Hot Shots! Part Deux : Hot Shots or Hot Shots Part Deux?

Hot Shots or Hot Shots Part Deux?

Which Hot Shots movie is better, the original or the sequel? To me it's the sequel Part Deux. It had a better plot, cool new cast members including Rowan Atkinson and Richard Creena, plus it just had the better jokes. Lloyd Bridgers as the President is hilarious. "We'll settle this the old navy way. First guy to die looses!" Which Hot Shots do you guys think is better?

Re: Hot Shots or Hot Shots Part Deux?

There's not a lot in it, but Part Deux just edges it.

"Nothing in this world that's worth having comes easy."

Re: Hot Shots or Hot Shots Part Deux?

I agree with Johnny 1810. The first film is funny, but is more concentrated on spoofing Top Gun, with a few other films thrown in (The Superman one being the funniest). I tend to compare the films using my 5 favourite gags from each.

*FILM SPOILERS*

Hot Shots:

1. Pete "Dead Meat" Thompson getting hit by the ambulance and saying "Wendy I can fly!"

2. Admiral Benson banging his head on a pipe and saying "I'll get that, its probably for me".

3. Topper riding over the speed bumps on his motorbike.

4. The milkman throwing the milk bottles after seeing the paperboy do it. (This one nearly made my friend choke on diet cola he was laughing so much)

5. Admiral Benson's performance at the funeral.


Hot Shots Part Deux:

1. The entire patrol boat sequence, including the fake Iraqi speak ("Kareem of Onion. Al Jarreau") and endless bullets from Topper's gun.

2. The man getting hit by the board at the train station. ("Warned ya twice!")

3. The Geronimo joke.

4. President Benson's speech at the banquet ("Just yesterday I was strafing so many of your homes and now here I am today begging you not to build such good cars.")

5. Saddam Hussein's "Sufferin Sucatash!" line.

Re: Hot Shots or Hot Shots Part Deux?

I like the first one more.

Re: Hot Shots or Hot Shots Part Deux?

Part Deux = More Laughs

First ones funny too though.

Re: Hot Shots or Hot Shots Part Deux?

I like them both a lot, but I think I enjoy watching the second one more.

Re: Hot Shots or Hot Shots Part Deux?

Agreed, It's the second one for me too!

Part Deux rules.

Re: Hot Shots or Hot Shots Part Deux?

Hot Shots! - slightly above average
Hot Shots! Pare Deux - borderline brilliant

Re: Hot Shots or Hot Shots Part Deux?

Wow, I guess I am in the minority here. But I think part one far out does part duex. Duex is alright but one kept me laughing.

"Smells like carotts"

Re: Hot Shots or Hot Shots Part Deux?

Both are great, but IMO, DEUX is funnier.

Re: Hot Shots or Hot Shots Part Deux?

Both are hilarious, but the TV in my country keeps on only showing Part Deux. Not that I can get tired of "Geronimo! Geronimo! Me!", but I just can't remember the first anymore.

Re: Hot Shots or Hot Shots Part Deux?

Part Deux, definetly funnier!!!! (For me anyway)

Let the sky burn and I will inhale without a fight.

Re: Hot Shots or Hot Shots Part Deux?

Although it's never mentioned when people rattle on about sequals being better than the originals (Godfather II? Pah!) Part Deax is the better of the two for me.

Hilarious all the way through.

Re: Hot Shots or Hot Shots Part Deux?

Deux by a mile. I used to absolutely love the first one, but after I rented it again for the first time in forever a few days ago, it just wasn't really that funny, save for a few scenes.

Last Movie Seen: Hot Shots! (1991)

Re: Hot Shots or Hot Shots Part Deux?

And let's not forget the fight scene in the beginning of Part Deux...
When the bad guy spits his bollocks out after getting kneed in the nuts... I nearly fell out of my seat, I was laughing so hard!

Of course... I was twelve when I saw it for the first time in 1993.

Also, just the little thing with Crenna being able to escape his cell through the bars in order to get the keys to open the cell...

Cheers, from Denmark

So... Part Deux for me!

Re: Hot Shots or Hot Shots Part Deux?

I had the same experience the first one wasn't that funny anymore but the second one is still solid.

Re: Hot Shots or Hot Shots Part Deux?

As the most of all here... Part deux definitely! :>
Why? Because of all the cool jokes and movie spoofs... Whenever i see it again i keep laughing... No other film (i guess do that)... Its just so cool... To me its still the funiest movie ever! Part one is still cool though!
By the way... When a part tree? :>

Re: Hot Shots or Hot Shots Part Deux?

Part Deux; no contest. I gave the original an 8, but this one I gave a 10!

I just bought the DVDs; gonna watch them tomorrow!

Re: Hot Shots or Hot Shots Part Deux?

I'm with Sarge they were both funny but part one is a classic to me.

-The legs that go all the way up

-The lounge scene

-The chafing dish incident

-notnotnotnottootootootoonotnotnotnottootootootoonotnotnotnottootootootoo...are too times ten.

-His fathers eyes (classic!!!!!!!)

-At ease! (The funnier of the Superman spoofs in the movie imho)

-I don't know how many times I've seen Wall-eye mentioned here!!! He was too funny!!!!

-Dead meats wife blowing all of Topper's life savings on hats (I still use that line)

I dunno maybe I'm just sentimental :D I could keep going on lol

Part 2 is better, an ordinary movie at best IMO, part 1 is a joke

Re: Hot Shots or Hot Shots Part Deux?

Definitely Part Deux. So many jokes that still kill me after all this time. Especially the part when the president is swimming underwater...

