I saw this when it originally came out, for me, this is still the funniest movie I have ever seen. Multiple viewings are needed to make sure you catch all of the gags. So many classic catch phrases originated here.

Watched this on Super 8 mm film I borrowed from a Toronto library back in 1989 or sometime around there. Brings back childhood memories of using a film projector to watch this movie on the wall. A timeless classic.

Airplane! is a splendidly tacky, totally tasteless, completely insignificant flight, a gooney bird of a movie that looks as if it could never get off the ground and then surprises and delights with its free-spirited aerobatics.

Funny. I laughed at the "Calm down!" part, and a whole lot of others.

Sooo fun, so silly. Good for a night when you're feeling blue. Small quibble: breasts don't pout. One scene that doesn't date well: when passengers line up to commit various forms of assault on a hysterical woman.

Ted Striker: I flew single engine fighters in the Air Force, but this plane has four engines. It's an entirely different kind of flying, altogether.

Rumack, Randy: [together] It's an entirely different kind of flying.

Reporter: What kind of plane is it?
Johnny: Oh, it's a big pretty white plane with red stripes, curtains in the windows and wheels and it looks like a big Tylenol.

Rumack: You'd better tell the Captain we've got to land as soon as we can. This woman has to be gotten to a hospital.
Elaine Dickinson: A hospital? What is it?
Rumack: It's a big building with patients, but that's not important right now.

An airplane crew takes ill. Surely the only person capable of landing the plane is an ex-pilot afraid to fly. But don't call him Shirley.

Other: A few characters use drugs in scenes meant for comedic relief, such as cocaine and glue.
