This is a long way from the inspirations of Airplane!

Pretty funny, but too much forced zaniness, jokes upon jokes, many tasteless.

Unlike its grim predecessor, there are at least two chuckles this time round.

It is what it is. The Saddam jokes get a bit tired by movie's end.

Brilliant spoof. Right on target with Rambo III, No Way Out, Basic Instinct, and more. All clever gags.

Is nothing sacred to the makers of Hot Shots! Part Deux? Nope. Not a thing.

Falls into the common sequel rut; it exists but it has no real reason to exist.

On the whole, feels less satisfying than the original.

The only trouble is, too many of these jokes (and there are hundreds) are throwaways.

There are many instances when the film is too obvious in its attempts at humor.

God help me, I laughed and slapped my thighs.

A good deal of the fun is noting the film and/or television allusions and/or rip-offs.

One of the pleasures of watching a spoof like this is to spot the references; it's like a quiz on pop art.
