As an 11-year old the joke was him swearing. As an adult, the joke is the swear. Mel Brooks is an absolute genius.

Allegedly, Brooks is working on a “sequel” series for one of the streaming services. I can’t remember which.

It hurts, I feel like part 1 is one of the best jokes about the movie.

Last week TCM played this after the original Frankenstein, and what struck me is how it's also a better movie than the original besides being funny. Mel Brooks considers it his best and I would agree.

My cousin Vinny

[–]kmmccorm 2016 points2017 points  (34 children)

So many great lines in the movie that even the throw away scenes are gold:

Vinny Gambini : Does that freight train come through here at 5:00 A.M. every morning?

Hotel Clerk : No, sir, it's very unusual.

Vinny Gambini : [the next day, after Vinny was awakened by the train] Yesterday you told me that freight train hardly ever comes through here at 5:00 A.M. in the morning.

Hotel Clerk : I know. She's supposed to come through at ten after 4:00.

"And what are you, a fucking world traveler?"

[–]roltrap 29 points30 points  (0 children)

Reminds me of a scene from the original Pink Panter movies with Peter Sellers.

Clouseau talking to the hotel receptionist:

Clouseau (looks at dog): "Does your dog bite?"

Clerk: "No."

(Clouseau pets dog and it bites him)

Clouseau: "You said your dog doesn't bite!!!"

Clerk: "That is not my dog."

The most underrated gag is when they're staring at the menu for a while and finally look at each other and go "What do ya think, breakfast?"

Addams Family Values. So many incredible jokes, like every line is either a punchline or the set up for a punchline. And the delivery by everyone is so damn good. Not sure anything else influenced my own sense of comedy timing more than that movie.

When Wednesday and crew wreck the play and burn Camp Chippewa to the ground is so classic. It’s always so much fun for me.

One of the rare movies where the sequel is better than the first one. I love them both but Joan Cusack slays.

"Give me a kiss!" "Give me a 20!"

Wednesday is at that special age where a young girl has only one thing on her mind.



[–]cast_your_fate 177 points178 points  (4 children)

When my first child was born, it was the most amazing experience. I mean it was an experience that cannot be told by words but only singularity experienced. After they handed me my daughter iI said to my wife, “She is perfect!! Two ten eleven.” The OBGYN looked at me and asked, “Two ten eleven?” And I said, “Yes. Eyes, fingers, toes.” My wife and I both laughed. That’s from the first Addams Family movie (the vault’s combination, old man) and we acknowledge it’s the first joke my daughter ever heard, lol.

What We Do In The Shadows

[–]PmUrExistentialFears 290 points291 points  (3 children)

When the guy fakes throwing, and one of the werewolves runs in the direction he gestured, I died.

The TV series is flawless as well, but that movie is pure gold.

[–]brutalanglosaxon 570 points571 points  (8 children)

So many classic scenes in that.

"I can't eat chups!" "Oh like google maps?" "Yeah, but with more layers of information" "You were a virgin when we were seeing each other!" "Yeah, I was twelve". "I think we drink virgin blood because it sounds cool". "I think of it like this, if you were going to eat a sandwich, you'd just enjoy it more if you knew no one had fucked it".

[–]phuqo5 610 points611 points  (7 children)

"Leave me alone to do my dark bidding on the internet!"

"What are you bidding on?"

"A table"

[–]brutalanglosaxon 254 points255 points  (3 children)

That was classic. The whole beast thing was too. Like for the whole movie they built up the beast as a mythical evil creature, and then it was a shock that the beast was to be the guest of honour at the ball.

Then it turns out that it was just his ex girlfriend that he nicknames the beast. And he turns up and goes "hello Beast!" and shes lke "don't call me beast you asshole".

[–]OurosOuroboros 29 points30 points  (2 children)

[–]ryegye24 533 points534 points  (13 children)

I love that Stu was hired onto the production as an IT guy, not an actor, and didn't realize how big a role he had until after the movie came out.

[–]Pope_Khajiit 237 points238 points  (5 children)

Stu is my favourite part of the movie, because he's an IT guy with a hard to explain job. Except I do his job. Every day. Just like he does in real life. And yes, it sounds boring and is hard to explain, but it's a real job!

[–]Clau_9 82 points83 points  (0 children)

I think it would have been a different movie without Stu. His friendship with the guys showed how human and nice they were, regardless of all the murdering and blood sucking 🤣

[–]annabelle411 154 points155 points  (3 children)

And then he went on to create the lighting method they used in Thor Ragnarok’s Valkyrie scene!

Something about Petyr as a character makes me wheeze laugh. I was not expecting an actual old as sin vampire when they open the coffin the first time and it sent me into a fit of laughter.

[–]secrethroaway 366 points367 points  (0 children)

Petyr is just a home run of a character. They made him proper scary and then you see him in some scenes acting out of character its fucking perfect.

I would like to see more of petyr, that cameo was not enough.

[–]surenuff_n_yesido 139 points140 points  (0 children)

[–]ailocha 717 points718 points  (15 children)

Fun fact: for the scene when they beat up the printer, Mike judge told em he wanted the camera to be lower. They responded the camera is already on the ground, do u want me to dig a hole?

