Airplane! (1980)

This movie is hilarious. It's filled with so many jokes, I'm sure I wasn't able to catch them all. It has so many jokes, I don't know how many times I'd have to watch the movie before catching them all. If I made a list of my top ten favorite comedies, this movie would undoubtedly have to be on it. This movie was recommended to me by my friend Mark. If you liked The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad! (1988), then you should also enjoy Airplane! They share director David Zucker and actor Leslie Nielsen.
