Will post Amazon preorder when available
This is weird, but for the million or so times I have seen, and loved, AIRPORT, I don't think I ever saw this one.
It isn't nearly as good and much of it falls pretty flat, but there are a couple of moments. It's not written by the same team, so that's the major problem.
It does have its moments. I will probably buy it...and the original Airplane
is under $9 on Amazon at this moment.
....but Warner really missed an opportunity here. When they touted this
relationship with Paramount they did so by stating that they would match
up films and release double-feature sets.
This should have been an AIRPLANE/AIRPLANE II double feature release.
Ill buy it. Not the same as what for me is the funniest movie ever, Aiplane but this one still makes me laug plenty.
Completely agree. The moments it has, are really great!
I will buy, but I wish this had been in a two film package.
Well, that is what the "Custom Cover" thread is for and those shops that sell spare dual disc cases.
THE LOOOOVE BOAT......
It's not as clever as the first one, but still plenty funny.Here's a teaserMcKroskey: Tell me everything that's happened up until now"Well, first the earth cooled and the the dinosaurs came, but they got too big and fat, so the all died and turned into oil. And then the Arabs came and started buying Mercedes Benzes. And then Prince Charles started wearing all of Lady Di's clothing. I could believe it, he took her best summer dress and put it on and went to town."
I would agree that it is not up to Airplane standards but it is still a pretty good film. They wisely decided to focus on sci-fi films for this one and it still has funny moments to it.
I still get a big chuckle out of watching Bill Shatner look into his periscope and see the USS Enterprise...he did this the same year he made "Star Trek 2-The Wrath Of Khan"!!!
I have this on SD-DVD, and the film is not nearly good enough for a double dip. The original is a classic. This sequel... not so much.
I would be almost certain it will end up as a double feature eventually
Only when Paramount gets it back--
Not sure if Warner has Airplane 1, but it's definitely one of the "core" catalog titles Paramount symbolically holds on to when they want to promote "Comedy!" It may be 80's, but I don't think Paramount would've sent Top Gun over to Warner, either.
"Oh, cut the bleeding-heart crap, will yaa? We've all got our switches, knobs and lights to deal with--I mean, down here, we've got literally hundreds and thousands of blinking and beeping and flashing lights, and they're blinking and beeping, and flashing, they're flashing, and beeping...I CAN'T TAKE IT!!"
Considering this came out the same year as Grease 2, I'm amazed at Ken Finkleman's chameleonic ability to sequelize any previous movie in its own style.
I asked WB on Facebook if they'd look into including the deleted TV scenes as an extra and they said "Ask Paramount."
This movie... not as good as the first but definitely has its moments, including a great Shatner line (among many):
"Irony can be pretty ironic sometimes."
Ken Finkleman didn't direct GREASE 2, that was the previous movie's choreographer, Patricia Birch, who gets the credit (or the blame) for that one.
