More of the Same, but in the Future
It is the future. People are getting ready for there first transport to the Moon to live in Moon colonies, and Ted Striker knows something bad is going to happen. The Roc 4000 computer goes nuts and kills the crew of the spaceship and sets the ship towards the sun. If Striker can't take back the ship and change it's course they will all fry. Sequel to Airplane! is mainly a parody on 2001, with all the original Airplane! jokes thrown back in. Most of the cast has returned including Lloyd Bridges, Peter Graves, and even the jive talking dude. William Shatner and Sunny Bono are very good as a few new characters. Is it funny? Yes, but not as funny as the first. People who enjoyed the first one should enjoy this one. Fairly average comedy. **out of **** Note: After the end credits they say Airplane 3 coming soon. It never came.

Trivia

At the Alpha Beta base, a technician tells Buck Murdock that the piece of equipment he is working on has red lights that go back and forth, but no other apparent purpose. This piece of equipment has been seen in many science fiction films and television series (including Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982), The Last Starfighter (1984) and an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987)), but its function is never explained.


Quotes

Clarence Oveur: Well, my goodness, Scraps is a boy dog, isn't he?
Jimmy: Yeah.
Clarence Oveur: Jimmy, do you like it when Scraps holds onto your leg and rubs up and down?


Goofs

During its runaway course, the passenger shuttle travels through an asteroid belt just before heading straight for the sun, implying that there is a major asteroid field between Earth and the Sun. There are no asteroid fields of any kind between Earth and the Sun. The main asteroid belt is located between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter. There are also several other minor asteroid fields, but all of them are located near the edge of our solar system and/or beyond the orbit of Neptune.


Crazy Credits

After the ending credits roll off the screen, a commercial comes up that says "Coming from Paramount Pictures: Airplane III". Then William Shatner, as Buck Murdock, comes on and says "That's exactly what they'll be expecting us to do!"


Alternate Versions

The TBS TV version adds a scene with McCroskey in the Ronald Reagan Home For The Mentally Ill. In a variation of the first film's Ethel Merman joke, a nurse explains that McCroskey thinks he's Lloyd Bridges. We then see him sitting in bed with a scuba mask on (referring to his show "Sea Hunt"). When told that they need him to bring the shuttle down, McCroskey sits up and says: "...looks like I picked the wrong week to go senile!"
