I know these things are usually boring and facile surface-level reads of like whether Stephen King's Cat's Eye is better than Stephen King's Kingdom Hospital, but this one is a true delight. There's just the right amount of editorializing and graphic embellishment, but the beautiful, hilarious jokes are the focus. They even include some trivia from the commentary track (which is also funny).

It's very, very hard to make a case for any other movie being the funniest ever made to see just how many of these jokes land. The author's avowed "least favorite joke" still cracks me up, even after seeing the movie four or five times. Perhaps more so.

Great list, though I'll die on the hill that the "you're Kareem Abdul-Jabbar!" scene is the absolute best in the movie.

I tried watching Airplane! once and we had to give up because it wasn't funny. I don't even remember getting to the part of the movie where anyone was on an airplane, because there was some sort of flashback with an unfunny dance number or something.

Animal House wasn't funny either.

With all that's been written about humor, you'd think some shrinks must have studied what kind of people like what kind of humor. (The Airplane films are a particularly polarizing example of the "different strokes" thing in comedy.) Anybody know anything about this?

I've spent years studying this issue and the problem with people who don't like those things, or Airplane!, is that they're not as good as I am.

Most everyone misses the gag of the jet's exterior shots with the sound effect of a propeller plane.

My mother yanked my sister and me out of our seats of the theater when the boobies appeared that only resulted in repeated and appropriately furtive VHS viewings.

All the gags in which women are the butt (a lot) and the pedo jokes do give me pause now. The movie is a rich document of its time. I don't believe MacFarlane would have had a canvas without it.

Yeah, I did wonder if all the rate-ers were white. I've always felt weird about the "tribal" and "jive" scenes.

And then the guy who was about to set himself on fire, he was in brownface :/

And then Johnny... (He did have the best lines though).

As a young girl, I loved this movie, but all the titty/woman-groping/pedo jokes made me pretty uncomfortable! Especially if I was watching with boys my own age.

Which is probably why I liked Police Squad; they were unable to show tits on TV but they managed to be funny anyway.

In conclusion, straight white guys in the 70s could be brilliantly funny, but still have the blind spots you have when all your writers are straight white guys in the 70s.

OMG I love this movie to pieces. One of my favorite things about it is that even though I've seen it like a dozen times, each time I watch it again, I see something else in the background that is hilarious that I've missed before. This joke list had a few I hadn't noticed before, like the Charles Dickens credit, and the ice cream cone instead of microphone.

I think the "jive talk" scene deserves a better score. I don't think they factored-in that the woman is Barbara Billingsly and, given the general age of the audience at the time, that made the gag soooooo much more delightful than it probably does to today's younger audiences.

Blazing Saddles, because of Pryor's involvement, seems to have a different take on racist stereotypes. The mayor accepting all races of the RR crew "except the Irish", the RR workers asked to sing a n-word worksong and they respond with Cole Porter, the Native Americans are played by Jews, and so on.

You want to go joke for joke with Mel Brooks? Blazing Saddles probably has the most jokes but Young Frankenstein has the best ones. I will go to my grave insisting this.

I think that at least some of the context for "getting" Airplane has to do with seeing 60s and 70s films, particularly the work of Robert Stack and those "serious" actors who are playing against type and disaster porn like the first Airport movie.

Airplane is essentially a remake of the 1957 movie Zero Hour (down to some of the more memorable dialogue, such as "We need to finds someone who can fly a plane and didn't have fish for dinner"). It was on Channel 4 once in the late 80s as I watched with amazement. I assume that the Airplane writers did the same thing I did - get stoned and do an MST3K at it.

In around 5th or 6th grade, we had a class movie night where everyone could nominate a movie to watch and we'd vote. I nominated Airplane! and as soon as I did, our teacher declared we would skip the voting process and watch that. Upon rewatching the movie as an adult -- Karen C., you were a much cooler (and ballsier) teacher than I ever realized to have a classroom of elementary school students watch Airplane!.

61. Mrs. Oveur is having an affair with a horse.

Which they don't mention is also a Godfather reference.

58. The people are on the baggage claim with the baggage waiting for them.


Now arriving, No Frills Airlines.

86. The “Clearance, Clarence. Roger, Roger. Vector, Victor” scene.

This is probably my favorite joke in the whole movie. Sheer genius. "What's your vector, Victor?"

