The persons and events in this film are fictitious - fortunately! A mast erpiece of off-the-wall comedy, Airplane! features Robert Ha ys as an ex -fighter pilot forced to take over the controls of an airliner when the flight crew succumbs to food poisoning; Julie Hag erty as his girlfriend /stewardess/co-pilot; and a cast of all-stars including Robert Stack, Ll oyd Bridges, Peter Graves, Leslie Niel sen, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar... and m ore. Their hilarious high jinks spoof airplane disaster flicks, religiou s zealots, television comme rcials, romantic love... the list whirls by in rapid succession. And the story races from one moment of zany fun to the next.]]>

Remember the two suitcases attacking one another while being "walked" by their owners? Gone
Remember the PLO airways herding their blindfolded passengers in to the terminal? Gone
How about the "has sparky ever humped your leg" line by the Cpt to the boy passenger? Also gone
The list goes on...
I did notice in the menu that there is some deleted scenes so maybe they're there but that still doesn't explain why they were taken out in the first place.
This box-set that was released May of '08 could have been alot cooler. This is the first time (at least for Region 1) BOTH Airplane! movies have been released as one product in ONE case as far as I know. However, instead of 2-for-1 sets like Paramount's "Wayne's World" & "Chris Farley" groupings, that were two movies put on one DVD-9 (dual layer-single sided/one movie per layer), all they did with this one was put the original 2000 discs in one dual spindle keepcase with a new cover/slipcase. And it does NOT contain the extras-filled "Don't Call Me Shirley!" edition of the first movie either, just the original bare-bones first release. Extras here are just the original commentary track & trailer for the first film, "Sequel" is nothing but movie. I was hoping for a better presentation, but I bought it mainly for owning Part Two (as I already own the "Shirley" edition). As for picture/audio, it's what you'd expect from an eight year old digital transfer, not as good as "Shirley"'s. So I guess if you don't have any version of Airplane!, this set under $10 is nice & quick, but look for the "Shirley" edition first for an outstanding copy of the original classic.
This movie has some funny moments, but Ermahgerd! This movie was made in a time when racist, sexist, homophobic, etc. jokes were the apex of humor. My wife and I stared at each other in disbelief at least a dozen times as one form of intolerant joke after another was portrayed. If you like jokes that involve beating women, stereotyping Jews, African-Americans, and Latinos/as, making fun of veterans' struggle with PTSD, and jokes about pedophiles, then this movie is for you! I am absolutely not kidding-these aren't whiny Liberal-I'm-offended-because-I-have-thin-skin jokes. If you really want to enjoy this movie, grab some pop-corn and hood!
