My go-to movie for laughs. Airplane! is slapstick, absurdity, puns, and gags.

Parodying the disaster film genre so popular in the 1950s thru the 1970s, I’d recommend you watch 1957’s Zero Hour! to understand where this was spawned.

The actors, many of whom were well-known for serious parts before being corrupted to this madness, such as Lloyd Bridges, Peter Graves, Robert Stack, and Leslie Nielsen really make this film.

Airplane! is palpably predictable, idyllically immature, feverishly foolish, cheese on top of corn topped with cheese, but that’s what makes it perfect. It’s so wrong it’s right.


I’m proud (maybe that’s too strong a word) to say at one point I could literally recite this movie word for word.

Surely I can’t be serious? Yes, I am serious and stop calling me Shirley. airplane5

Airplane II: The Sequel had a sci-fi twist and William Shatner so I was already happy. Most of the cast came back, but not the writers & directors. So, maybe it didn’t have the same shine as the first, but I think it still had some hilarious moments.

Watch movie, laugh, repeat.

What About Bob?

whatab1I think What About Bob? is one of the funniest movies ever made.

Never ceases to crack me up.

“I feel good. I feel great. I feel wonderful.”~Bill Wiley

Bill Murray is delightful as the multi-phobic, charming psychiatric patient, Bob Wiley, and Richard Dreyfuss is fantastic as Dr. Leo Marvin whose inflated ego makes him a bad doctor, father, and husband.

Bob follows Dr. Marvin on vacation and it becomes the ultimate anti-buddy film.

I just need to think the words, Baby Steps or Death Therapy or even see a goldfish and I get an internal chuckle.

The greatest lessons of this movie? Everyone has something to offer and lighten up, have some fun.

I will warn you, prepare yourself for sore ribs from laughing.
