Storyline

Retired Lieutenant Commander Quinton McHale spends his days puttering around the Caribbean in the old PT-73 selling homebrew, ice cream, and swimsuit calendars. He's brought out of retirement when his old nemesis turned the second best terrorist in the world, Major Vladikov, takes over the island of San Moreno and starts building a nuclear launch silo on it. With help from his old crew and hindrances from Captain Wallace B. Binghampton, who sank a cruise liner a while back, McHale tries to put Vladikov out of business.

"I don't care what anyone says. That's funny!"
27 August 2003 | by See all my reviews

This is by far one of my favorite military parodies ever, and i loved both hot shots movies. first, let me say that with possibly one exception (scary movie 2) Tim Curry can do no wrong, and he delivered his lines with sterling precision in this movie, pulling off the insane soviet terrorist perfectly. Also, the mere presence of Bruce cambell in anything ressurects this movie from any slightly bad features it may have. well played out, and expertly performed, even by tom arnold. a must see for when you need a good laugh.
