“Airplane!” ranks sixth on Bravo’s 100 Funniest Movies and has more laughs per minute than any other film, but none of that matters. The real question is: Did Gene Lyons like it?
In this episode commissioned by listener Kiki, the Shat Crew covers a long-overdue ’80s comedy classic that mixes heavy parody, genius non-verbal jokes and delightfully offensive material.
Dick Ebert explains that every time he watches “Airplane!” he discovers a new punchline. And Gene applauds performances from Peter Graves, Robert Stack and Julie Hagerty. The guys also cover the infamous Otto scene, the line that keeps giving and whether Johnny was gay.
If you enjoy episodes where Big D and Gene disagree, give this one a listen.
