The Best Stupid Comedies of All Time

Airplane (1980, PG) 1 of 12

Starring: Robert Hays, Julie Hagerty, Leslie Nielsen, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

This ridiculously funny spoof of the Airport disaster movies is packed with low humor, constant jokes, gags, and deadpan acting. When an airplane crew takes ill, an alcoholic ex-pilot with a fear of flying is forced to land the plane, helped by a glue-sniffing air traffic controller, and his vindictive former captain.

Elaine Dickinson: "There's no reason to become alarmed, and we hope you'll enjoy the rest of your flight. By the way, is there anyone on board who knows how to fly a plane?"
