Brilliant film! Ted Striker: "Surely you can't be serious?"
Dr. Rumack: "I am serious... and don't call me Shirley."
Voted "one of the ten funniest movies ever made" by the American Film Institute, Airplane! is a masterpiece of off-the-wall comedy. Featuring Robert Hays as an ex-fighter pilot forced to take over the controls of an airliner when the flight crew succumbs to food poisoning; Julie Hagerty as his girlfriend/ stewardess/ co-pilot; and a cast of all-stars including Robert Stack, Lloyd Bridges, Peter Graves, Leslie Nielsen, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar...and more!
Their hilarious high jinks spook airplane disaster flicks, religious zealots, television commercials, romantic love...the list whirls by in rapid succession. And the story races from one moment of zany fun to the next
