The plane shown taking off in the opening credits is not the same type of plane shown flying in the air, and the plane shown landing is yet a third type. This could be a goof, but in the 1980s it likely would have been a connecting flight. See more »
Like opera... You either love it or hate it. Laugh hysterics but only to those who catch on quickly.
This is your typical "Airplane", Mel Brooks, Three Stooges, fast-paced and sometimes so incredibly "stupid-funny" (corny) type humor. If you didn't laugh the first time you watch this, then you may have to watch it again. There are quite a few things that you need to observe to "get it". I don't want to give up the jokes but without being too cerebral they are sometimes so subtle. Jeff Goldblum plays the ultimate straight man while Ed Begley, Jr. does a fabulous job for the underdog comedy relief. The characters are uncommon and original, especially for the time era. This movie was ahead of its time and I can't say enough about how it can put you in a great mood (knowing there are worse things in the world). Keep an open mind, sit back and let the film take you outside of the real world. Enjoy the show.
