Hot Shots/Hot Shots! part Deux
2 films that spoofed the entire genre of war films,Hot Shots! and Hot Shots! part Deux rips into the classic film genre with zeal...the first lampoons the classic Top Gun film with style,leaving you with plenty of laughs from both the spoken and the visual aid gags.
The second sends up all the classic war films,starting with kickboxer,then onto Rambo, to scenes from apocalypse now and many other war based films(look out for all the cameo's from other major stars and other films,like T2)
for comedy and laugh-out-loud factor,this box set certainly is...a Hot Shot!
2 Funny films worth a look to cheer you up
Hot Shots is a slapstick comedy in the vein of Airplane/Naked Gun, that spoofs the Rambo, and military films of its time.
Like most such films it is a hit sometimes with its jokes, others just totally fall flat.
Worth a watch for giggle, it is only short.
Hot Shots Part deux sees the return of Topper Harley, and some more fun and adventures sending up films of its time.
Most of the jokes you saw in Hot Shots, but again, worth a watch for a giggle, and they are only short films.
Hot Shots / Hot Shots Part Deux
having seen both the films when they were released in cinemas,thoroughly enjoying the comical talents of charlie sheen in the leading roles, it was lloyd bridges who stole both films, with his side splitting portrayal of firstly a navy admiral, then as president in part two.
hot shots is a spoof of the blockbuster 'top gun', whilst part two is a spoof of the 'rambo' movies. if you liked the 'airplane' movies - you will love these.
having recently watched 'hot shots' on tv with my eight year old son, who was in tears at lloyd bridges continuingly getting bumped and bashed, asked me to buy the film.
browsing ebay was delighted to see that both films came as a two disc set in one package, and with the price well under a tenner - too good too miss.
i have watched them so many times since i bought them i now know them word for word, and still have to watch when my son plays them.
so many one-liners and great acting, its a great pick me up guaranteed to make you chuckle.
if you have a wicked sense of humour you cant go wrong with these two films....
Must have films to unwind a bad day!!
| Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
I bought this DVD set as I never get bored of watching Hot Shots...Topper Harley (played by Charlie Sheen)..is an all time great character and will have you laughing from start to finish. I liked how these films continue to bring on quick laughs like a conveyor belt and there is no negative comment about either of these films. If you like comedies such as Naked Gun, Police Academy and National Lampoons you'll love this!!
What a classic! A laugh a minute comedy fest is a spoof of "Top Gun".Topper Harley is reluctant to join the Air Force because of past events, but he is eventually persuaded.The jokes are often on the bullseye and Bridges steals the show as an amazingly incompetent Officer whose never landed a plane in his life.
