Airplane! (1980)


A man afraid to fly must ensure that a plane lands safely after the pilots become sick. (IMDb)
A comedy film in the truest sense of the term: Literally not a scene goes by without a joke or two or three, and I wish I could mention them all: The one-off ones are certainly hilarious (see Kramer talking to no one), as are the random background visual gags (see doing the laundry at the control tower), but it’s the repeated ones that really take the cake (see Striker’s unfortunate seatmates), especially the ones that don’t even start out funny (“Looks like I picked the wrong week…”).
8.5/10 (Amazing)
