PG-13 | | Action, Comedy
"Rambo" parody in which Topper Harley leads a rescue team into Iraq to save Iraqi war prisoners and all of their previous rescue teams.
Ryan Stiles also appeared in the original Hot Shots! (1991), but played a different character. He played a recurring character on Sheen's Two and a half Men.
These men have taken a supreme vow of celibacy, like their fathers, and their fathers before them...
Topper gets shot in the arm, and you can see through his arm. When he talks to Ramada, the hole is gone.
Secret of "The Crying Game": She's a guy
The film has had a checkered UK censorship history. For its original cinema release, 54 secs were cut for a 12 certificate, removing all footage of nunchakus during the Rambo scene and editing the spoof Basic Instinct (1992) sex scene in the apartment. The video was rated PG and the cuts were expanded with a further 1 min 7 secs of additional edits to remove a single use of 'fuck' and the complete removal of the bedroom scene. The same print was used as a basis for the PG-rated DVD, although the distributors made a further two minutes of edits including the removal of Ramada's line "Wild, free, passionate, unbridled sex. I'd fondle you in ways you can't imagine" and even the already PG approved scene in the limousine. The UK Blu-ray version reinstates the previously cut footage and was passed 12 uncut in 2013.
