25 jokes which make Airplane! one of the funniest movies of all time

If you don’t think this movie belongs amongst the all-time greats, then surely you can’t be serious…

There’s a danger with comedy movies that they can feel dated quite quickly, but despite being 40 years old, Airplane! has aged very well and it’s no surprise that it has proved extremely popular with generations born years after its release.


The deadpan and ridiculously silly style of comedy in Airplane! has never been bettered and hasn’t been seen – at least to a level of similar quality – since the Naked Gun trilogy and no matter how many times you watch it, such was the sheer volume of jokes that you’re bound to find a new one on every viewing.

If you somehow haven’t yet watched it, do yourself a favour and do so as soon as possible.

For those of you who have, meanwhile, sit back and enjoy our random selection of some of our favourites out of the many, many jokes in what is, undeniably, an all-time classic.
