Who else has seen it? Was that a 737 they showed briefly when they showed the outside of the plane? Of course, we know they were flying in a widebody.
I love movies like this that make fun of airlines, like the stewardesses (ummmm....I mean, Flight Attendants), chatting with each other instead of serving customers. Or like in Meet the Parents where the ticket agent spent a long time typing on the computer.
Last year 1,944 New Yorkers saw something and said something.

The preview I saw yesterday while watching the other Jack Nicholson movie had a 747. Is the movie different? As I think Adan Sandler is about as entertaining as a rutabaga, I'll never see "Anger Management". In addition, from what I saw the Nicholson character was nothing more than a reprise of the one he played in the Stephen King movie where he wandered around threatening people with an axe, whatever that was.
PS: If you are not with a woman do not go see "About Schmidt" either. And if you are with a woman prepare to give the usual platitudes about how sad it was etc etc.
I am glad I was around to fly before de-regulation.

We went to see this flick tonight. Whenever I see a preview for an Adam Sandlar film, I cringe. I do not want to see it. But when I am laughing my a*s off, I don't know why I wanted to miss it!
My b/f did not want me to say anything, so I am saving it for now. Did anyone see all the tails at the beginning? I saw VS and LOT. There were others but I can't remembe right off. I also noticed the outside shot of a 737 but an interior of a wide body.

Talk about anger management... The opening scenes on the airplane were so far beyond belief that they nearly enraged me! The rest of the movie was OK, but that first part I just sat there saying, "Naw, oh, you gotta be kidding me!"

From what I remember, the outside views of the plane were far enough away it could have been a 737, 767, or even 777, and then the inside views showed a 2-3-2 cabin so it was a 767.
I think the scene with the FA and sky marshal hassling Sandler echoes the present fear and resentment a lot of passengers now have, of airline or airport employees potentially being able to totally overreact and do whatever they want to them while using 9/11, etc. as an excuse.
