Airplane is one of the AFI’s 100 Years, 100 Laughs selections.
I’d never seen it before. (But you can’t judge because I HAVE seen it now.)
It’s basically a spoof of the disaster movies from the 1970s. I’m not very familiar with that genre, but I still thought Airplane was incredibly funny. (And while I did know that the “…and don’t call me Shirley” line was from this movie, it was still nice to see it for myself.)
I enjoyed this movie but more than anything, it made me want to watch all the real disaster movies. (I may watch Poseidon Adventure tomorrow.)
Anyway. Very fun movie and I think it absolutely deserves to be one of the 100 funniest movies. But I’m not entirely sure it’s funnier than Ghostbusters, Bringing Up Baby and Young Frankenstein. But whatever; I still literally LOLed.
