Not as funny as I remember

A great comedy in its own time whos jokes are steadily losing their punch as technology and culture progress. Still, it sits as the first "Gulf War" film in what is still an exclusive club.

Funny film a little silly but it works, Charlie Sheen was great fun but the jokes soon run dry.

For every funny gag there are five that are lame, which is a big problem when there's nothing else to sink your teeth into.

This is a parody of the super serious Tom Cruise vehicle Top Gun of the 1980's, which is to say that the material practically writes itself. At the time of its release it was seen as crude but funny, but judging by and compared to most of the current comedic releases its practically 1950's era clean cut and Charlie Sheen seems like the typical 50's era jock. It's shocking, I know. But you will chuckle. You will.

As far as spoof films go, Hot Shots is one of the better ones and it is still pretty funny today.

one of the better spoofs out there, Sheen makes for an excellent Tom Cruise in this take on Top Gun. The film jumps from joke to joke with total ease and should be a blue print to future filmmakers attempting such genre films. The sequel had a hard time topping this one.

"Hot Shots!" comes during the peak of spoof films, just before the downhill disasters and right after the best of the best. With clever jokes throughout, this loosely-Top-Gun-based spoof is not one to miss. Charlie Sheen (Topper) leads this film into the hilarious picture that it is, due to the films that inspired it. The jokes run a mile a minute, the action is just as impressive (intentionally cheesy at times), and the cast all do their very best to give the audience a great laugh. With direction that knows exactly when and where to land the jokes, there is talent surrounding this film everywhere. In the end, I would highly recommend this spoof movie, and that is saying something, because it is extremely rare for spoof movies to be this consistently funny. "Hot Shots!" may have a few too many dumb gags, but the remainder of them are way too clever to pass up on. If you have not had the chance to see this film, it comes highly recommended.

After watching Airplane and Top Secret i was expecting an exhausting amount of puns and bad jokes. This was just stupid, not funny at all. What was so great, the eyes of my father joke??

Hot Shots is a spoof on several films, but is primarily as spoof on the hit Top Gun. Charlie Sheen is Topper Harley who returns to the U.S. Air Voice and is equivalent to Tom Cruise's character. His rival in Iceman is Cary Elwes. Several gaffs and nonsense are spliced in between, but this movie could be better.

This is a perfect example of a legendary spoof!

Can we expect any less from Abrahams? The mind behind some great spoof/parody movies doesn't disappoint in yet another parody. This film is a military spoof of films like top gun and it's fantastic.

Humour doesn't always date well