President: There were 2 things on my mind. Would we get to the men in time...(ridiculously high voice)...and why did I bring helium instead of air.

Superb.

Re: Hot Shots or Hot Shots Part Deux?

When people discuss the rarity of sequels being superior to the original, i don't mention The Godfather II or Aliens, i mention Hot Shots Part Duex

Re: Hot Shots or Hot Shots Part Deux?

HAHAHAA! me too!

Re: Hot Shots or Hot Shots Part Deux?

Both are good but i like Part Duex better.

The scene where he is killing alot of people then it mentions the terminator and robocop then says bloodiest movie. That part was hilarious

Re: Hot Shots or Hot Shots Part Deux?

The original is amusing, but Part Deux is far superior. It has so many genius moments, such as the Platoon/Apocalypse Now spoof when Charlie and Martin Sheen meet and the running bodycount when Machine is mowing down guards. I can't believe the sequel wasn't as successful or highly rated as the first film. It holds up much better to repeat viewings.

Re: Hot Shots or Hot Shots Part Deux?

Equally good for different reasons. I like how they did not go beat for beat from the movies they were based on, but made original plots with similar themes to the spoofed movies. Hot Shots was a bit more subtle (just a little bit) with the gags being of the "funny stuff that you think of while watching a serious movie scene" variety, where as Part Deux had that element but with a bit more Three Stooges, cartoonish, over-the-top jokes, but not so much that it got annoying.

Hot Shots was (obviously) a parody of Top Gun and other serious military movies, so there was a need for more subtlety, whereas Part Deux was a parody of the already ridiculous, one man army, Rambo, Steven Seagal, straight to video movies, so it could afford to be a bit wackier.

Overall, Hot Shots I and II are an exception to many movie series' in that the second one did not bomb.

Leave the gun...take the canolis

I'm not saying I don't trust you, and I'm not saying I do. But I don't.

Part Deux! It kept me laughing continually, unlike with the first Hot Shots!. I guess I didn't get the jokes in the first as well as I did with those in the sequel. Tug Benson was pretty funny too, and Topper Harley. Funny, funny movie.

Re: I'm not saying I don't trust you, and I'm not saying I do. But I don't.

I think that part duex is better because it's well dare I say it but, 1,000,0000 better than the 1st one. " war... it's fantastic. " really.:)

Re: Hot Shots or Hot Shots Part Deux?

I liked the first one better, maybe because it came out first and made more fun of Top Gun than the second one made fun of Rambo. It is too bad they didn't use more of the original characters in the sequel, plus, I felt they didn't use much of Grey Edwards. He's in the beginning and at the dinner, then that's it? Does he win the election?

Hot Shots Part Deux

Re: Hot Shots or Hot Shots Part Deux?

Part Deux gets my vote. Some of the funniest parts to me were 1) "War, it's fantastic," 2) Saddam coming back together like T-1000, 3) "Who's that? Oh, he's just an extra." LOL!

Re: Hot Shots or Hot Shots Part Deux?

I agree Part 2 is the best, the only one coming close to the best from the "Zucker-Factory" ("The Naked Gun" 1/2 of course).

Even its from the 90ies, its almost prophetic regarding actual action stuff like "Rambo 4" - remembering the hilarious "Bodycount/HighScore" sequence with "more kills than in Total Recall and RoboCop" (two of my favorite movies) leading to "Bloodiest movie ever"...

well, that record has been broken....

Re: Hot Shots or Hot Shots Part Deux?

hot shots 2 is the funniest, which is rare because people always say original stuff is better i.e matrix etc etc

or maybe because if part 1 does good part 2 needs to top it or it fails in comparison


in anycase part2 is the funniest.....especially the scene:

1. where they team up to destroy the annoying 80s duracel bunny (god i hated that ad as kid lol)

2. Ramada breaking her shotgun and throws the broken part at the iraqi

3. bloodiest movie ever joke


i think hot shots 1 is ok, the 'top gun' jokes got old abit and 'The running man' gag at the end where they doctor says "is it safe" is too 'take it or leave it, who cares' kind of way.

Re: Hot Shots or Hot Shots Part Deux?

Deux by a mile. I used to absolutely love the first one, but after I rented it again for the first time in forever a few days ago, it just wasn't really that funny, save for a few scenes.

My thoughts exactly. I bought both films recently and the original film had amusing moments but really didn't do it for me. Part Deux was always my favorite of the two, and it held up in my eyes.

Re: Hot Shots or Hot Shots Part Deux?

Deux me too...

Both.

Re: Hot Shots or Hot Shots Part Deux?

They're both hilarious, but I like Part Deux a little better. It seems to have more Lloyd Bridges and more gags.






"Joey, have you ever been in a Turkish prison?"

Re: Hot Shots or Hot Shots Part Deux?

Awesome.

In Sicily, Woman Are More Dangerous Than Shotguns

Re: Hot Shots or Hot Shots Part Deux?

Just watching Part Deux again just now and I would say it's far superior to the first. Not that the first was bad or anything but Part Deux is hilarious from start to finish.

I wish I had done a lot of things. I wish I had... I wish I had stayed. I do.

Re: Hot Shots or Hot Shots Part Deux?

I just have two words for you... Brenda Bakke!

Re: Hot Shots or Hot Shots Part Deux?

HS1 has more jokes per minute but the hit rate is lower than in HS2 where almost every joke is a riot.
Also I preferred how in HS2 they actually cast actors from the movies they spoofed. Seriously, can you imagine a better choice to mock Col. Trautman than Richard Crenna himself?


"Oh, what have I drunk?" - Socrates

Re: Hot Shots or Hot Shots Part Deux?

I can't pick one over the other. Both are hilarious.
