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.
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…
naked gun was better.

film 23, task 29: a spoof films
thanks to my good night's sleep after emmys day yesterday, i was inspired enough to watch this and 'some like it hot' today. one of the best double bills i've ever had, hands down. this was so bloody funny. not once did i complain that it's boring. all the jokes land better than they should, partly due to just how deadpan the whole thing is. i'm already looking forward to rewatching this one day.
Surely a movie with more laughs per minute than any other. Every scene has something in it to make you laugh. And don't call me Shirley.
I re-watched this years after I originally saw it, and it was great to re-discover all the jokes. A few jokes have become dated into obscurity, and are head-scratchters. But the movie delivers a laugh every 30 seconds, so it's no great loss.
Great balance between plot, characters, and jokes. Constant gags, but they're attached to a plot and characters, so there's something to be engaged in while you laugh.
these are jokes people
Movie spoofs are mostly avoided like a plague these days but there was a time when they were fresh and new. Airplane! is an early example of the sub-genre far before it had grown stale.
A lot of jokes miss in Airplane! but there is such a constant barrage of jokes thrown at the viewer there's not enough time to get too worried about it. Nothing is considered too silly here and it works to it's advantage. The "plot" itself does tend to drag on a bit after a while but people speaking Jive...with subtitles, men not wanting to be called Shirley, a blow up doll auto pilot and more keep things fun.
If you want some good laughs, whether you like spoofs or not, Airplane! is something you should have watched by now....And don't call me Shirley.
Some amusing bits and a whole lot of filler.
Sometimes it tries too hard, and a lot of the time jokes are recycled, but do not be mistaken this is a funny movie.
The balding, gay guy in the airport control tower is extremely annoying and not funny ever. Leslie Nielson on the other hand is (like it would be any other way) hilarious.
It takes about 30-40 minutes for Nielson to be introduced and that is way too long.
If you like puns and shows like Family Guy, you should give this a watch.
If you're feeling overwhelmed, but still want to squeeze a film into your daily routine, this list is made for…
