The Bill and Ted bar fight scene, when picking up Billy the Kid, matches the girl scout fight scene in Airplane!. They begin over a poker cheat (extra ace), have the same punches and bar stool hit, and end with one being slid across the bar until breaking through a wall or juke box. See more »
In the disco bar scene, the bum that gets stabbed in the back can be seen wearing protective padding that sticks out of his clothes. Also, tears in his jacket from previous takes are visible. See more »

No, we can't do that, the risk of a flame-out is too great. Keep 'em at 24,000. No, feet.

In recent UK 'Sky Movies' broadcasts the punchline to the cocaine joke which had her snorting some white powder was cut. Also cut was the line 'Looks like I picked the wrong week to stop sniffing glue'. See more »
Very rarely does a film come out that is as truly brilliant as Airplane. It has everything that a comedy should have. The cast is fantastic, the jokes hilarious and almost constant.
One of the best things about Airplane that I have found is that the jokes are not all obvious, and because of this it has far more re-watchability than most comedies, as every time you watch it you pick up on more of the subtler jokes and background sight gags.
It is a film that manages to cater for almost all tastes in humour, from dry wit to slapstick via spoofery and dark humour. If you haven't seen this film you MUST watch it. This is one of those few films that everybody can enjoy. It's fairly rare to find a comedy the whole family can enjoy, most are either unsuitable for children or too childish for adults, but Airplane manages to find that balance where all ages can enjoy it.
In conclusion, if you have yet to see this film, watch it. If you have seen it, watch it again.
