10/10.One of the most genius comedies ever made.The Zucker brothers and Abrams were brilliant here.I would call this one amazing movie because everyone keeps a straight face.Not an easy task considering all the funny as hell stuff being said or done throughout the movie.Leslie Nielsen delivers one of the best lines ever in comedy"I am serious, and don't call me Shirley." Robert Hayes, Julie Hagerty, Peter Graves, and Robert Stack are also great here."Billy you ever seen a grown man cry?"I also enjoyed many of the gags, three of the best being people in line waiting to wallop a hysterical passenger,"I gotta get outta here!I gotta get outta here." One passenger who said"It's all right stewardess, I speak jive." The last being the fighting girl scouts.One great running gag is where someone says "We need to get these people to a hospital."What is it?"It's a big building with patients."No doubt about it, Airplane was made for people who love comedy back when they did comedy right.

More trivia for Airplane

Question: When Over's wife gets the call about her husband's plane having problems, there is a horse in bed with her and she tells the horse to let himself out. This is the only joke in the movie I didn't understand. Is there anybody out there who got the joke and can help me understand it?

Answer: This is a reference to The Godfather, where a character being intimidated by the Mafia wakes up with his prize racehorse's severed head next to him on the bed. For comedy purposes this is twisted by the movie as an implied sexual relationship, when the horse is revealed to be alive.

Answer: This is an inside joke that Mrs. Over is cheating on her husband with a horse.
