Airplane!

Airplane!(1980)

The mother of all parody films showing all the trademarks of the infamous Zucker Abrahams Zucker team's humor and already setting up their later "Naked Gun" fame. Every stereotype of airplane catastrophe movies is so deliciously deconstructed and mocked it's just priceless. This may even be the movie with the highest joke rate ever, even if not all of them work you just can't stop laughing at how ruthless, random, politically incorrect and silly all this is. A joy ride even after all these years. Hilarious times ten.
