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.
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,
Jim Abrahams, David Zucker, and Jerry Zucker's "Airplane!" is a near-iconic parody of disaster films of the 1970s. While iconic might not necessarily mean classic, this spoof is built on wall-to-wall gags that are memorable, usually funny, and have stood the test of time.
The film puts a premium on its comedy, and, as such, its story is of little consequence. It follows war-damaged fighter pilot, Ted Striker, as he is pressed into service in an attempt to land a jetliner after its pilots fall ill. The narrative is no more than a foundation for comic beats, but it is enough of a foundation to do its job.
Robert Hays, Julie Haggerty, and Leslie Nielsen lead the film which also…
There's a reason you hear or have seen parts of this movie referenced so many times across so many mediums. Practically every joke hits. They don't always have to be laugh out loud funny, but they're hardly ever not funny.
Review In A Nutshell:
The film was certainly groundbreaking during its time but I felt some of its sequences has lost its sizzle as time have passed, leaving them feeling dated and stale. Though there were still some moments that left me in surprise, even if I have seen this film more than twice. This would be the type of film I would see myself coming back to only when I have specific craving for it.
AKA : "Y A-T-IL UN PILOTE DANS L'AVION ?"
The best comedy movie of all time. There is nothing in this movie that is not a joke. I still laugh out loud every time I watch this movie, even though I practically have the whole movie memorized. It's the only perfect goofy comedy movie I've ever seen. Fantastic movie.
"Airplane! isn’t just “random humor” in the same style as Seth MacFarlane. Its tone is consistent throughout, and as a result, all of its disparate elements feel like they’re cut from the same cloth. As wildly different as some of its jokes can be, all of them have one thing in common: they’re in Airplane!, and that’s not an arbitrary umbrella. Against all odds, Airplane! holds together. Even 35 years later, it holds up as a comedic masterwork."
Best Comedymovie of all time. Just perfect. If you need to laugh, watch this movie.
"I know but this guy has no flying experience at all! He's a menace to himself and everything else in the air... yes, birds too."
I wish people quoted this more
One of the best comedies ever. Just absolutely hilarious. I've seen this I can't tell you how many times over the years and it is just as funny now as it was the first time if not more so.
Airplane is a hilarious spoof film that has been imitated multiple time but they have never been as good.
Comedia a 1,000 kilómetros por hora.
De esas películas que siempre te saca carcajadas al descubrir un chiste nuevo que no habías cachado en las cincuenta vistas anteriores. La primera en su tipo y la mejor por mucho. Oveur.
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 200+ quality "short" films. Easy…
