Did You Know?

Trivia

The fictitious airline is Erebus Air. The name is derived from Mount Erebus--a volcano in Antarctica. On November 28, 1979, Air New Zealand Flight 901 crashed on its flanks, killing all 257 passengers & crew. Most of the wreckage remains on Mount Erebus to this day. See more »

Goofs

The airliner is completely white (save for a blue design near the tail), but in several close-ups the cockpit is shown to be in a blue stripe. Also, the aircraft is what appears to be an Airbus A340, but close-ups from outside the cockpit show it be that of a much older propeller-driven airliner. See more »

Best Movie Ever!
2 February 2015 | by DawnSee all my reviews

I am so very sorry but there are serious spoilers in this comment. Avert your innocent eyes if you plan to watch this cinematic work of art and tenacity.

Don't Look!!!!

OK. You looked. It's on you now.

I have never in my life laughed more than I did at this movie. It was down right therapeutic. I think the last time I laughed this hard was...was...was...no...no. Nothing dumped poop on my eyes and brain like this movie did. This is the first time I've ever been this sorry for the actors. Dean Cain and Robin Givens... Times must be really rough to sign on for this ride. The other actors in this thing were clearly paid $20 if they spoke and $10 if they didn't.

Clearly the Janitor wrote this story and was paid for his expertise with a smoking jacket and a pipe. This movie should have ended at 13 minutes but NO! It had more to give to US, the beleaguered viewers.

You see, there was an airplane. There was a volcano. Plot done. But no! There's more! Now you have to ask yourself certain logic questions like, "How flippin' long does it take to fly over a volcano?? (I am laughing so hard, I can hardly see). Why did the captain set the autopilot to circle exploding volcanic ash clouds? Why is that kid even there? Why aren't the other passengers wondering what's up with the telephone/ tablet guy? Why is there a Marshall on the plane? To give the lunatic something to do, I reckon. Why am I watching this train wreck? WHHHYYY?? I'm totally rubber- necking at this point.

Then Dean Cain keeps on sitting in that pilot chair even though he isn't actually doing anything. The auto pilot, you know. Dang that autopilot!!!

At some point, the incompetent flight attendant fixed man's broken arm and made it WORSE THAN IT ALREADY WAS. Then she put a band-aid on it and called that a day. Then she has to turn off the auto pilot by reaching behind some freaky wire combobulation but instead, jettisons the fuel while Dean Cain fiddles his thumbs in the pilot chair due to the unlockable autopilot.

But there's more! The lunatic locked in the bathroom for 1/3rd of the movie. What is he doing in there in all that time??? WHAT????

My very favorite part was the plan to get off the plane with a raft and a parachute! GENIUS!!! We all get to float down to safety. ASTOUNDING!! We won't float down into volcanic magma that airplane is circling. Oh no!! At this point, I am laughing so hard that I need my asthma rescue inhaler. Remember, folks: Henry, the janitor wrote this movie and was paid with a pipe and a smoking jacket. Maybe a donut.

I could not BREATHE when the lunatic gets blown up in a raft in the water. My eyes brimmed. My body went limp with love for having this movie come into my life.

This "film" must be owned!!! I WILL buy this straight to video movie! Oh yes! It shall sit in my collection next to Ed Wood movies, Godzilla vs Anybody, and Plan 9 From Outer Space. It is a visual masterpiece that deserves a spot in your collection.

Watch it just one time and your depression will be lifted while your common sense is beaten into a bloody pulp right in front of you. You will think to yourself that this movie is a crime, a travesty of justice, that just keeps going on and on and on. (much like this post actually).

No, you won't ever get the time you spent watching this crime but, by golly, it's two hours you will never forget. Rent it! Watch it with close friends who have the same mental disease that you do. Get a monster sized vat of popped corn and a box of tissue for the tears of laughter.

There are commercials with better plot lines than this movie. But that is all a part of the fun.
