Oveur was over Unger, and I was under Dunn.
Another hilarious spoof of disaster films, this one takes most of the cast of the original “Airplane!” and puts them in the future where space shuttle travel is the hot new thing. Robert Hayes and Julie Hagerty reprise their roles as Ted Stryker and Elaine Dickinson, two bumbling and likeable characters who fall in love (like so many times before…) during the inevitable breakdown of… well… EVERYTHING on the Mayflower 1’s maiden voyage to the moon. Some of the jokes are tired retreads of the earlier film’s efforts, but most are rapid fire gags that hit the mark every time.
I’m still surprised that NBC didn’t develop a sitcom based on Stephen Stucker’s character of Johnny…
“Tell me everything that’s happened so far, Johnny.”
“Well, first the Earth cooled, then the dinosaurs came, but they got too big and fat, so they died and turned to oil. And then the Arabs started buying Mercedes Benzes. And then Prince Charles started wearing all of Lady Di’s clothes, I couldn’t believe it…”
Not THAT bad!
Sequels are rarely as good as the first movie. Everyone should know that, specially while watching Airplane 2. In my opinion, Airplane 2 still has the same quality of humor as Airplane does and it only repeats a few jokes. It never seemed repetitive for me, but maybe for most people it can get old to see two movies with the exact same type of humor and the same type of universe and imagery. I thought it was really funny that they went into space this time, and they could have done a lot more science fiction movie related jokes, but they didn’t, and I suppose that’s okay. I didn’t expect it to be as good as the first one, really. Of course the first one was better, but I wouldn’t say it was much better. I’ve seen much worse sequels for comedy movies. I personally thought it did fine as a sequel and I’d recommend it to anyone who liked the first one.