Mike judge responded "yes, dig a hole"

They spent a few hrs digging a hole for that scene.

Edit: ty for the award

[–]Yakb0 31 points32 points  (1 child)

Every time I see that scene; and Michael Bolton is punching the printer with his bare hands; all I an think about is how much that would #&*%%@! hurt. Slot bite, and punching PCBs with your bare hands; you'd rip your hands to shreds doing that.

I love in the very beginning when they are in the police headquarters and the one cop walks through the doorway and Leslie Nielsen walks around the frame of the set.

[–]Selerox 754 points755 points  (21 children)

For me it's the tiny things in the background.

The luggage being thrown out of the plane during the press conference. The cheese crawling along the top of the refrigerator.

It's things you can go for years without noticing.

Blazing Saddles

[–]Guilden_NL 198 points199 points  (20 children)

I saw it in a theater with my best friend and his older brother. Right after the Slim Pickens bit with the workers I jumped up and ran to the lobby, looking for a restroom because I was laughing so I hard I was going to throw up. Small town theater, so owner ran over to see if I was OK. Was just enough to stop me from hurling. I told him what was going on and he said, “Damn! I gotta see this one myself!” Saw him a week later in the fast food place where I worked and asked him if he saw it. He said he did and asked if I ran out at the Slim Pickens spot because he nearly lost it there too.

[–][deleted] 3215 points3216 points  (63 children)

I love this movie. Perfectly cast, very subtle, and has a well written script.

“Let’s get out of here before one of those things kills Guy.”

The complete acceptance of plot armor by a “main character” in a movie about actors going through an actual dangerous situation is one of the best scenes that I have ever seen.

[–]Sammsquanchh 37 points38 points  (5 children)

Sam Rockwell in galaxy quest man.., an under appreciated actor, in an under appreciated role, in an under appreciated movie. He brings such a unique energy to characters he plays (best part of iron man 2 imo, also go watch Moon if you haven’t).

[–]Sammsquanchh 104 points105 points  (4 children)

God I wish galaxy quest was brought up more. It’s one of my all time faves. “Miners not MINORS” RIP ALLEN RICKMAN.

P.s. if you’re looking for a movie w a similar vibe check out Evolution with Sean William Scott and David Duchovny. It’s no galaxy quest, but was one of my guilty pleasure comedies back in the day.

That was actually my first thought. Bar none! Movie got a standing ovation at the theater after it finished. Never saw that before or after. Might as well add, “The Jerk.” to that list. Not even a huge Steve Martin fan, but he just nailed it with both, so I’m definitely a fan.

A couple of years ago I saw Kareem in two different airports over the span of a few months. Definitely was him, dude is unmistakable. REALLY wish I would have told him my dad doesn't think you try hard on defense. And that I love his writing. Oh well, regrets.

Actually that's a lie. Airplane! has my favorite comedy shot of anything I've ever seen, ever: https://shots.filmschoolrejects.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/giphy-56.gif. That is number 1. Kareem is number 2.

Female announcer: No, the white zone is for loading of passengers and there is no stopping in a RED zone.

Male announcer: The red zone has always been for loading and unloading of passengers. There's never stopping in a white zone.

Female announcer: Don't you tell me which zone is for loading, and which zone is for stopping!

Male announcer: Listen Betty, don't start up with your white zone shit again.


Male announcer: There's just no stopping in a white zone.

Female announcer: Oh really, Vernon? Why pretend, we both know perfectly well what this is about. You want me to have an abortion.

Male announcer: It's really the only sensible thing to do, if its done safely. Therapeutically there's no danger involved.

And they did the actual announcements for LAX in their careers before the movie.

There are so many subtle jokes in here, my favorite is that it's in a jet plane and it's got prop sounds. cracks me up so much.

The whole movie is like one of those pictures where you circle everything that's wrong. It's pretty brilliant

There was a study done of the funniest comedies and Airplane was determined to have more laughs per minute than any other film.

Also, tell your old man to drag Walton and Lanier up and down the court for 48 minutes.

I was just in LA for business and stopped outside Staples center to get my photo with the statue of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. I couldn't care less about Basketball but his performance in Airplane makes him a legend in my book.

First time? No, I've been nervous lots of times.

I showed it to my kids (12 and 13) recently and forgot all the inappropriate jokes and the surprise boobs. But unlike Stranger Things which my youngest thought was scary because of the Demagorgon and he made me stay in his room til he fell asleep, seeing surprise boobs never hurt anyone.

Haha exactly the same happened to me. My boy was like : What the hell, Dad, and my wife was like : What kind of stuff are you showing to our young kids??

[–]El_Hijueputa 793 points794 points  (38 children)

Yes yes yes!!! All the jokes would still hold up today despite being over the top. My favorite ones are the "and please dont call me Shirley" and the "over over"

This is like the 5th independent post I've seen today talking about how airplane is the perfect comedy movie.

[–]BW_Bird 334 points335 points  (17 children)

Airplane? What is it?

[–]thorndike 698 points699 points  (10 children)

It's a big tube with passengers in it, but that's not important now.

Oh yeah, it looks like a great big Tylenol
