30 Airplane! Moments To Prove That Good Humor Doesn’t Age

Airplane! is widely considered one of the funniest movies of all time. It’s is a fast-paced comic parody of the very popular disaster movies of the 1970s (Airport, The Poseidon Adventure) and it’s completely and utterly over the top. However, nearly 40 years have passed since its release, so you might’ve forgotten the scenes and lines that had you rolling on the ground. And even though it’s impossible to cover all of them, Bored Panda has compiled a list of some of the best jokes in the movie to refresh your memory. And if you’ll want to rewatch the movie after going through them, feel free to fire it up on Amazon Prime Video.

The brothers Jerry and David Zucker and Jim Abrahams had first met in the 70s and, as “ZAZ” founded the Kentucky Fried Theatre Company, a sketch troupe specialising in spoofs of bad TV commercials. To gather material they used to leave an old VCR taping the telly through the wee small hours. Some time in 1974 they were spinning through the ads when they came across a terrible 1957 disaster movie – Zero Hour – based on a novel by Arthur Hailey (who would also pen the novel Airport, the film of which is often mistaken for Airplane!’s main inspiration).
