Absolutely hilarious old movie, with surprisingly good special effects for a movie of its age. Be warned though, this movie is loaded to the gills with adult "XXX" and kid friendly humor. It's all basically Disney level up until a naked woman bares her breasts for a brief for seconds midway through the movie. I'm all for woman's rights, and believe that a womans body shouldn't be treated as an object or toy. But still, if you feel this way, and wish to keep your kid in the dark about the birds & the bees till they unknowingly consumate a child because they weren't taught about it by their parents. If that's the case, then this movie is NOT for you. On the other hand, if you're easy going, and enjoy some light hearted adult humor on a kid friendly scale "they won't know what's going on." then this movie will probably be well worth your while!
This movie is a classic, but it has a backstory.
This movie is based (loosely) on the movie "Zero Hour."
If you want to have a real laugh: 1 Buy "Airplane" and "Zero Hour" 2 Get a bunch of your friends together for "movie fun," and a bunch of food & drink. 3 Watch "Airplane" first. 4 Then watch "Zero Hour" so all your friends can laugh at the EXTREME DRAMA!
You must watch "Airplane" first, or you won't get how funny "Zero Hour" is.
Most of the "gags" in "Airplane," are plays on the drama of "Zero Hour." "Zero Hour" was supposed to be a good dramatic movie. Well they screwed that up! Now we get to enjoy "Zero Hour" as a comedy, because it never qualified as a drama, well a "good" drama.
At this writing: "Zero Hour" is $99 on Amazon sold as a single DVD.
The beginning of this movie with Ted Striker as a WWII pilot that just cannot seem to hold on to a Airline job even though that is what he can do best. How Him and Elaine met, where, with spoofs of just about every movie that has been made recently (even The Godfather lol). Johnny Zucker throws in some hilarious gags for distraction along with other favorites that are familiar but gone. Kareen Abdul Jabar in his Laker uniform no longer in denial; other gags that you really must watch. Food poisoning and magic tricks are here, too. Listen and watch carefully for something hilarious; even Barbara Billingsley that speaks in jive to the brothers. lol Just make sure you are in the mood for laughing because this is what this movie will make you do without your consent. lol Enjoy!
