The popcorn will probably stick with you longer than this silly saga but, if you need a few belly laughs, get a boarding pass. Airplane is the ultimate take-off. Full Review

The level of humor is not always consistent, but the filmmakers have thrown almost everything in with a shotgun approach and the routines work more often than not. Full Review

Product Description:

The spoof comedy that set the gold standard for all that followed it, AIRPLANE takes shots at the slew of disaster movies that peppered cinemas in the 70s. When the passengers and crew of a jet are incapacitated due to food poisoning, a rogue pilot (who has a drinking problem and is afraid of flying) must cooperate with his ex-girlfriend turned stewardess to bring the plane to a safe landing. No disaster flick cliche is left unroasted, and the musical score itself takes a less than reverent look at overly melodramatic compositions.

Plot Synopsis:

A tongue-in-cheek spoof of the disaster genre.
A former wartime flight commander has to take control of a jet after every pilot aboard comes down with food poisoning -- even though he's now too scared to fly.
The airplane's passengers include a wild assortment of comic loonies.

Production Notes:

  • The plot of this film -- on which the spoof is hung -- is based on a 1957 movie called "Zero Hour!" The film also borrows from the more recent disaster film "Airport."
  • Although this was a low-budget film, it did better than many of the big budget movies of that year.
  • Available to buy in the UK.
