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.
no me acordaba de que sí es bien buena. tiene un pacing perfecto para las bromas, la mayoría son medio inocentonas, visuales y muy bien ejecutadas. repiten una y otra y otra vez lo de: "fulano wants to see you at the [lugar]" "what is it?" "[descripción del lugar]" y aun así me reí cada vez. cosa que me pareció curiosa, logran mantener el suspenso de la situación sobre cómo van a aterrizar el avión.
After watching "Zero Hour!" and realizing just how much of the script was simply re-used for this movie, I had to watch this again.
The thing that shocks me the most is that the scene involving the doctor and flight staff figuring out that it was fish that made everyone sick was WORD-FOR-WORD from the "Zero Hour!" script. It had always seemed so moronic, but it's the exact conversation from "Zero Hour!", just delivered by Nielsen in such a way that makes it hilarious. Everything he does is hilarious in this, and it's thanks to his deadpan performance.
There are a lot of jokes in this, and while many work, many are misfires... There's a lot to laugh at here, so the misfires are forgivable for the most part.
"I just wanted to tell you: Good luck, we're all counting on you."
Zucker/Abrahams/Zucker-Gag-Bombardement im DIE NACKTE KANONE-Stil, dass im Wesentlichen Katastrophenfilme aufs Korn nimmt. Dieses Frühwerk hat zwar eine ähnliche Spaßdichte wie die späteren Komödien mit Leslie Nielsen, hier wird jedoch weitaus öfter danebengeschossen.
Lots and lots of laughs, including that oh so famous "don't call me Shirley" line from the late great Leslie Nielsen.
This movie is funnier as an adult than it is as a kid. It's also paced incredibly well and one of the funniest movies on the planet.
Airplane? What is it? A funny movie, but that's not important right now. The most iconic parody of them all. A veritable pun-fest. The movie your dad can't stop laughing at. This is Airplane!
Surely you've seen this one before? If not, you should. It's cured me of my drinking problem.
This movie has little in the way of social significance, except as a bit of a time capsule, but it isn't concerned about social ills. In fact, the film uses stereotypes as comedy, which really isn't all that funny, but is, like I said, representative of 1980.
The comedy here is all about the classic puns, and the characters as caricatures of archetypes from disaster movies and dramas in…
A little dated now, surely.
Okay guys, serious talk, why does everyone think this movie is one of the all time greatest comedies? I get that comedy is arguably the most subjective thing in existence as there is no such thing as objectively unfunny (aside from post Happy Gilmore Adam Sandler), but this was just painful to sit through.
Perhaps it's because spoof comedy never has been and never will be funny as it is, in my mind, without a shadow of a doubt, the laziest comedy to write. Why is it that this film can get away with crude blowjob jokes that are there just because oral sex is apparently hilarious, random nudity for no reason and the king of all bad comedy, fart…
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…
