10/10.One of the most genius comedies ever made.The Zucker brothers and Abrams were brilliant here.I would call this one amazing movie because everyone keeps a straight face.Not an easy task considering all the funny as hell stuff being said or done throughout the movie.Leslie Nielsen delivers one of the best lines ever in comedy"I am serious, and don't call me Shirley." Robert Hayes, Julie Hagerty, Peter Graves, and Robert Stack are also great here."Billy you ever seen a grown man cry?"I also enjoyed many of the gags, three of the best being people in line waiting to wallop a hysterical passenger,"I gotta get outta here!I gotta get outta here." One passenger who said"It's all right stewardess, I speak jive." The last being the fighting girl scouts.One great running gag is where someone says "We need to get these people to a hospital."What is it?"It's a big building with patients."No doubt about it, Airplane was made for people who love comedy back when they did comedy right.


Revealing mistake: When Kramer is walking through the airport and all the cult members come after him and he's flipping them behind him, look down to the lower left and you can see the mat they are landing on. (00:54:50)

Question: Captain Oveur was saying things to Joey. What I didn't understand is the jokes behind the lines "Have you ever been in a Turkish Prison" and "Do you like movies about gladiators." What are the jokes behind these? Please explain. Thank-you.

Chosen answer: All of his questions to Joey are filled with homosexual innuendos; the perverted captain is trying to see if Joey has any such tendencies. In a Turkish prison, men who are sexually frustrated will resort to "companionship" with other men (even forcefully). Movies about gladiators depict ripped, muscular men, and the question about seeing a "grown man naked" obviously fits the pattern.
