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.Written by

Right after they blow the computer, Ted tells Elaine she'd better check the readout. When she gets up, the back of her shirt is untucked. A moment later, when she is standing at the engineer's station, the back of her shirt is tucked in. See more »

The original US home video version contains a myriad of music alterations and deletions, so much so that only two of nine pieces of music were retained. All nine have been kept on the DVD. Here's a brief list of the alterations.
The "Battlestar Galactica" theme played during opening titles and scroll has been replaced with generic music.
The air traffic controller playing DJ gag (at six minutes into the movie) originally featured him announcing "Baby Love" by The Supremes. On the original home video, they looped his voice to announce "Moon River" and generic music is played instead.
Different music during end credits.
The scrolling end credits were retyped up so as to remove all of the song credits from the music that was edited out or replaced.
Airplane II - The sequel is quite literally more of the same, same cast (I'm glad to say) except Leslie Nielson (shame that) same jokes (Most of which still work well) same plot (Only this time we are in space) and the same hero.
Given all of the above, you may wonder why bother? Put simply - it's still funny, it's still better than a lot of spoof movies and OH YES! why change a winning formula.
Aiplane 2 is inferior to its predecessor in every way, but if you enjoyed the first film, you'll be entertained by the sequel (Just not quite as much) 8/10
