A takeoff (peculiarly appropriate term in this context, although the implication of getting off the ground makes it a misnomer after all) on the Airport series of disaster films. Several flashbacks allow it to take off on other tacks as well, and indeed it seems constitutionally unable to remain on any one course for longer than thirty seconds at a time. Nowhere near as laughable as The Concorde -- Airport '79, much less that other disaster spoof, The Big Bus, it appears to have been put together by raiding the wastebaskets after a gag writers' brainstorming conference. Leslie Nielsen, Robert Stack, Lloyd Bridges, and Peter Graves are very good at what they do, but the bigger jobs of writing and directing fell to the Kentucky Fried Theater team of Jim Abrahams, David Zucker, and Jerry Zucker, who are not. With Robert Hays, Julie Hagerty, and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. (1980) — Duncan Shepherd
