all around silliness. My daughter bought this movie with her own money, and enjoyed it immensely. In fact, the whole family did. We highly enjoyed this movie, and highly recommend it!
This is without doubt a 5 star comedy all round, one of the greatest comedy films of all time and always will be, awesome story that loosely follows top gun Hot Shots is ridden with finely crafted comedy and fantastic jokes that cannot be ever done again in the same way, the cast is perfect all-round with great effect with the characters! This is Jim Abrahams baby and im so glad it was made!! Its one of those little gems that you keep forever! the only down side is UK version for some reason has slight cuts, the US version is the proper uncut version and the definitive movie!!
