Doesn't acheive "Airplane!" (or even "Top Secret!") status, but there are more than enough chuckles to warrant a recommendation.

A good parody will make a forceful play for laughs, but this movie practically holds the viewer down in a tickle chair, drilling for any reaction. I admire the determination but the effect has worn off some. Maybe it's Sheen.
