My understanding was that Airplane! really ripped off Zero Hour, down to the same dialog lines.
How weird was it to watch?

Quoting L-188 (Thread starter):
his wife has just run off with their son named Joey.
Sounds kinda gross

But you can tell that in Airplane all the writers did was take the lines and then in a lot of cases inserted their own wise-arse comments.
|Quoting JRDC930 (Reply 5):|
Despite that, i still think Airplane! was 100 times funnier than Zero Hour ever was( Zero Hour was just poor over the top B movie melodrama), though when i first saw zero hour i did think it was weird the almost word for word copying.
|Quoting L-188 (Reply 6):|
Well Zero hour was never intended to be a comedy, it was a serious drama.
|Quoting Steeler83 (Reply 7):|
And so the storyline of Airplane! was nothing more than a parody of that, with some smattering of other airplane disaster films (i.e. Airport 1975)
