Airplane!
1980
 
In this joke-a-second parody of disaster movies, traumatized former combat pilot Ted Striker (Robert Hays) is forced to land a passenger plane when food poisoning strikes the crew and there's no one else on board who can do the job. In some clever casting, leading dramatic actors Peter Graves, Robert Stack and Leslie Nielsen never betray that they're in on the joke. Multiple viewings are required to catch every gag.

Comedy, Spoof
 
Hilarious parody that's so good, it long outlived the transportation-disaster genre it was poking fun at. Every line is quotable, and no opportunity for a gag is wasted. Features Leslie Nielsen at his best. Overall, shallow, but very fun.
