Overview
Voted "one of the the 10 funniest movies ever made" by the American Film Insitute, "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 spoof airplane disaster flicks, religious zealots, television commercials, romantic love... the lists whirl by in rapid succession. And the story races from one moment of zany fun to the next!
