Storyline

Years have passed since Ted Striker heroically saved many lives by avoiding a plane crash. Working as a test pilot for a new Lunar Shuttle, he gets innocently sent into a mental ward after a crash of the badly constructed, computer-navigated spaceship. When he hears that the exactly same type of shuttle is scheduled for a moon flight soon, he breaks out to hinder the launch. Aboard, Ted finds his ex-ex Elaine Dickinson working as stewardess again and her fiancé Simon, a member of the committee that wants the Mayflower I to be launched. In flight, the ship's computer ROK 9000 takes control, killing the crew. Ted and Elaine manage to switch it off, and now it is up to Ted again to save the passengers' lives - if there only wouldn't be these flashbacks to the war and these people who know Ted and have no faith in his abilities at all.

Goofs

During its runaway course, the passenger shuttle travels through an asteroid belt just before heading straight for the sun, implying that there is a major asteroid field between Earth and the Sun. There are no asteroid fields of any kind between Earth and the Sun. The main asteroid belt is located between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter. There are also several other minor asteroid fields, but all of them are located near the edge of our solar system and/or beyond the orbit of Neptune. See more »

A sequel that IS as good as the original
10 September 2011 | by (london) – See all my reviews

I've just watched 'Airplane 1' and 'Airplane 2: The Sequel"' for the umpteenth time. They are both 10/10 films for me, but I'm reviewing these films under 'Airplane 2' as this is the only time I've enjoyed watching a sequel that is is virtually a rerun of the first film with a few changes. In this case I laughed out loud even more.

Both are great examples of modern slapstick films - full of numerous obvious gags which means that, if you like this sort of movie, they stand watching many times over, often revealing subtle little visual or audio jokes you didn't spot first time. The casting is excellent with many actors extending their career in a new vein. In Airplane 2 the visual gags were even better and towards the end William Shatner gave an inspired performance.

These films were the first in a long line of similar spoof movies from the same makers, and although there is some tailing off, most of them are very funny in the same way as 'Airplane'.
