Hot Shots!1991 — 1993
Hot Shots! is a 1991 comedy spoof film starring Charlie Sheen, Cary Elwes, Valeria Golino, Lloyd Bridges, Kevin Dunn, Jon Cryer and Ryan Stiles. It was directed by Jim Abrahams, and was written by Abrahams and Pat Proft. Carrying the same comedic vein as Airplane!, a film Abrahams co-directed, the film primarily spoofs the 1986 action film Top Gun, but also draws material from films like Rocky and Superman. It spawned a sequel in 1993, Hot Shots! Part Deux. Sheen and Cryer would later co-star in the television series Two and a Half Men, in which Stiles also went on to play a recurring role.
