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

Trivia

The entire river boat sequence, in particular the encounter with the enemy patrol boat, is a beautiful parody of a near-identical scene in The Guns of Navarone even down to dialogue - Geogory Peck asking the boat crew if they speak "Americanize" and camera angles. The original sequence begins in The Guns of Navarone at about 29 minutes. See more »

Goofs

In the "dim sum" fighting scene Topper decides against gummy bears to spike his gloved fists. However, when Topper accidentally hits the referee in the face, gummy bears can be seen sticking to the referee's right cheek and nose. See more »

Quotes

Topper Harley: [narrating] Somebody once wrote, "Hell is the impossibility of reason." Well, that's what this place feels like - hell. I hate it already and it's only been a few hours. I'm so tired. We get up at four in the morning...
Capt. Benjamin L. Willard: [narrating] At first I thought they handed me the wrong dossier. I couldn't believe they wanted this man dead. Third Generation West Point, top of his class, Airbourne, Korea, about a thousand decorations, etc, etc...
Topper HarleyCapt. Benjamin L. Willard: [as their boats pass each other] I loved you in Wall Street!

Alternate Versions

The film has had a checkered UK censorship history. For its original cinema release, 54 secs were cut for a 12 certificate, removing all footage of nunchakus during the Rambo scene and editing the spoof Basic Instinct sex scene in the apartment. The video was rated PG and the cuts were expanded with a further 1 min 7 secs of additional edits to remove a single use of 'fuck' and the complete removal of the bedroom scene. The same print was used as a basis for the PG-rated DVD, although the distributors made a further two minutes of edits including the removal of Ramada's line "Wild, free, passionate, unbridled sex. I'd fondle you in ways you can't imagine" and even the already PG approved scene in the limousine. The UK Blu-ray version reinstates the previously cut footage and was passed 12 uncut in 2013.

In no laughing contests, this is my kryptonite.
30 April 2009 | by splatwackerSee all my reviews

Its a piece of art, designed for one thing; making you laugh till you cry from it. I think its still getting more and more popular because when people watch it over they laugh for whole new reasons. I've probably watched it over twenty times, and I still find little spots of humor that I had missed in the nineteen other viewings. If you have never seen it, seriously put it in your life goals to watch this movie! May be you should save it for the day your sole mate dies... I think it will help.

If you don't like it, then I'm sorry I have tragic news... you are a conceited person. I would be surprised if you have any friends.

And FYI, It is better than the first, which is beyond hilarious too, but is less condensed over all.
