One star Amazon reviews of classic movies, music and literature. Today we take a look at Airplane:
This is nothing more than slap stick slop. There is no acting. There is no plot and no theme. If you like pointless mindless movie fare, then this is for YOU! Want a movie where you don’t have to think? This is your movie! Like jokes that are silly and nonsensical? Here you go. Enjoy. Purely garbage.
A guy with poor hearing answers “Don’t call me Shirley” when somebody says “Surely” to him. This is the main joke in this movie. If you think this is hysterically funny, go ahead, buy it. You’ll have a lot of fun, the whole movie is full of this stuff. Otherwise, pass on it, it’s dull.
This movie is nothing but stupid slap stick. Don’t waste your money. It’s not even funny.
I kept hearing rave reviews for this movie, so I decided to watch it. Apparently it is one of the funniest movies of all time. After the movie was over and the credits rolled, I just sat there staring at the screen for a few minutes contemplating how anyone could even watch this movie. I laughed about, oh, three times.
And no, it’s not because I don’t like silly, nonsensical humor, because that’s my favorite kind of humor. This was just…not funny. It just wasn’t funny. And I find myself wondering how anyone could recommend this movie. I can’t believe this has an average rating of 4 and a half stars!! My god!!! Even “The Ladies Man” was funnier than this! “Planet of the Apes” was funnier than this! And to the guy who said the “drinking problem” gag was “ingenious” and “no one would have thought of that”…um…I don’t know what to say.
OK, rant over. DON’T rent this movie…
I couldn’t even watch more than 20 minutes of this movie. The humors are so corny, cheap by today’s standard. It’s more stupid than funny. Movies like “office space”, “groundhog day” is far better than this one.
Thos movie was horrid to the point where I could not even sit through it. And I am an immature high school freshman.
