Back when I was a young, carefree lass who wasn't following the List, I attempted to watch this with my sister. We got about twenty minutes into before we had to turn it off. This is saying a lot, since we have sat through some pretty horrible things. When I started the List, I realized I would have to start this one over. It was a somber day.
Ted is an ex fighter pilot who has a deep fear of flying. He boards an airplane his girlfriend is serving as a flight attendant in hopes of winning her back. During the flight, the pilots and many of the passengers get sick from the fish (see? Being a vegetarian is cool!), so it is up to Ted to save the day.
A lot of times there isn't much to say about a comedy you don't like other than "I didn't think it was funny." Some people might find the humor offensive, as a large portion of the jokes were racist, sexist, or vaguely creepy. I think they were self aware, although I don't really consider that a pass to continue doing it and calling it entertainment. I didn't find any of the jokes particularly offensive, just not very smart.
Still, if you did find this movie entertaining, I don't judge you. I have never seen a disaster film (thank goodness) so wasn't entirely in on the joke anyway.
Aeromexico was the only airline to provide Airplane! as in flight entertainment.
Woody Allen loves this movie. We really do not have the same taste. Maybe that's a good thing.
