Hot Shots Part Deux

Year: 1993
Director: Jim Abrahams
Cast: Charlie Sheen, Lloyd Bridges, Valeria Golino, Richard Crenna, Miguel Ferrer, Rowan Atkinson
Most of the cast reunite for a second helping of what should have been as funny as the original and the other films that the Airplane legacy spawned.

But the pace had started to evaporate from the genre by this time (for no apparent reason - Abrahams, Zucker and co were still the only ones doing it), and some of the jokes are too slow coming and tedious to surprise and amuse you.

This time Topper (Sheen) fills the Rambo mantle as the story follows the basic 'Rambo goes in to rescue buddies and destroy everything' formula - with Crenna reprising his own role.

But something was missing, and the salad days of movie sight gag comedy was over.
