Airplane! (1980)

Director: Jim Abrahams
Cast: Leslie Nielsen, Lloyd Bridges and David Zucker

This hilarious spoof of those melodramatic '70s disaster flicks never relents with its sight gags, bad puns and sly innuendo. The first of the “you-know-it's-dumb-but-you-can't-help-laughing” films, Airplane! demands repeat viewings, since many of its jokes are tucked away in the background.
