This is one of my all-time favorite movies. I know most movie buffs here would disregard this as crap now but the film still makes me laugh. I just recently saw this and learned this wasn't an original film but a remake spoof of another film from 30 years earlier.

Whoever doesn’t think Airplane is funny couldn’t be called a movie buff

A post I made last year:

I don't know if its because I have watched Airplane! more times than I can count or that Abrahams and Zucker saw the same things that I did, but this movie was sneaky funny. I was laughing at the lines that they used in that movie and ones that they didn't. While they obviously made significant changes to the story to make it a parody, they actually kept some things from Zero Hour! that worked in both movies from a comedic standpoint.

It was hard not watching the scenes from Zero Hour and not laughing because I knew the airplane dialogue.
