You can skip movies 10 times but never go back.
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…
The perfect comedy.
"Striker, listen, and you listen close: flying a plane is no different than riding a bicycle, just a lot harder to put baseball cards in the spokes."
- REX KRAMER

THERE ARE NO CONS FOR A 5 STAR FILM!
THE TAKEAWAY (DEEPER MEANING, PERSONAL IMPACT):
'Airplane!' is the…
A true comedy classic!
My first Leslie Neilsen film. Wowie this man had me dying. He's funny with out even acting. He can just say something with a straight face and I'll roll on the floor. Looking forward to more films with him. Yes the movie was hilarious. My favorite part was the coffee bit with the children.
A very enjoyable comedy. I found the dead pan, literal humor very entertaining. I don't really have any critique about this movie. I would definitely recommend it to others. 4/5 stars.
Real funny movie with the dialogue (well most of them) were almost verbatim with a serious disaster airplane film Zero Hour (1957). The fast pacing of the jokes make you not think that much about those that did not land and quickly followed up by those that did. Leslie Nielsen was the real standout in the film but actually has a smaller presence than what is otherwise referenced by other people. Better than expected.
The Godfather of lame dad jokes.
As an expectant father, I am completely onboard with this.
I miss Leslie Nielsen and Lloyd Bridges terribly.
This movie is made by the same people that did Naked Gun and you can clearly tell. It starts off with the same witty humor the ridicilous scenario's and the surreality of this world and it has the man Leslie Nielsen himself.
I personally love the Naked Gun movies (Yes all of them) but that's mostly because Leslie Nielsen is the only actor I know that can deliver those ridiculous lines and make them hilariously funny. In this movie you have a completely different lead actor who's just not on the same level as Leslie Nielsen at all.
The jokes get a little bit too over the top and some characters are just intolerable, and not funny at all. I…
A few jokes that fall flat in 2016 but a lot that are still just as funny!
