Hot Shots

           These spoof type films are usually a laugh a minute. They are zany, wild, and goofy. These types of films are crazy and insane.  The best reason to watch them is they make us chuckle out loud despite ourselves.

The only down side is if the viewer has not seen every film they are referencing or get each topical gag they are spoofing the humor is lost.

         This film was made in 1991, so I got many of the film gags and even a few of the “current event” type humor but I am not sure what I may have missed.

         The times I laughed out loud the most was when the humor was just plane goofy (not the dog). These are the types of gags that are funny in any movie but most prevalent in these types of films.
           My father used to call these fun films. “Leave your brain at the box office.” Type of movies. They are good films to enjoy when you need a good belly laugh.

A note from an editor!

Hi Matthew,

Thank you for the time and effort you put into this piece, especially on a Saturday morning. I can tell you definitely took good notes of everything that was going on during the event!

We still have some work to do before this piece is ready to print. Your piece has a lot of information, but it doesn’t sound like a news article. What was the point of his speech/presentation? Why was he addressing this audience? What is Vanguard? What does the company do – who does it serve? You spend a lot of time narrating (for example, how he was injured), but did not report on the purpose of the event. You can maybe mention his appearance/joking about it in a sentence or two, but do not take several paragraphs to do so. Also, I like how you mentioned where the name “Vanguard” comes from.

There are a lot of spelling errors in this piece – make sure you proof read each sentence carefully.

I know I am getting back to you a little later I hoped, and I’m sorry about that! But if you have time tonight, please go through my suggestions and try to rework your piece. You can send me what you have tonight/tomorrow morning. Please bring a copy of it to the meeting tomorrow and we will discuss it further from there.

Once again, thanks for your hard work and promptness! Remember this is a learning process, and we are all part of the Waltonian team!

Talk to you soon!
