Airplane!

The quintessential movie spoof that spawned an entire genre of parody films, the original Airplane! still holds up as one of the brightest comedic gems of the '80s, not to mention of cinema itself (it ranked in the top 5 of Entertainment Weekly's list of the 100 funniest movies ever made). The humour may be low and obvious at times, but the jokes keep coming at a rapid-fire clip and its targets--primarily the lesser lights of '70s cinema, from disco films to star-studded disaster epics--are more than worthy for send-up. If you've seen even one of the overblown Airport movies then you know the plot: the crew of a filled-to-capacity jetliner is wiped out and it's up to a plucky stewardess and a shell-shocked fighter pilot to land the plane. Robert Hays and Julie Hagerty are the heroes who have a history that includes a meet-cute à la Saturday Night Fever, a surf scene right out of From Here to Eternity, a Peace Corps trip to Africa to teach the natives the benefits of Tupperware and basketball, a war-ravaged recovery room with a G.I. who thinks he's Ethel Merman (a hilarious cameo)--and those are just the flashbacks! The jokes gleefully skirt the boundaries of bad taste (pilot Peter Graves to a juvenile cockpit visitor: "Joey, have you ever seen a grown man naked?"), with the high (low?) point being Hagerty's intimate involvement with the blow-up automatic pilot doll, but they'll have you rolling on the floor. The film launched the careers of collaborators Jim Abrahams (Big Business), David Zucker (Ruthless People), and Jerry Zucker (Ghost), as well as revitalised such B-movie actors as Lloyd Bridges, Peter Graves, Robert Stack, and Leslie Nielsen, who built a second career on films like this. A vital part of any video collection. --Mark Englehart

Airplane 2

The 1982 sequel to Airplane! is basically more of the same class-clown ironies but with a more forced feeling to the jokes. In the first film, veterans such as Peter Graves, Robert Stack, and Lloyd Bridges were feeling their way through self-parody, and the air of experimentation was part of the fun. By this film, however, everybody knows what's up, and the assuredness of new cast members Raymond Burr, William Shatner, and Chuck Connors is almost counterproductive. Still, there's lots to laugh about. --Tom Keogh

Airplane 1 and 2 are comic masterpieces.
They contain all aspects of comedy from slapstick, one-liners, cheesyness, spoofs, repetition and wit. These films are the soul reason why i make jokes because they point out the obvious flaws in everyday life. The idea of a comedy based purely on a plane seems quite limitless, but in these films there are no limits to the comedy!
Airplane 1/2 will have you laughing for hours. I am laughing now, as i am remembering what happens!!!!! These masterpieces are neccessary - because you know that if you fail to laugh out loud once during the film, then you need to be taken to the doctors!! The film is just dangerously funny - you must stretch before hand so that you don't hurt your stomach from the sheer amount of laughter!!!
Purchase these filma and never be stuck for comedy, as they produce it by the barrelful!
Thank you
Adios!

If you like Romance, Drama, Comedy, Action + a bit of nudity in your films then this is for you.
Airplane 1 is about a plane disaster where the the crew and most passengers become violently ill with food poisoning, and an ex war pilot who drives people to suicide with his flashbacks, must take control of it and land it with the help of his girlfriend, a doctor and Otto Pilot the inflatable auto pilot, to save the passnegers lives.
Aiplane 2 is a space plane to the moon, and the navigational system shorts out and takes them to the sun, it can open airlocks and gas intruders, but thats not all, theres a suicidal bomber with a $1 million life insurance policy, and worse yet they're all out of coffee!

Airplane!
Every thing you ever wanted to know about air travel
Leslie Nielsen has been around for a long time and in many leads before striking out on a road to comedy. This is but one story. However it was a turning point for him from leading man in "Forbidden Planet" (1956), to serious doctor in" Airplane!" (1980), to Field Guide in "National Geographic's "The Savage Garden" with Leslie Nielsen (1997)
Airplane has a great cast including Robert Stack (playing himself), Lloyd Bridges (glub glub), and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (just as defensive as ever).
This movie is unique. It is the first; I have seen displaying one liners with serious intent. It was not just slapstick or Abbot and Costello. It worked well enough for sequels and other films to be made in the new genre. I keep it with the Leslie Nielsen Collection.
------------------------------------------------------------
Airplane II
On a higher plane than then the original
This is a more futuristic version of the original Airplane movie with A few different people and a few different jokes while keeping to the original formula.
Not as surprising as the first, but still worth watching. People who made their living being heroes including Lloyd Bridges (Sea Hunt), Leslie Nielsen (Forbidden Planet), Raymond Burr (Perry Mason), now let their hair down in this thought provoking sequel.
This may have contributed to the conversion of William Shatner from Captain Kirk (Star Trek - The Original Series, Episode 28: The City On the Edge Of Forever) to "The Big Head" on 3rd Rock From The Sun. I am waiting for the collection of his commercials to be published.

Airplane! quite possible my favourite film of all time and guaranteed to put me in a good mood. I can't count the number of times of seen it, but I can't get enough.
As for Airplane II, it never seems to b shown on telly these days, so getting the two together seemed like a good bargain. The sequel is more of the same really. Same basic plot and often the same jokes but not done in a bad way - more of a homage to the original film. BUT, the writers of Airplane! (Zucker Abrams Zucker) changed their mind about writing a sequel so the studio passed the writing duties onto other people, so the second film falls short of what it should have been. As long as you don't watch the to back to back (as I did) it shouldn't spoil your enjoyment.

As for picture and sound, well the films were made in 1980/1982 so are standard definition, the sound is good quality but not going to win any awards. There are no bonus features, just the films, but as they're so entertaining you wouldn't need anything else.

I remember the helpless laughter of my first view of these films. They are still hilarious. I watched the first one with my 19 year old son, trying not to hype it up beforehand and we both fell about laughing. Joyous, hilarious and classic.

"Is that a good sign?" "It does the job!" Hilarious! You have to be on the wavelength but the whole thing is so ridiculous that you have to laugh.
