    How Times Have Changed
    I caught a bit of "Airplane: The Sequel" (1982) on Comedy Central this morning.

    There was a scene where former singer, actor, and Congressman, the late Sonny Bono, playing a waiting passenger at an airport, went into the gift shop, and purchased "this Time magazine, some Lifesavers, and that second time bomb on the left".

    No one would dare do that scene today.

    I love to watch the old Airplane and Police Squad movies. There's so many jokes in them that young people today don't get because they relate to the time when the movies were made.

    That's probably why I have trouble appreciating them. Oh, and M*A*S*H*. I didn't get that movie at all.

    It does. The original was a classic.

    The old Airplane movies were funny when they came out but now they seem kind of corney.

    Johnny, what can you make out of this?
    It could be a hat or a brooch or a pterodactyl...

    I love those movies, made in the days when you could actually meet your loved one at the gate. *sigh*

    The movie was one of the most accurate book adaptations ever. Not nearly as funny as the tv show.

    Of course, that's the difference between a doctor writing about his experiences in the Korean War, albeit with literary license, and professional comedy writers writing a weekly series.


    We hope you enjoy the rest of your flight...By the way, is there anyone on board who can fly a plane.

    I heard that they kind of threw the script out the window when they were making MASH, even to the point of film actors who didn't know that they were being filmed. I could be mistaken though.

    Even more amazing is that both Airplane movies were rated PG. Granted, PG-13 didn't exist yet, but still. Times are certainly different.

    The Airplane movies crack me up every time I watch ...not many that do.

    Rumack: You'd better tell the Captain we've got to land as soon as we can. This woman has to be gotten to a hospital.
    Elaine: A hospital? What is it?
    Rumack: It's a big building with patients, but that's not important right now.

    lol. And even Aladin with the Robin Williams genie out of the bottle rant... one of the best bits in a cartoon ever. Tons of kids won't understand most of it....

    (Needs to get that on DVD, Vinny will think I'm nuts, but maybe Princess Jasmine will catch his attention...)

    "Do you trust me?" - one of the best movie lines ever... I still see Aladin reaching for Jasmine to take his hand.

    Why shouldn't Airplane be PG? There is no nudity, sexual content or cursing. The R-rated stuff from those creators was Kentucky Fried Movie which is very funny and has alot of nudity Got to love a movie whose opening line is:
    "The you are eating has been pissed in! Film at 11." and don't get me started with the scene of the intimacy record and Big Jim Slade.

    What movie were you watching? I linked right to the IMDB report about Airplane 2. There's topless women and language, and enough innuendo to fill... well, an airplane. There's no way that would be PG by today's standards, that was my point.
