Airplane

Movie • 1980 • Comedy  

Report
Alcoholic pilot, Ted Striker has developed a fear of flying due to wartime trauma, but nevertheless boards a passenger jet in an attempt to woo back his stewardess girlfriend. Food poisoning decimates the passengers and crew, leaving it up to Striker to land the plane with the help of a glue-sniffing air traffic controller and Striker's vengeful former Air Force captain, who must both talk him down.

Perhaps not quite child abuse, but a pedophilic airplane captain does try to proposition a young boy. Nothing actually happens between the two of them, as a flight attendant ushers the boy out of the cockpit.

It’s played as a joke, as a natural escalation from “I chose the wrong day to quit drinking” to later on when the situation gets more stressful and he says “I chose the wrong day to quit sniffing glue”

He has a “drinking problem” - whenever he tries to drink something he dumps it over his head. It’s pretty funny imo

A woman who starts to panic is at first shaken and slapped to snap out of it, but then many passengers on the plane form a line to be the next one to try to stop her panicking, and some of them have weapons like a wrench and a gun that they intend to use. It continues off screen

The autopilot of the plane is an inflatable doll. The valve is in his waist, making it look really naughty when 'he''s blown up.
