Airplane! (1980)

Dr. Strangelove (1964)Our next pairing is pure balm for whatever is causing any stress you're feeling, as they are two comedies that hold nothing back and are just genuinely funny! First up, for Episode 224, it's 1980's classic film spoof "Airplane!" Directed by Jim Abrahams, David Zucker, and Jerry Zucker, the movie is based largely on a 1957 thriller called "Zero Hour," that the three caught on VHS tape by accident! They were so taken with how over-the-top the melodrama was in "Zero Hour," that they decided to turn it into a comedy, and created one of THE comedies of the 20th century! Starring "serious actors" like Peter Graves, Lloyd Bridges, Lesley Nielsen, and Robert Stack, and partnering them up with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Julie Hagerty, Robert Hays, Lorna Patterson, and Stephen Stucker, this movie wove its comedy into the straight-faced performances by its entire cast and created a classic that's just as funny today as it was when it premiered! This film also gave us an absolute treasure-trove of memorable lines to quote from here to eternity! A classic that still makes all three hosts laugh!
