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.

Airplane!

“Warning: SpoilersFrom the writing/directing team of the Zucker brothers (David and Jerry) and Jim Abrahams, this is probably one of the greatest spoof and stupidity films ever made. Basically Ted Striker (Robert Hays) is pursuing stewardess and ex-lover Elaine Dickinson (Julie Hagerty), following her onto the Trans American Airlines plane just about to take off, even when he has a deep aversion for planes because of the war. During the flight he tries to talk to her again and again, but many crew members and passengers are becoming seriously ill due to the fish dinner, including pilot Captain Oveur (Peter Graves). trying to help the situation is Dr. Rumack (Leslie Nielsen), and it seems Ted is the only person qualified to fly the plane, besides Otto the blow-up auto pilot. So with the help” read more
