Movie Info

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

Audience Reviews for Airplane 2 - The Sequel

  • Dec 05, 2015
    Sadly not as good as the superb original. Many of the jokes are recycled but it's still funny at times. Sometimes I wonder why they never made a third movie.

    With the original creative team gone, Airplane II: The Sequel is a cheap joke that goes nowhere. Essentially the same movie redone with a sci-fi twist, the story follows a space flight that goes out of control while on its way to a lunar colony. The comedy re-does all of the same sight gags and jokes of the first film, only this time they're forced and contrived. Still, the parodies of Star Wars, Star Trek, 2001: A Space Odyssey, E.T. and other major science-fiction films of the '70s and '80s provide some good laughs. Airplane II: The Sequel has its moments, but it tries too hard to copy the original and ends up being a mess.

    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.
