Who does not love this film?A comedy classic.Cast perfect in their roles.Well written of course with the memorable catch phrases.DVD package. Normal extras on it. Deleted scenes, commentary, trailer, that type of thingBUT IT IS ONE OF THE I HATE THEM SO MUCH FLIP THE LITTLE FLAPS TO OPEN THE CASE.The film that got Leslie Neilson's career into high gear in comedy's. there would have been no Naked Gun series of films without this film.
Amazing. The gags are still great! Why cant they make more likethis? This film is now a bit dates- things like "smoking or nonsmoking" or a 1 level LAX airport are sort of funny to see--- but thequick jokes keep the "action" moving. The plot is very simple, butno one is watching this for plot.
I love almost anything with Leslie Nielsen in it. He is just so darn cookey. This is not for serious movie viewers. It's only for those who are really relaxed at night and want to chuckle at an off movie plot with off characters and off action... This is the movie you went to see before films like these horrible comedies about drunk men and even more drunken women.
hands down the funnyist movie ever I loved it!!!
funniest movie I have ever seen. Although I don't know how the hell it only got rated like what? PG? There's jokes against women, homosexuals, blacks, and the list goes on. And there's that one great part where there's turbulence and the camera shows a plate of jello wiggling violently then pans upward to show a woman's chest doing likewise. Touche. (I'm not using that right)
I saw this for the first time this evening after watching the sequeltwice, i loved the second and i love this one as well!It's basically about a plane in which everyone who ate fish gets foodpoisoning and will die if they don't land within 2 hours, and after the3 crewmen suffer food poisoning it's up to Ted Stricker, a WWII pilotwith a bad past in flying! At first it doesn't look good and gives upbut thanks to Dr. Rumack (Played by Leslie Nielson, it wasn't hisfunniest role but it was his first comedy so i'll give him a break, hewas still quite funny though) who gives him a hearty talk which boostshis confidence and he goes to successfully land the plane, saving manylives!All in all i really liked this film, great fun, just like the second!8/10
First of all -- the movie itself is outstanding. Classic comedy that has stood the test of time. I don't even have to go into it, I don't think.A lot of people will buy this movie for the director's commentary. It's most entertaining to hear the insides of the jokes, film's evolution, mistakes, etc.This one is not it. Instead you just get a bunch of pompous "industry" windbags praising themselves and dropping names. The jokes and bits fly by while they spent nearly the entire time talking about this-agent, this-studio president, all of the fights they had with the guilds, funding issues and other film industry jargon. There's probably about 5 minutes of actual commentary related to the film itself.Bottom line -- these people live in their own world and have completely lost touch with the viewers of the movie. If you are looking for any insight and/or entertainment, and planning to purchase for the commentary -- skip it.
It seems like movie companies nowadays don't have a way of marketingparody movies. In the end, they just look like slapstick comedies, soinstead of making parody films, they do terrible spoof movies, whereevery scene has 30 references people who see it in 10 years won'tunderstand. Though Airplane is a parody of disaster films, like the"Airport" movies, it never actually spoofs a scene from the film. It'smore like a typical disaster film. Everyone is completely serious intheir roles, no matter how goofy what they have to say is. There's nostupid voices and dumb readings, and that's one major thing that makesthis a great parody film.Airplane starts off much jokier than it becomes. Once everyone isaboard the plane, all the characters are introduced through a jokescene. For example, the little boy gives this girl he likes coffee, andshe says, "I like men like I like my coffee...black." That is an oldjoke, but in context it's very funny. Any repetition in the jokes isadmitted. Every time someone misunderstands what someone else has said,the actors end their sentence with, "...but that's not important rightnow." It's purposeful repetition that gets funnier as it goes along.Now, onto the actors. They were all phenomenal. Aside from the two maincharacters, who were fairly new to acting (This was Julie Haggerty'sfirst film), everyone else was a long time serious actor. LeslieNielson plays Rumack, a doctor who happens to be on the plane. LeslieNielson takes the role completely seriously, never once cracking asmile to his ridiculous character. Robert Stack plays Rex Kramer, theman piloting the plane from the ground, trying to make sure everyonegets home safely. Peter Graves plays the weird pedophile airplanecaptain, and Kareem Abdul Jabar plays the co-captain. Lloyd Bridges hasa pretty thankless role as the man down in headquarters trying to getRex Kramer. So, this movie had some good actors, minus Kareem AbdulJabar, who was still good.This is a classic parody movie, and a timeless one, and will live onmuch longer than any "Date Movie" or "Meet the Spartans".My rating: *** 1/2 out of ****. 83 mins. PG for language, brief femalenudity, sexual and crude humor.
i once owned this film airplane on vhs many years before the "don't call me shirleyedition" was officially released on dvd. with seven to eight minutes of footageomitted from it(all the DISASTER humor is GONE!). the true original IS 95 minutesin length! and made in 1980 not 1997 not 2002 not 2004 and not 2007, thats four times in a ten year copyright span. when this film is FINALLY released probablyas a directors cut print and/or as the "true original" i will finally buy a copy.but let it be known I AM NOT FOOLED Mr. Jerry and David Zucker and Mr. Jim AbrahamsNOT FOR ONE SPLIT SECOND!
