Good girl Sandy Olsson (Olivia Newton-John) and greaser Danny Zuko (John Travolta) fell in love over the summer. When they unexpectedly discover they're now in the same high school, will they be able to rekindle their romance?
Drowning his sorrows after that botched mission during WWII, the traumatised former fighter pilot with a fear of flying, Ted Striker, still hasn't got over his old flame and flight attendant, Elaine Dickinson. Determined to win her back, Ted boards a domestic flight from Los Angeles to Chicago, only to come face-to-face with a severe case of in-flight food poisoning that is threatening everyone's lives. Now, with most of the passengers and the entire cockpit crew down with the food-borne illness, Striker has no other choice but to confront his inner demons and take over the control of the ungovernable aircraft with the help of a gruff air-traffic controller and his former commander. Can Ted land the plane and save them all?Written by
In Spain the title was "Land As You Can!" ("¡Aterriza Como Puedas!"). The "as you can" joke became so popular that several comedies with the ZAZ kind of humor have the same title. The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad! (1988) is "Catch Him as You Can!" (¡Agárralo como puedas!), 2001: A Space Travesty (2000) is "2001: Take flight as you can" (2001: Despega como puedas).

My orders came through. My squadron ships out tomorrow. We're bombing the storage depots at Daiquiri at 1800 hours. We're coming in from the north, below their radar.
When will you be back?
I can't tell you that. It's classified.

In the TV version, when the plane crashes into the gate area, the lady runs with her baby. In the theatrical release, she throws it in the air and starts running. See more »
Still one of funniest spoof movies ever made, Airplane is one of the first and one of the best around.
Hot Shots, Loaded Weapon even Naked Gun have tried to follow in its footsteps, but they have failed to hit the mark. That's not to say that they are bad movies, just that its difficult to follow a movie of this calibre.
Spoof movies definitely have there place in everyone's collection, but this is probably the best you'll ever see in the genre, if you have never seen it and you fancy a laugh, I can't recommend a better film, even though it has dated; it's still hilarious 9/10
