I just want to tell you both good luck. We're all counting on you.

As funny as Airplane! is what really impresses me is that a movie with tits, numerous drug references (including a woman doing lines off a mirror) and an endless stream of sex jokes(two involving children) managed to get a PG rating. I'd like to see a filmmaker try that now.

I raise you Peter Grant's f-word and c-word tirade, Robert Plant picking up two joints (not to mention his children naked in the beginning), and Jimmy Page's occult-laden intro and fantasy sequences in the PG-rated The Song Remains the Same.

/plus there was not a PG-13 rating back then

PG-13 didn't exist back then, so "brief nudity" was actually okay in a PG film.

I call with Cannonball Run's constant drinking and driving recklessly, including Jackie Chan and Terry Bradshaw loading CASES of beer into their car for a cross country run. Try making that movie today.

Tax Boy: Johnny, what can you make out of this?


I can make a hat or a brooch or a teradactyl

The reason why Airplane is so funny--and so many of the really good Simpsons are so funny--isn't so much because of content but pacing. Timing is everything. And Airplane was very well timed.

Life of Brian is lower than Shaun of the Dead. Yeah, I don't have to say anything more than that.


well, Shaun is a funnier film.

/look, I love the Pythons, but let's not pretend that they didn't blow their load with "Holy Grail". The other stuff is passable at best, brilliant in moments, but nothing they have done compares to Grail.

karmaceutical: Used Cars


An unjustly forgotten movie from the golden age of comedy.

"What we need is a politician who's not afraid to go out there and tell the people exactly what they want to hear."

/$15,000 dollars! Too farking much!

The line I always found jaw-dropping--even then--was the little girl saying she takes her coffee "black. Like my men."