I love this movie so much. I saw it in the theaters with my parents in 1980 when I was ten, saw it several times since, and watched it with my son when he was about eight. It has always held up and I still laugh at most of the jokes.

I think it's definitely worth mentioning how much effort the actors put in to make that joke work too. From the oral history article.
Al White: I looked at the script and couldn’t make hide nor hair of the actual verbiage. [Laughs.] But I got a sense of what they wanted. They wanted jive as a language, which it is not: It’s a word here and a phrase there, originated by the jazz musicians back in the 1920s. So we had to first understand what they wanted, and then Norman and I tried to work together on it, but we couldn’t seem to gel on what we each wanted to do, so I said, “Well, okay, you work on yours and I’ll work on mine.” So what I did was, I went and got a couple of books—one was on black English by J.L. Dillard, and another was on black language—and I just saw what they had in standard English and tried to come up with what I felt was jive. I tried to jive it down, if you know what I mean, using actual words and actual meaning. So what we ended up saying does mean something. It’s not a bunch of gibberish or whatever. It did actually mean something.

What I've always loved about that scene is that no one is really being mocked. There's a social faux pas between Elaine and the Jive speakers with her not understanding what they're saying, but it's her problem and it's OK because the old lady speaks Jive. What they're saying makes perfect sense, and it's not that difficult to understand. It would work just as well with Glaswegians.

Yeah, the Jive scene is both funny and a fairly harmless play on cultural differences. (Al White apparently helping rewrite it no doubt made a huge difference there.)

Literally all of the "tribal" stuff is hella uncomfortable, though.

What surprised me most about the whole thing was how there were ONLY 178 JOKES listed. The movie ran 88 minutes; now some movies are considered "a laugh a minute", but ONLY 2 jokes per minute? I'd think Airplane! would've had a raw joke rate of one every 20 seconds. The IMDB Quotes page for the movie has 84 quotes and that excluded all the sight gags and repetition of running jokes (and most of the worst lines). Then I saw that the list included running jokes as single items (as well as some bits that built up with several laugh lines to a final punch). This seemed to result in some underrated bits: "McCroskey’s 'Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit ______'"got listed once as a 'runner' and was only given a 6, when its comic impact succeeded in increasing with its ongoing heightened absurdity. Also a 6 was "Ted’s cab passenger still waiting the whole movie." Of course, as a Californian watching it first-run, I knew the cab passenger was the unlikely cameo of Howard Jarvis, "Tax Crusader" and co-author of California's awful Proposition 13, and the context of HIM being so passive and credulous lifted every return to the cab an 8+ for me.

I picked the wrong week to quit overthinking funny movies.

I think that "I just want to tell you both, 'good luck'. We're all counting on you" was ranked too low compared to some of the other jokes in the movie. More importantly -- though this is outside the frame of just the movie -- I think that that particular gag foreshadowed the absurdist humor that has become more and more common, especially in televised comedy, since the second half of the 1990s. It's my personal favorite from the film.

I guess if I were doing this exercise it would be hard to separate out how funny something is from its placement in the movie vs how funny something has become after a lifetime of finding ways to get in. My family & my hubby & I mostly subsist off in-joke humor and I first saw this movie when I was very little so I've been quoting it my whole life. I probably would rank alot of the jokes higher based on that, than someone who hadn't done that. I just want to tell you all, good luck. We're all counting on you.

I'll take that a step further and say that to some extent, the funniness of all the jokes in the movie partly depend on the pacing and buildup - i.e., most of these jokes would have landed to some degree even in relative isolation, but the sheer unrelenting density of punchlines as the movie continues carries one along on a wave of amusement and lifts all the jokes into a higher realm.

And yes, I am serious.

God, this movie is very hot and cold for me depending on my mood - in the right mood, everything lands, in the wrong mood, well, I laughed exactly once - at Johnny's "It looks like a big Tylenol!" line, which I believe makes that the definitively best joke in the movie. It's just that he's so full of wonder, and the idea that "a big Tylenol" is what has him so jubilant just gets me right in the funny-feels.

As for the problematic jokes, well... Brown-face doesn't really play anymore, thank God, and the titties shaking in front of the camera were much beloved by 12-year-old me but kind of hacky even then. I think the jive-talking scene (my mom's favorite, so it has a special place for me) works for the reasons urbanwhaleshark and tobascodegama bring up - nobody's the butt of the joke, and the actors, at least, put work into making it specific and real enough to be somewhat respectful. Plus Barbara Billingsley.

