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.

Its a piece of art, designed for one thing; making you laugh till you cry from it. I think its still getting more and more popular because when people watch it over they laugh for whole new reasons. I've probably watched it over twenty times, and I still find little spots of humor that I had missed in the nineteen other viewings. If you have never seen it, seriously put it in your life goals to watch this movie! May be you should save it for the day your sole mate dies... I think it will help.
If you don't like it, then I'm sorry I have tragic news... you are a conceited person. I would be surprised if you have any friends.
And FYI, It is better than the first, which is beyond hilarious too, but is less condensed over all.
