Overview

Movie references, sight gags, silly puns, and double entendres abound in Hot Shots! Part Deux, Jim Abrahams' sequel to Hot Shots -- only now the object of the skewering is the Stallone Rambo movies instead of Top Gun. Charlie Sheen returns as the lunk-headed Topper Harley, who has retreated to a Buddhist monastery after being dumped by Ramada Rodham Hayman (Valerie Golino). In this far-off retreat, the monks have "taken a vow of celibacy, just like their fathers and their fathers before them." But Topper bulks up and goes back into action when his superior officer, Colonel Denton Walters (Richard Crenna) is captured by a Saddam Hussein look-alike, missing somewhere between "Iraq and a Hard Place." Topper charges into Iraq (after barreling through a Beverly Hills barbecue) along with sexy CIA operative Michelle Rodham Huddleston (Brenda Bakke) in tow, his guns ablazing.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
While less critically acclaimed than its prequel, Hot Shots! Part Deux performed marvelously at the box office by earning a healthy 38 million dollars. Director Jim Abrahams continued to mine the material that he had perfected with Jerry and David Zucker in films like Airplane (1980) and Top Secret (1984). Both Charlie Sheen, who offers a perfect send-up of all things macho, and Italian actress Valeria Golino, whose deadpan delivery aptly matches the hero's, reunite from Hot Shots! (1991). There is also a nice cameo by the hero's father, Martin Sheen, afloat on the river and apparently still stuck on the set of Apocalypse Now (1979). The lack of plot and nonstop gags align this movie with 1930s classics like the Marx Brothers' Duck Soup (1933) and W.C. Fields' The Bank Dick (1940). Reviewers generally enjoyed Hot Shots! Part Deux's parody of movies like Rambo III (1988) and Lady and the Tramp (1955), though many felt that it lacked the originality and pizzazz of earlier Abrahams and Zucker films.
