Airplane was released
in 1980, and
Airplane II in 1982. The original had
a huge cast, including Robert Stack, Lloyd Bridges,
Leslie Nielsen, and even Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. This
is one of the nuttiest parody film series ever produced.
There are so many jokes, if you laugh too loud or too
long, you miss something. This was a
quintessential 80's flick. Cast additions to the
sequel included greats like William Shatner.
