Storyline

Topper Harley is found working as an odd-job-man in a monastery. The CIA wants him to lead a rescue mission into Iraq, to rescue the last rescue team, who went in to rescue the last rescue team who... who went in to rescue hostages left behind after Desert Storm. The President is Tug Benson, who also likes to be in on the action. Basically, it's a send-up of all the big shoot-em-up Rambo/Robocop/T2/Commando-type movies. Written by Rob Hartill

Trivia

At one point during the sequence which displays an on-screen body count tally, the movie boasts an ostensibly higher number of deaths than Robocop (among other famous shoot'em ups). Miguel Ferrer, who plays Harbinger in this movie, also starred in Robocop , and ended up 1 out that film's 30 strong body count. See more »

Goofs

During the presidential groundbreaking ceremony, all presidents but President Ford get hit by Benson's shovel. Despite being uninjured, he also collapses to the ground. This probably is not an error, but a reference to Gerald Ford's history of accidental falls during his presidency, especially as the actor playing him says "Whoops!" immediately before falling over.

Quotes

President Thomas 'Tug' Benson: Gotcha! Listening at the door, huh? Well, Walters, looks like we've got our saboteur.
Col. Denton Walters: That's your wife, sir.
President Thomas 'Tug' Benson: Yeah, so it is. Lavinia. You're looking as lovely as the day we met.
[to Walters]
President Thomas 'Tug' Benson: Find out what she knows.

The under-appreciated masterpiece of the 1990s.
8 December 2007 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Let it be etched on stone: Since HOT SHOTS! PART DEUX was released American comedy cinema has been in a steep decline. Part of the reason for this is that HOT SHOTS! PART DEUX is an Everest of film-making that has yet to been scaled since. And once you reach the peak the only way is down. HOT SHOTS! PART DEUX has everything. It is the most consistently side-splittingly funny film since Chaplin and Keaton at their peak. It is the most devastating and uplifting story of love, war and sacrifice since CASABLANCA and it has rip-roaring action scenes (Die! Energizer! Bunny! Die!) on par with the mighty movies it is (lovingly) parodying. Charlie Sheen, despite his off-screen propensities, has always been an agreeable screen presence and here he delivers his performances for the ages. Valeria Golino is a goddess for all the ages and also displays impeccable comedic skills. She also kicks a considerable amount of butt without ever losing her grace and femininity. This is quite possibly the last great American female role with substance to it and sadly none have close since.

When people consider the great sequels of all time, usually they pick THE GODFATHER PART II. Then I think to myself - Why pick the three-hour plus GODFATHER PART II when a hundred times more out of the 90 minute HOT SHOTS PART DEUX? Does THE GODFATHER PART II have Al Pacino using a chicken as an arrow? No! So when you are looking at your shiny DVD collection and thinking "I think I'll watch a GODFATHER movie" my advise is to pick up HOT SHOTS PART DEUX and watch it... twice. The only way this film could be any better is if Miguel Ferrer had more screen time. That guy is a Plato of modern times. "War. It's fantastic!" Even Rowan Atkinson is funny in this film. Let's see Ingmar Bergman pull that feat off!
