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.

Great parody. Biting spoofs of Dances with Wolves, Top Gun and more.

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

...flags in the middle, some of its gags trying to reach too far for a laugh, but an adequate amount of it is good enough to make up for the rest.
