It’s the 40th anniversary of the epic film Airplane!
Don’t miss this hilarious spoof on aviation disaster movies starring some of the biggest names in Hollywood. Unabashedly juvenile and zany, Airplane! nevertheless is an uproarious spoof comedy full of quotable lines and slapstick gags that endure to this day—see how many of the classic lines you know or have heard (and didn’t know that they came from the film).

Airplane! scored an amazing 97% on the Tomatometer, and 89% on the Audience Score on Rotten Tomatoes.

Contests and giveaways!
