Hot Shots (1991)

hot shotsBy Scott Goldfine

Charlie Sheen is a troubled navy fighter pilot in this “Top Gun” spoof from “Airplane” and “Naked Gun” collaborator Jim Abrahams. Amid a flurry of gags, Sheen finds love and himself while exposing a plot to discredit the navy’s jetfighters. Jon Cryer (as a vision-impaired pilot) and Lloyd Bridges (as a battle-scarred admiral) shine.

But this daft, joke-a-minute formula is growing tiresome. Also stars Cary Elwes and Valeria Golino. Rated R.
