The UK cinema version was cut to receive a '12' certificate by the BBFC with the removal of one use of 'fucking' and to add a warning sign, advising against the dangers of helium inhalation, during the scene where Topper smokes the peace pipe. An additional cut was made for the PG-rated video version to remove references to incest and bestiality from one of Topper's quips, bringing the cuts total to 22 secs. All later DVD releases still feature the heavily cut video print, but the Blu-ray release was passed completely uncut with a '12' rating in 2013. See more »
It's parody of "Top Gun" from Jim Abrahams of "Airplane!" and "Naked Gun". Lt. Topper Harley (Charlie Sheen) is the Maverick character who is struggling with his father's history. Lt. Kent Gregory (Cary Elwes) is the Iceman character. Ramada Thompson (Valeria Golino) is Topper's psychiatrist. Jim 'Wash Out' Pfaffenbach (Jon Cryer) suffers from walleye vision. Pete 'Dead Meat' Thompson (William O'Leary) is ... well ... dead meat. Adm. Thomas Benson (Lloyd Bridges) is their clueless commanding officer. Lt. Cmdr. James Block (Kevin Dunn) is trying to create problems so that they get new planes with help from the manufacturer.
This is a much more sillier movie. The jokes aren't all good. I actually liked the 'Elephant with 3 balls' joke because it plays on a couple of different levels. The jokes are cute but they don't really get a big laugh. It's generally smirk worthy. It's a decline in quality from earlier excellence.
