What's slower than a speeding bullet, and able to hit tall buildings at a single bound?
Still craving for the love of his life, ex-Air Force pilot Ted Striker follows Elaine onto the flight that she is working on as cabin crew. Elaine doesn't want to be with Ted anymore, but when the crew and passengers fall ill from food poisoning, Ted might be the only one who can save them.
1) It's been scientifically proven that this is the funniest movie of all time, so we don't need to have that conversation any more.
2) I thought jive was an actual language until I was maybe 13.
3) For some odd reason the visual gag of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar being pulled away from the cockpit wearing his Lakers gear and goggles is one of my favorite jokes in the movie.
4) This movie is rated PG but has boobs in it, as well as tons of other stuff not really appropriate for children. Luckily, the 80s were a different time and I was allowed to watch this about a billion times.
5) I've seen this a billion times and still caught a joke I had never noticed before.
“I take it black, like my men.”
It's a shame I never got to see this hilarious film sooner because Airplane! has been influencing comedies over the past 35 years now, and many spoof films have borrowed heavily from it. However I still managed to find the jokes quite refreshing and there are many quotable lines here. Just thinking about the best quotes in the movie bring a smile back to my face. The trio of directors and writers, Jim Abrahams, David Zucker, and Jerry Zucker, often referred to as the ZAZ team, deliver a witty and highly quotable film. They went on to direct seperate films as well and they each proved to be incredibly talented. Their greatest accomplishment…

This picture is pretty damn hilarious in my opinion.
(What really interests me, though, is the way that parody turns into non sequitur over time, as the source of the parody gets forgotten. Arguably, there are jokes that are even funnier today than they were in 1980, because now they seem completely random. Best example is the recurring bit in which a female passenger's thoughts about her husband are heard in voiceover, which I'm old enough to remember is spoofing a then-recent Yuban ad, but which probably plays better to younger viewers who'll have no idea why it's happening. This is a phenomenon I've experienced from the other side watching SCTV—some of my favorite sketches, like Crazy Hy's, are…
You are so funny.
I love you very much.
Kisses on all your pink parts,
This is literally the cheesiest film I’ve ever seen... I loved it.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
A classic comedy, this is how comedies should be, with on-the spot witty humor really makes you pay attention to not only the storyline, but things happening in the background, and even right in front of you. This film's jokes just are so stupidly perfect and written so beautifully, I can't think of any other comedy that's been better, especially with the modern day shit.
One of the best comedies of all time. Not even up for discussion.
surely the 80's couldn't have been fine with all the casual racism/sexism/overall dumb stereotypes????? the rest of the film is pure gold tho
When I was a kid we owned this movie, and Tootsie. I was too young to enjoy Tootsie, so one summer my friend and I watched Airplane! about a billion times.
Rewatching it as an adult, there are so many jokes I didn't get then that make sense now. And a lot of the things that cracked me up as a kid are painfully unfunny now.
There's a lot of casual racism that just didn't raise an eyebrow in the early 80s, which is excruciating to see (and be expected to laugh at!) now.
The character Jonny was a favorite when I was a kid, and I had no idea how much of a gay stereotype he is. But then…
shoot puns not guns!
Ever since 9/11, there haven’t been too much comedies poking fun at the many aspects of plane travel. There’s been disaster movies however, but they have a more serious tone. Let’s take it back to 1980, where this kind of comedy actually had a surprise following. Airplane!, directed by the trio Jim Abrahams, David Zucker and Jerry Zucker, is a movie that wouldn’t fly (no pun intended) in this day in age, especially given the events of 9/11. The movie is a cheesy family comedy that goes all over the place in terms of material.
The craziness starts with Ted Striker (Robert Hayes), an ex-fighter pilot from the Vietnam war. He’s a man on a mission, to find his love…
I watched this movie probably a dozen times already. I remember renting this movie from Blockbuster with my dad years ago. I was probably about 12 years old when I first saw it and it only gets better after every viewing. This is one of my favorite movies of all time.
A great slapstick comedy.
I actually fell asleep at the end of this movie, not because it was boring but because I was exhausted, and I just want to make a note of the fact that the Mayo clinic joke is one of my favourite jokes in all of history.
Great 60-90 min films (for those days when you just don't have the energy to watch a 3 hour masterpiece)
Doesn't the title of the list explain it well enough? This is a list of hight quality "short" films. Easy…
