Greatest Movie Ever Made in the History of the World, Ever!
1 September 2004 | by apotatojudgeSee all my reviews

This has to be one of the most entertaining movies I have ever seen. My friends and I, hating our lives, decided what better way to lift our spirits than by seeing a shitty movie? I suggested a movie I saw part of on Cinemax, so we rented it.

The rest is history.

I have never had a night like the night I watched Turbulence 3. It is, by far, one of the worst films I have ever seen, yet I find myself watching it every time it comes on television (which is very, very often - especially if you have those multi-channel Cinemax packages). Seriously, I don't know why, but I probably watch this movie at least every two weeks.

And it never fails to bring in the laughs.

This movie is highly recommended if you have nothing to and are looking for some seriously fun laughs, a la Mystery Science Theater 3000 (witty banter not included though).

My favorite line is when Jack Fletcher, a pilot with an latent speech impediment, says, "Hewwo, Slade? This is Jack Fwetcher, and I'm a pirate." Favorite scene: The FCC.
