Debaser Film


How’s this for a double bill — after watching Saturn 3, I immediately followed-up with this. I guess I needed a silly comedy as a chaser, and Airplane does indeed fit that bill. I wasn’t expecting much from this re-watch, but instead was pleasantly surprised by just how much I ended up laughing — I feel like when I revisited a Naked Gun film recently, it didn’t feel as enjoyable. It’s maybe because I watched this film so many times as a kid, so the jokes felt like such a pleasant nostalgic flashback. Surely. (And stop calling me Shirley.)
