With the Jerry Zucker-Jim Abrahams-David Zucker team absent, this sequel to the cash-cow 1980 spoof Airplane once again finds garrulous man-with-a-past Ted Striker (Robert Hays) compelled to take over the controls of crippled aircraft, all the while trying to patch up his relationship with stewardess Elaine (Julie Hagerty). This time, the first passenger space shuttle is launched into orbit -- and takes off for the moon - but the on-board computer malfunctions and sends the craft hurtling toward the sun, threatening the lives of everyone on board. Lloyd Bridges and Peter Graves return from the first Airplane, while William Shatner, Chad Everett, Sonny Bono, Raymond Burr and Chuck Conners join the cast, as they too lampoon their established images. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi … More

Critic Reviews for Airplane 2 - The Sequel
Less hilarious than its predecessor, but still a hundred or so laughs.
Without the ZAZ team, it loses everything that made the original a classic.
Contains possibly the best William Shatner performance ever committed to celluloid.
Inferior to the original, but enough jokes hit their marks to make it worthwhile.
Does manage to deliver a few jokes of its own, but this sequel is nothing but a pale retread of a true classic. Nice to see all the old faces, though.
it works largely on our fond memories of the first movie
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.More
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.More
