In the opening sequence, Steele has burned a hole in his parachute by throwing away his cigar. As he comes into land, a smoke canister can be seen hanging underneath the canopy, simulating a burning canopy. See more »
I don't see how anyone can not like this just a little bit. Sure it's not the greatest film in the world, but it still does justice to the spoof genre, which so many films have tried to do but failed (think Scary Movie (the 1st one, not the other 2, they were decent)).
It's not as good as the Naked Gun trilogy or Airplane, and it does recycle a few gags from there (Scary Movie 3 did this). They do this so that people who haven't seen the other films still get a variety of jokes from the other films.
The opening sequence is one of the best opening sequences I have seen in ages. They should definitely do more films like this film. 9/10.
