I love that movie. I have owned it for 24 years and I see a new gag everytime I watch it.

"It's coming right for us!!" *Jumps out window.*

Only one of countless brilliant moments. Shame they don't make films like that anymore. Hot Shots and Naked Gun are other good examples of that style of comedy.

You just walked right into that!

I won't go into any quotes, because I'm sure most of us know (most of it!) by heart, but really, it was a superb movie and bias aside (being an aircraft enthuasiast), its comedy has not been bettered in those thirty years. A superb achievement!

I have a shirt that I wear all the time that says "I am serious, and don't call me Shirley"

One day I was wearing it and I walked into the lounge of my floor in my dorm and they had just started watching Airplane. I took it as a sign to stop working and watch it again

I havent flown in years. Those were single engine fighters this is a four engine jet, its an entirely different kind of flying. The mood in the place was downright ugly, you could count on a fight breaking out just about every night. You didn't walk in there unless you knew how to use your fists. I didn't walk in there looking for love that night, but fate was on my side. I would consider my career complete if someday I could fly with Ted Stricker.

I just gave my DVD of that movie to KevinL1011.

It was funny when I was 7 years old when it came out but I just don't find it funny anymore.

I still find it as funny as I did when I saw it on the big screen in 1980, that said, I usually only watch it once a year.

I suggest watching 'Zero Hour' http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0051221/ (which Airplane is based upon) and watching Airplane after wards, makes it all the funnier.

It think it's the same with most movies. You shouldn't watch it too often, no matter how much you like it, as you will get tired of it in the end. Haven't seen Airplane for a few years now myself, so maybe it's due on the screen soon at my place.

I have a massive DVD collection (nearing a 1000), however Airplane is one I will pull down once a year, because it still works on so many levels.
