No Overhead Luggage Jokes!

by mehaul on Apr 12, 2010

TITLE: Airplane! GENRE: Comedy, Disaster spoof CAST: Julie Hagerty, Ribert Hayes, Leslie Nielsen, Lloyd Bridges, Robert Stack, Peter Graves, Barbara Billingsley, Ethel Merman, Lorna Patterson, David Leisure, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Otto Pilot and the plane itself in four separate incarnations (and one stunt plane, uncredited) PLOT: Remain Calm RETURN ON INVESTMENT: 8.5 of 10;The idea of taking aging 'B' movie stars and letting them express their human, funny side was a stroke of genius, Who knew that Leslie Neilsen was a maestro flatulator? At two minutes betwen jokes or sight gags and lasting 90 minutes, you got 45 chuckles here. If you paid $9 for the DVD, that's twenty cents per laugh, a good investment indeed! DVD BONUS: An overdubbed commentary, an interscene and deleted scene commentary, a trivia track and a theatrical trailer all add up to over four hours of extra watching bits and pieces. ADDED NOTES: The plane gets no screen credits. It does a marvelous job as a tri-engine model at takeoff and landing, It uses a prop plane vocal imitation throughout the movie, it imitates a jumbo jet during the window crashing scene excellent stunt plane-ing), It appears as a hassidic airline version of itself and does it's take on a Jaws imitation in the opening scene. Hilarious and uncredited!
