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.
In the film, the body count is compared to the films "Robocop" and "Total Recall". Both films were directed by Paul Verhoeven and Miguel Ferrer (Harbinger) starred in "Robocop" as Bob Morton.
Col. Denton Walters: No, thank you, sir.
Tug Benson: Young lady?
Michelle Rodham Huddleston: No, thank you, sir.
Tug Benson: No, I was just offering him a young lady.
At formal affairs, President Benson is repeatedly announced as, "The President of the United States, Thomas Benson." The Japanese Prime Minister is similarly announced by his name. This is incorrect protocol. Heads of state are announced by their titles only, e. g. "The President and Mrs. Benson", and "The Prime Minister of Japan and Mrs. Soto".
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.
