Classic comedy with frequent sex and drug references.

Common Sense Media

Less hilarious than its predecessor, but still a hundred or so laughs.

January 10, 2009

Without the ZAZ team, it loses everything that made the original a classic.

Audience Reviews for Airplane 2 - The Sequel

Just when you thought it safe to go back into the departure lounge.

At this point, we would like to say we HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH the Sequel -Zucker/Abrahams

A hilariuos sequel to Airplane!, but in a way it's sort of a spoof of the first movie too, which is kind of weird. This one has more stars in it though. If you liked the first one, you like this one too, it's very funny.

Having said that however, I don't think this film is as bad as some other reviewers have stated. Sure they re-hash a lot of stuff from the first movie, but hey! It's still funny right? I think this movie has a lot going for it. Some of the jokes fall flat, but some are hilarious. You've just got to take the rough with the smooth.
