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

Goofs

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". See more »

Quotes

Only a handful of our highest government officials were aware of the operation, as it included an attempt to assasssan... assisss... kill a guy.

all the way
22 October 2006 | by See all my reviews

Knowing that "Hot Shots! Part Deux" is from the "Airplane!" crowd should immediately identify that the whole thing is an excuse to be silly. And they do just that. Mostly spoofing the "Rambo" movies - but also various other flicks and even George H.W. Bush barfing on Japan's PM - they play everything for all that it's worth. OK, so maybe this is low humor, but still, there isn't a dull moment anywhere in the movie. It's impossible not to like. Charlie Sheen, Lloyd Bridges, Valeria Golino, and Jerry Haleva reprise their roles from the original, and there's also Rowan Atkinson (that's right: Mr. Bean!) this time around. So see it; you're sure to like it.
