Great comedy takes off! - Airplane 2: The Sequel review by AW

Spoiler Alert

People have reviewed this film on IMDB saying it wasn't as good as the original. Well, some may not be, but to me this wasn't one of them. I only vaguely remember seeing the 1980 original some years ago and it held up well; had loads of sight and comedy gags and was well received. This one has a slightly more skewed theme of a shuttle trip to the moon (in '82 ?? So you travel dressed in a suit, with your dog and suitcases??) but honestly I laughed myself silly as the gags just kept coming, in practically ever scene.

Frankly it merits a 2nd or 3rd viewing just to see what you might have missed!

Several clips refer back to the original and are blended in well. Julie Hagerty's breathless little girl voice was a tad annoying but Lloyd Bridges, Peter Graves reprise their roles and provide a lot of sight comedy, with Wm Shatner and Chuck Connors lending lots of star power (instead of Leslie Nielsen and Robert Stack).

A lovely respite from the trying times in 2020.
