Classic comedy with frequent sex and drug references.
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
The only significant difference between the storyline of this film and the original is that this one takes place upon a spaceship headed toward the moon.
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.
The original "Airplane!" is one of my favorite movies of all time and one of the funniest movies I've ever seen. "Airplane 2 - The Sequel" is also funny, but it's not as funny as the original blockbuster movie. In this one, a shuttle is on its way to the moon, but it gets majorly off course and is headed almost straight for the sun instead. A lot of the original cast members are back in this sequel such as Julie Haggerty and Robert Hays. However, some such as Leslie Nielsen are not back, but there are some new and funny cast members such as William Shatner as Murdock.
"Airplane 2 - The Sequel" has the same kind of hilarious antics that the original movie had such as when Julie Haggerty tells everybody that they might not make it because they're going through an asteroid belt. At that statement none of the passengers hardly have any reaction, but when she tells everybody that they're out of coffee, everybody goes ballistic. Another good parody is when William Shatner is looking through space with the aid of a periscope and he sees the Enterprise that he commanded in the original series of Star Trek flying in space.
If you liked "Airplane!," I recommend getting "Airplane 2 - The Sequel." It's not as classic or as good as "Airplane!," but it's still funny and it's a fairly decent sequel. NOTE: That was my Amazon review from the year 2000.
