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."

Following the immense success of Airplane!, Top Secret! an... read more

"Re-watch - Dec. 9th Finally I found a film that made me laugh often & heartily, which was just what I needed. I think this was my 4th time watching Hot Shots!, & the upside to having not seen it too many times over the years is that the jokes still mostly land. Lloyd Bridges steals every scene he's in, though that also is clearly by design. I noticed some details I don't think I'd caught before & just had a blast with the entire thing. As a result I'll probably watch the sequel too before the "
