‘Airplane!’ review

“Airplane!” — With this classic, the “absurd dialogue delivered with a straight face” brand of comedy from David and Jerry Zucker and Jim Abrahams was unleashed on the masses, and Leslie Nielsen became the master of parodies.

Best line: “The passengers had a choice between steak and fish.” “Yes, I remember. I had the lasagna.”
