Hot Shots! is directed and co-written by Jim Abrahams, and it stars Charlie Sheen and Cary Elwes in a comedy spoof of Top Gun about a pilot that people think is dangerous, but is really good at his job and gets himself in a love situation with his therapist. In terms of parody wise, I remember this and Part Deux is one of the entertaining spoof movies, and sort of making fun of Top Gun seems to do it well as I only thought it was decent, but very cheesy. The acting is pretty good as they took it serious when dealing with silly stuff that makes it hilarious to watch. The writing by Jim Abrahams and Pat Proft create a lot of jokes, and for the most part, they get a laugh out of me. Even the joke that they repeat themselves are funny as they are out of nowhere, and it's a simple one that brings nothing to the plot, and that's fine. The flying scenes are entertaining to watch while also putting in some interesting jokes that I wouldn't expect. The characters are enjoyably funny to watch, and Hot Shots! is just a great film that is not quite like Airplane!, but is just hilarious enough that it doesn't matter if it is.
