Well Airplane was made by Abrahams/Zucker/Zucker (as were the other films and programs in this set).

But after the success of Airplane the studios wanted an Airplane 2, but Abrahams/ Zucker/ Zucker wanted nothing to do with it so the sudio got another group of people to write it and direct it.

While I think Airplane 2 is a good film, maybe Abrahams / Zucker / Zucker did not want it in this box set.

It seems this box set contains the 6 part TV series Police Squad (the prequal to the Naked Gun films).

These 6 half hour shows are little classics, each one a mini-Airplane type program with lots of jokes going on all over the place.

In fact part of the reason the TV series was not that successful on American TV was that there was TOO much going on for most people who just wanted to sit at home and have a comedy waft over them (like say Friends - no critisism of Friends).

But the 6 police squad shows bear repeated watching as each time you spot another joke you did not spot the first time (the same as you do with Airplane).

The Top Secret film is also a lost classic. Not a good as Airplane, but it has some wonderful jokes in it.

It is a combination of a Nazi war film, and a 60s Rock and Roll movie, quite bizarre.

Here is one of my favorite jokes from Top Secret

Well they actually agreed to a sequel, then changed their minds.

Many years ago,whilst waiting for a Tyson fight,me and 5 of my mates started watching "Airplane",2 of us stayed up,and cried laughing at the "What a time to give up sniffing glue" scene.After rewinding it(VHS) for the 15th time,we collapsed into new paroxyms of laughter,as we realised the pilot was upside down.

This remains my favourite funny moment in my film watching life.

Brilliant films. H&R
