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.
Airplane! is either an incredibly smart parody held back by some extremely dated humor (and racism) or a movie showing its age yet still has a few incredible laughs that will likely be funny to me forever. Take your pick.
Too many jokes in a serious movie about a terrorist plot.
Great film, but on rewatching it, I don't think I like it as much as the Naked Gun series that Leslie Nielsen went on to do thanks to this. It's something to do with the heavy-handedness of all the pun-based gags.
One of the funniest comedies I have ever watched, Airplane continues to deliver random hilarity and clever jokes throughout all its run-time. Airplane is both a pleasure to watch and a comedic masterpiece.
Wow. This surpassed parody.
Todos hoy día están familiarizados (aun sin verlas, saben que existen) con las sagas de Scary Movie y todas las "Movie" que hay, para muchos (creo que la mayoría, o eso QUIERO creer) películas que ya ni merecen ser vistas de lo repetitivas, aburridas, poco graciosas y simplemente MALAS que son.
Sin embargo, este género de parodias de muchas películas a la vez, con gags que van de lo más absurdo a lo más...asqueroso? tuvieron su gran impulso durante los años 80 gracias al trío ZAZ (Jerry Zucker, Jim Abrahams y David Zucker) quienes, comenzando con esta película, le dieron un empujón a una visión de la comedia que lamentablemente hoy día ha sido totalmente banalizado (bah, digamoslo directamente: embasurado!).…
Airplane! is a hilarious movie, even called by some the funniest movie ever made for good reason. However, it has a big problem: many of its jokes only work if you know the temporal context of the film, reason for which today it's not as funny as it was before, and some years from now it will be ever less funny. On the other hand, some other of its jokes are universal and timeless.
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…
