“AIRPLANE! is a comedy in the great tradition of high school skits, the Sid Caesar TV show, Mad magazine, and the dog-eared screenplays people’s nephews write in lieu of earning their college diplomas. It is sophomoric, obvious, predictable, corny, and quite often very funny. And the reason it’s funny is frequently because it’s sophomoric, predictable, corny.” – Roger Ebert

“Way back in 1992, we anointed the comedic masterpiece AIRPLANE! the funniest movie ever, and with good reason. The ZAZ boys — writer-directors Jerry Zucker, Jim Abrahams, and David Zucker — are to humor what Phil Spector is to music. There’s so much going on in every frame of AIRPLANE!, watching it feels like being pummeled by a Wall of Laughs.” – Entertainment Weekly
