We love spoofs, and Hot Shots! Part Deux is one of the best of all time! Charlie Sheen, Lloyd Bridges and Valeria Golino knock this one right out of the park.
SPOILER ALERT! Watch the movie before proceeding.
Lessons Learned from Hot Shots! Part Deux
Listen to our episode on Hot Shots! Part Deux
Gummy bears, gummy bears! Sprinkles, sprinkles!
Sky: Use Fixodent.
- Take a lesson from President Tug Benson – affix those dentures in place so you don’t freak out Prime Minister “Tojo”.
The ultimate movie prop.
Sky: Choose the table full of kids when you’re eating family style at a Chinese restaurant.
- The President’s line about less than half of the commandos returning reminded Sky of how he chooses his seat at his family’s functions.
Lloyd Bridges (as President Tug Benson) was a shining star. Especially when battling Saddam Hussein.
Sky: Don’t stand below the thing you’re trying to blow up.
- Saddam Hussein stupidly ran under the chopper to blow it up. But, worth it for the piano and the Wicked Witch gag.
You can’t have a Hot Shots! sequel without Ramada (played by the lovely Valeria Golino).
