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.
i don't remember a lot of this picture, but it was certainly a good laugh - you don't expect a lot ot these movies, because acting is not a priority.
A comédia mais deliciosamente boba que já vi. Incrível como um filme consegue entregar tão constantemente tantas piadas de "tiozão" e continuar sendo toscamente engraçado e não cansativo. Praticamente toda cena é ajeitada para ter sua punch-line e o humor nunca falha. Algumas coisas podem acabar sendo mais bobas que engraçadas, mas a maioria das piadas são de qualidade, de um jeito bem bobo.
Acredito que meu maior problema com certas piadas do filme é porque algumas delas são referências à pop culture dos anos 70-80, então eu com certeza não sou parte desse público alvo. Mesmo assim, o filme ganhou meu coração com sua falta de medo de ser o mais tosco possível, mas sabendo muito bem o que fazer com isso.
L'humour des 80s' 👍🏻
I had a shitty day and night, and I wanted to watch something that would brighten my mood and make me smile. For future reference, this movie is the perfect solution. Like many others, I saw it when I was a kid and laughed even though I didn't get a lot of the jokes. I watched it last year for The Dissolve's movie of the week, and knew it would fix things right up. Immediately, you find yourself chuckling at the rampant idiocy, and it never stops. I guess I need to buy it on Bluray, eh?
Watched it on the plane home from our holiday. Still hilarious.
"Sorry, not sorry."
A fun and silly film that doesn't even dare to take itself seriously and just go completely insane, which certainly isn't a bad thing!
Daft, random, unexplainable hilarious comedy with plenty classic 80's slapstick. I loved this film due to it's weirdness and very clever humour definitely a classic!
This film made me fall in love with the comedy genre and, in particular, parodies. Unfortunately, very few parodies hold a candle to this film. It really is a diamond in the rough. One of the greatest comedies ever. Leslie Nielsen is effortlessly hilarious.
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…
