| I know that it was silly, but for some reason I enjoyed it
Now, I know that this was the same thing and same jokes as the very first Airplane. But for some reason, I think because I was just in such a good mood that day, I really did enjoy this funny sequel. True, despite it being set in the future, they used the same characters, and you could totally tell that it was still set in the 80's, it was still a fun movie to watch. The only thing I really missed was Leslie Neilson.

I know this also has a lower rating than the original, but I think everyone just needs to have fun with it. Yes, it was an unnecessary sequel, but it still had a few good laughs you have to admit. They brought back all the jokes we loved, and yes, it's unoriginal, but at least it's what makes the movie work. So, I know as silly as it may sound, I think you'll get a kick out of Airplane II: The Sequel. Like I said, just have fun with it!

Did You Know?


William Shatner's character orders a profile on everyone who has seen The Sound of Music (1965) more than four times. That film was directed by Robert Wise, who also directed Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979).


Buck Murdock: Oh, cut the bleeding heart crap, will ya? We've all got our switches, lights, and knobs to deal with, Striker. I mean, down here there are literally hundreds and thousands of blinking, beeping, and flashing lights, blinking and beeping and flashing ...


As Striker is attaching the bomb to the control panel, a crewmember is reflected in the controls.

Alternate Versions

In the TV version of 'Airplane II' there were 2 gags involving the Texan played by Hugh Gillin that were not in the theatrical release. One involved him giving a large sum of money to a man representing a heart foundation who then keels over dead when he sees how much money the Texan had given him. The other involves the Texan asking for something to read while on the shuttle flight and Mary the stewardess gives him a huge pile of books. There's also an extra scene in line when Sonny Bono buys the $1 million dollar auto insurance policy. In the theatrical version the first time we see Sonny Bono is when he's buying the bomb in the airport all-purpose shop. None of these scenes are on the DVD as extras.
