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
At one point during the sequence which displays an on-screen body count tally, the movie boasts an ostensibly higher number of deaths than RoboCop (among other famous shoot'em ups). Miguel Ferrer, who plays Harbinger in this movie, also starred in RoboCop, and ended up 1 out that film's 30 strong body count. See more »

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.
