Hot Shots! Part Deux

Charlie Sheen returns in this sequel of Hot Shots! (1991) that actually meets the comedic quality the original has to offer. Rather than spoofing Top Gun (1986), however, it concentrates on Rambo. I noticed it poking fun at Home Alone (1990), Apocalypse Now (1979) with a cameo from Martin Sheen, Star Wars (1977), The Lady and the Tramp (1955), Saddam Hussein, Basic Instinct (1992), and even "American Gladiators!" If you can possibly imagine it, Hot Shots! Part Deux is more moronic than the original, but it contains more belly laughs.
