Spectacular spoof...launched a dynasty,
This review is from: Airplane! [DVD] (DVD)
The first disaster spoof movie, this is so funny it hurts. Leslie Nielsen hits the spot as the doctor on the plane where everyone's eaten dodgy fish including the pilot, and the leads are camp but reined in. The Zucker/Abrams combo is genius, and the gags have been much-copied by numerous other movies.
The extras were interesting, but not worth buying just for them alone. The double-set of Airplane and the sequel, the imaginatively titled Airplane II, is probably better value, but if you want the extras, go for this, because they're not on the double-film disc.
