Airplane is one of the funniest movies I have ever seen. This edition contains 2 disks and will cost you 2 credits.
Be of the disks is actually a music DC containing 4 songs from the 80's.
So, you're not really getting 2 movie DVD disks - just so you know.

"Leslie Nielsen has been around for a long time and in many leads before striking out on a road to comedy. This is but one story. However it was a turning point for him from leading man in "Forbidden Planet" (1956), to serious doctor in" Airplane!" (1980), to Field Guide in "National Geographic's "The Savage Garden" with Leslie Nielsen (1997)

Airplane has a great cast including Robert Stack (playing himself), Lloyd Bridges (glub glub), and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (just as defensive as ever).

This movie is unique. It is the first; I have seen displaying one liners with serious intent. It was not just slapstick or Abbot and Costello. This particular film uses the "Airport" movies as the basis of most of its humor.

It worked well enough for sequels and other films to be made in the new genre. I keep it with the Leslie Nielsen Collection.
A Guilty Pleasure! Highly Recommended!

""Airplane" is one of those movies that is almost embarrassing to admit that you like, much less that it is on your "Top 10". The humor ranges from slapstick sight gags to some really clever play on words that might be missed on the first viewing. I have watched this no less than 20 times or so, and still find little gems each viewing. Airplane is one of the most quotable movies ever since there are so many one-liners and plays on words.

The plot is a send up of the numerous airport/airplane disaster movies of the 1970s and features an all-star cast, including Peter Graves, Leslie Nielsen, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Frank Ashmore, Lloyd Bridges, Jonathan Banks, and Barbara Billingsley.

This movie has a lot of adult humor, racial stereotyping, substance abuse, and worse. None of it is presented in a serious way, but those that are easily offended should skip this movie.

This is one of my guilty pleasures, so Highly Recommended with the caveats above."
