“Hot Shots!” (1991). Once a spoofer, always a spoofer—at least according to Hollywood. This 1991 film starring Charlie Sheen (who would go on to make “Hot Shots Part Deux” and two “Scary Movies”) was penned and directed by Abrahams. A riff on “Top Gun,” our seventh-grade self thought this movie stood up just fine on its own. Marsha Blackburn / 20th Century Fox
