Synopsis

Triple bill featuring three spoof comedies. In 'Hot Shots!' (1991), recruited to join a top-secret mission for the Air Force, a renegade pilot (Charlie Sheen) finds himself coping with an incompetent admiral (Lloyd Bridges) and a carefully selected squadron of flyers who are either inept or half-blind. He also winds up in competition with the corps' model of military perfection (Cary Elwes) for the heart of the base's sultry psychiatrist (Valeria Golino). In 'Loaded Weapon' (1992), Emilio Estevez and Samuel L. Jackson are Colt and Luger, two dangerously over-the-edge detectives who uncover a despicable plot to simultaneously rot America's brains and teeth with drug-laced Wilderness Girl cookies. Aided by a likeable slimeball (Jon Lovitz), a leather-loving beauty (Kathy Ireland), they battle arch bad-dudes General Mortars (William Shatner) and Mr Jigsaw (Tim Curry). In 'Spaceballs' (1987), Mel Brooks spoofs every sci-fi movie from 'Star Wars' and 'Alien' to 'Planet of the Apes'. When Princess Vespa (Daphne Zuniga) is kidnapped by the evil Dark Helmet (Rick Moranis), space adventurer Lone Star (Bill Pullman) and his doglike companion Barf (John Candy) are hired to rescue her by her father, King Roland. En route the duo encounter the monstrous Pizza the Hutt (voiced by Dom De Luise), cosmic advisor Yogurt (Brooks) and the princess' android handmaiden Dot Matrix (voiced by Joan Rivers), and discover all kinds of opportunities for spin-off merchandising.