The "Ever seen a grown man naked" stuff is just hilarious and I don't care. Especially with the knowledge of the scene in Zero Hour, where the pilot comes off exactly as creepy. Plus the kid is never in danger and has no idea what's going on. An errant look from him would have probably killed that gag.

Agreed that "looks like I picked the wrong week..." is a strong enough runner to have each line included individually. Blowing (up) the Autopilot seems kind of hacky now but must have been about the funniest thing ever when this was released - those saying the misogynistic jokes have aged very poorly are right. Though that additional slap Leslie Nielson gives the panicking woman is perfect comedic timing.

I loved this movie, but can see that it would never be made in this day and age.

But the thing that stands out for me is that in my country (and I think most countries) it was called "Flying High". I was too young to see it in the cinema. But then one of my father's friends who had "connections" managed to get a really bad quality black market copy of "Airplane!" on VHS. I was very confused that they had the same cover art and many of the jokes I'd heard in schoolyard whisperings about Flying High were in Airplane! I didn't know who was ripping off whom. It was a few years later, when it eventually aired on TV here under the name Flying High, that I realised they were the same movie.

We are best friends now.

I love that my boss knows all these movies, so he and I can riff on them while my cow-orkers shake their bewildered heads.

I walked out of his office last week after I said something like "surely they mean (insert veterinary term here)" (in the middle of a serious discussion about a patient) to which he, without a second's pause, replied "agreed, and don't call me Shirley". I then said, as I left "looks like I picked the wrong week to quit sniffing glue", which garnered me some odd looks from the less-enlightened folks I work with, one of whom asked me if the discussion had really gone that badly...

Not Airplane!, but he also, without fail, every time we see a pet named Abby, gives me the conspiratorial side-eye and says "Abby....normal?". I have a cool boss.

I recently worked on a show on TruTV about the making of Airplane. It was a pretty good TV approximation of that AV Club article, with the added bonus of clips from the movie compared to Zero Hour and some ancient footage of the ZAZ team back in their Kentucky Fried Theater days (which is incredible because you can see where a lot of their gags got their start on the stage, including early Steven Stucker!). Also a scene where Robert Hays visits the old cockpit set, which is amaaaaaaaazing.

Unfortunately, the show has a shitty name ("TruInside" WTF is that) and was not advertised or promoted in the slightest; the only thing I can find online of the show is one goddamn clip. Why networks spend the money on cool shows like this and do nothing to promote them is beyond me. Maybe there's a torrent out there, if you want to see it.

See, the problem is he’s literally having trouble drinking.

Ever since I saw this movie, whenever I see someone spilling a drink I comment on their drinking problem. The same goes with people spilling food. If I'm the one doing it, I lament my own drinking problem or eating disorder. No-one laughs (well, I do) but I just keep on saying it. I know that eventually someone will understand that I'm quoting, damnit!

I love how many of the callbacks are so ingrained in our culture that it's just a given that if someone says, "Surely...." you've got a fairly great odds that someone will mutter "don't call me Shirley." I wonder if the joke wasn't ranked higher because the writers are so used to it as a joke construction that it feels more like "how it got in my pajamas I'll never know" - there's no surprise left in it.

Another vote for watching Police Squad if it's possible any of you haven't seen it. I was really surprised not to see our other family favorite "Cigarette?" "Yes, I know." (though for us it's generally Banana? or Dessert? or some other food that sets it off) on the list, only to Google it and find out that nope, it's Police Squad, not Airplane!. PS is also the source of what I consider one of the best comedy interchanges on TV:

-- Who are you and how did you get in here?
-- I'm a locksmith. And I'm a locksmith.

I'm old enough to to have seen this movie in its original theatrical release, and it seems to me that the writers must be a lot younger than me. They missed a lot of the cultural references as already mentioned (June Cleaver speaking Jive was brilliant), although until today I didn't realize that was Howard Jarvis in Ted's cab, which does make it even funnier. Thanks oneswellfoop! I also noticed that they totally missed the jet airliner making prop plane sounds, which I always loved because it was a relatively subtle gag in a movie not generally known for subtlety. And although it is based on Zero Hour, it also parodies the more contemporaneous Airport movies, such as in the scene where the panicking woman gets slapped.

The tribal scenes didn't bother me too much. I took then as being as much about clueless westerners trying to impose their culture on indigenous people without realizing there is already a native culture there.