Still the funniest and most inspired of the madcap genre spoofs. For every dumb or tasteless joke that doesn't fly, a dozen land directly at Laugh Central.
This review is from: Airplane! (Don't Call Me Shirley! Edition) (DVD) Good and funny, you can watch this many times, picking up more of the jokes each time you watch it.
This movie is quite humorous but if you want a great upscale comedy watchMallrats it is much better. I guess people call this a "classic comedy" butthen they might as well call Fraternity Vacation a classic though thismovieshouldnt even be mentioned in the same sentence as that one I found itsomewhat of a disappointment I wasnt as funny as id heard it would be noteven close.
I know the title probably doesn't say much about the movie, but I just wanted to say that. Now, on with the review! Airplane is what I've said in the title of this here review, but it is more than this. This is also the first comedy DVD I've seen. My favorite character had to be the pilot, played by Peter Graves, I do believe. He gave some of the best lines of the movie, especially when the little boy who comes into the cockpit, and the pilot says, "Have you ever been in a cockpit before?", and the little boy says, "I've never been in a cockpit before", and the pilot says, "Have you ever seen a grown man naked"? Hilarious! I believe this was the first movie that the Zuckers and that other guy had ever worked on, with this kind of comedy, and whatnot, and I do believe the other ones such as Naked Gun, Hot Shots, and the other ones came later, so you prob don't know what to expect. If you have seen the others one, then you know what to expect. The final verdict: Buy. You won't be dissapointed. P.S. I know this review probably wasn't very helpful, but there are tons of other reviews every place else, so why waste my time and your time by rehashing what has been said in other reviews.
A movie that offers a thousand jokes per minute, considering the law ofaverages this means that you're in for a serious laugh-fest. Set thestandard for OTT-comedies and proved that the days of Mel Brooks were gone.Personal favorite scenes include the rowdy bar -with fighting girlscouts- inwhich Ted sees Elaine for the first time, notably the bit where Ted takes ofhis Travolta jacket and throws it away before striking the famous pose, onlyto see his jacket being thrown back into his face makes me laugh again andagain, even when typing this.And that other great scene, maybe the funniest of ANY movie, the one wherethe kid gets a look into the cockpit and subsequently gets bombarded withthe most bizarre questions by Captain Clarence Oveur. Infinitely quotable, razorsharp wit and deadpan performances (LeslieNielsen, anyone?) make this one a valued addition to any video collection.Have some drinks, smokes, shrooms, whatever, pop this one in the VCR andwatch it with some friends, you'll die laughing.If only ZAZ would come back one more time...
This movie is actually on a book. The thing about the book is it is nota comedy. Years ago, after seeing this movie a few times I happened toread the book. The plot is exactly the same, and despite being a veryserious story I spent my whole time laughing. (another thing to try isto watch Life of Brian and Ben Hur back to back, the result is thesame).The whole point of this movie is take a story, with real drama, and addlayer upon layer of humour at every moment.Food poisoning causes the cockpit crew on a passenger plane to fallseriously ill. The only person on the plane who can possibly land ithasn't flown anything but single engined fighters in WWII.What is funny about walking through an airport, what is humorous aboutfood poisoning, what is hilarious about post traumatic stress disorder.If you want to find out then watch this movie. It is very very silly,very funny and though maybe a bit dated if you hadn't seen those oldAirport movies from the 1970s.
How can you go wrong with a film that features Leave it to Beaver's Barbara Billingsly as a jive-talking passenger?
This one is a gift and hasn't been opened yet, but it's a classic if you love silly puns, spoofs, and pure entertainment.The reason for this DVD gift? Because the 'receivers' wore out their old one!Jo
..this is Airplane! You don't get much else except a clever menu to start the movie. The extras are also very limited. If you don't have Airplane! on DVD, get this one, it is still a classic. If you have Airplane! on DVD already, save your money.
...a nonstop flurry of slapstick sight gags, puns, innuendoes, exaggerations, and caricatures. A comedy classic.
This review is from: Airplane! (DVD) This comedy launched the Abrahams/ Zucker team on a series of frequently side-splittingly satires. Along with the first Naked Gun, this one is my favorite. Nothing is sacred in this spoof of airline disaster movies, and a plethora of TV stars - Peter Graves, Robert Stack and Lloyd Bridges- adds to the glorious campiness of it all. Youll laugh till it hurts.
