    Someone created a side by side comparison between the movie Airplane (1980) and the primary inspiration, Zero Hour (1957), somehow this makes it even funnier. :rflmao:

    Saw Airplane! in the theater and absolutely loved it, still reference it at least once a week. Bought a copy of Zero Hour to go along with it and made me love Airplane! even more.

    I also enjoy Airplane and will have to watch this comparison when I get home from work.

    Zucker Bros. bought the rights to Zero Hour, the reason for so many similarities. A truly funny movie. "I guess I picked the wrong week to stop sniffing glue."

    I remember watching Zero Hour probably 8-9 years ago, it was hard to do because I kept hearing Airplane lines throughout.

    It's actually pretty ridiculous itself.

    Sounds like Airplane just copied ZERO HOUR....

    Which one is better in your opinion?
