It IS the funniest movie of all time!

Ted: "Surely you can't be serious..."
Dr. Rumack: "I am serious...and don't call me Shirley"

Airplane! (known as Flying High! in Australia) is cinema's seminal spoof movie. It was decades ago that the capable, imaginative duo of David Zucker, Jim Abrahams and Jerry Zucker (ZAZ) wrote and directed what became, through my eyes, the funniest movie of all time. Up until 1980 when... read more

A classic

I'm pretty sure I saw this one back then when I was a kid but since it is such a classic, I thought it was time for a re-watch. Personally, I think one of the interesting things about this movie is that it is a great test to know if you actually enjoy this genre of parodies. Indeed, even though it might not be the first one, it was and is the best one ever made. So, if you watch this flick and you... read more

Stupid and Dated, But Still Gives Me th

Airplane was probably the first Big Budget Spoof, and is still a classic. Many of the spoofs are dated, and probably will make no sense to anyone under the age of 40 (Here to Eternity, Coffee Commercial, etc.), and some of it is very politically incorrect, but the movie is still worth a look. The Saturday Night Fever spoof is way too long, I'll admit. But this movie still gives me the giggles e... read more

An airplane crew takes ill. Surely the only person capable of landing the plane is an ex-pilot afraid to fly. But don't call him Shirley.

"2017/08/27 @Goodrich Kalamazoo 10 - Theater 6 via MoviePass Back in the theaters after 37 years for the classics reshowing. Still funny, and was fun to hear other people laughing at this classic again. The classics series intro was a fun bit of trivia as well."

" Grandfather to all parody. It throws up as much slapstick and fun that is humanly possible. Some of it's humor has lost it's appeal as the films it parodies were contemporary films that were not big classics so they have left people's memory for a long time ago but still it is an above average fun movie.

" Notes: Even though it might not be the first parody ever made, it was and is the best one ever made. So, if you watch this flick and you think it stinks, you can skip directly everything in this genre because nothing else that came after was remotely better than this. For me, this test worked pretty well and I know where I stand now. Indeed, I thought it was pretty good and there were many many good jokes but that was about it, I'm afraid. Indeed, in my opinion, even though it was supposed to"

"05.02. Netflix, ?th viewing DIRECTED BY Jim Abrahams, David & Jerry Zucker I think I prefer Top Secret! these days but I can't knock down the rating for this. Not every joke works anymore but most of the time it still is hilarious. "
