Anthony (8 out of 10 ) I absolutly love this movie! I have three dvds (because for some strang reason some random stuff is different in a couple versions, it's the same with the sequel). This is the Zuckers at thier best.
Batmanners (10 out of 10 ) Funniest movie ever. From start to finish, not a minute is without hilarity and unpredictable ludicrous observant stupidity. Just wanted to let you both know, good luck, we're all counting on you.
Mike Dykes (10 out of 10 ) Zucker-Abrams-Zucker (a parody of MGM) decided to wreck the horror genre (Airport) and gave us the funniest movie of the Seventies.
Tormented veteran pilot Ted Stryker (Robert Hayes) escapes from a mental hospital when his ex-girlfriend (Julie Hagerty) goes aboard as a stewardess. Bad food disables the pilot and copilot.
The Stewardess asks over the intercom, "By the way, is there anyone aboard who knows how to fly a plane?"
Panic ensues, ad they draft nerveshot Stryker. He has a drinking problem: he splashes himself with every glass he gets. Dr. Rumac (Leslie Nielsen) gives Stryker "loads of encouragement" that would put most men to the point of suicide, but in this parody, it gets Stryker to take command. He brings in the stricken jet airliner (that sounds like a prop-job) and saves the day.
peter avery (10 out of 10 ) I saw Airplane, or Flying High, as it was called out here in Australia in 1981. It was the funniest thing I had ever seen. My mate took me to see it and said wait till the shit hits the fan. And it actually did!! The whole cinema just exploded into laughter. The dialogue is brilliant and this film set the standard for slap stick comedy. Leslie Nielsen in his first comic role is brilliant. A must see if you like your comedy really funny. It is almost 30 years old, but it still holds true today.
Script seeker (1 out of 10 ) There are a million mistakes in this script. Nearly everything is wrong, from improper or misplaced staging to dialogue, this is a TERRIBLE SCRIPT.
