Have you ever been so bored that you wanted to kill yourself? I guarantee you will not feel this way when watching Airplane!. It is essentially like watching a live-action cartoon with the way background characters behave and the physics of the plane itself. Plenty of well timed over-exaggerations are to be found here. This film has no problem making fun of itself. Combine the humor with the outrageous plot of war veteran Ted Striker having to land a plane due to a mysterious outbreak of food poisoning and you have a complete package of comedic gold. Surely, I can’t be serious, but I am. This film literally has everything, jokes, innuendos, romance, war flashbacks and even Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. His appearance should be a solid reason alone to see this film. Over thirty years later, Airplane! is funny and is an excellent example of just how much movies with a PG rating could get away with back then.
