Out of respect to this spoof cult classic, I think I was being a little generous with my star rating...Cheap laughs, combined with a thin plot leave this one far from the stature of a Naked Gun, but in the end, it remains a reference in the spoof genre.

A parody movie before the sucky parodies

Older parody movies were great in taking blockbuster hits and making fun of them without most of the jokes being over the top sex jokes, adding drugs, or cussing all the time. And Hot Shots! is one of those great older parody movies.
Taking a lot from Top Gun, Hot Shots! has Charlie Sheen playing a hot shot fighter pilot, Topper Harley, who's father was a fighter pilot and was rumored to ha... read more

Consistently hilarious, superior spoof

"My father used to say that not playing to win is like sleeping with your sister. Sure she's a great piece of tail, with a blouse full of goodies, but... it's just illegal. Then you get into that whole inbred thing. Kids with no teeth who do nothing but play the banjo... eat apple sauce through a straw... pork farm animals."

"8/7/17 Not half as funny as I remember it, Hot Shots relies far too heavily on slapstick than the clever wordplay of Airplane! Charlie Sheen plays a fighter pilot who returns to flying after an accident involving his father. Plenty of film references including Top Gun and Fabulous Baker Boys but often than not, the timing is off and the gags too obvious. One of those occasions where the memory is better than the reality.
