    Couldn't have worked out better, imo. Just love this movie!
    Well yeah they were all old school serious actors. So was Leslie Nielsen.

    I feel they should've did like the "Airport" movies that were a big part of what the "Airplane" movies were about and had a different cast for each movie

    Airplane II was good, but I agree with this. The Hayes/Haggerty relationship wore thin, and there wasn't much substance to the film as a whole.

    Right B. I always thought it was groovy that those actors- who had never done this type of comedy- would do this type of comedy. Peter Graves said he threw the script across the room after first reading it. I imagine they all had a bit of trepidation when they first read the script.

    It's Airplane! of course.

    By chance I watched the 1957 "Zero Hour!" and found where got the material to parody from.

    I enjoy watching Zero Hour! now even more than Airplane!

    I really think they should market the two movies as a double feature.

    But don't call me Shirley!!
