“I loved you in Wall Street” is the punchline uttered by Sheens junior and senior in spoof classic Hot Shots Part Deux; a gag that harks back to the duo’s turn as father and son in Oliver Stone’s Wall Street. Whilst the movie is often remembered for Michael Douglas’ Gordon Gekko, a pantomime villain who stole the show and plenty of peoples’ pensions with his greed is good mantra. Much that is great and good about this ode to 80s excess comes from the Sheen’s father and son relationship. It’s a dynamic that expertly captures the generational gap with Charlie Sheen in particular reminding you why he was once famous for the quality of his on screen appearances rather than his penchant for Tiger Blood.
