I had my doubts during the first quarter of the film. The same jokes that seemed so funny in the original just weren’t connecting very strongly this second time around. In retrospect, I think this had a lot to do with the characters delivering those one-liners. Apart from Striker (Robert Hays) and Elaine (Julie Hagerty), these were mostly new characters. (I also have to admit that I found this second dose of Elaine quite annoying.) More familiar faces began to come in over time, though, and the tide really turned with the return of McCroskey (Lloyd Bridges). Everything just fell into place after that, and the appearance of William Shatner toward the end raised the bar of comedy up another notch.
As for the story, it takes place a little while after the events of the first film. It seems that Striker and Elaine did not find mutual happiness after all.Read more ›
Of course, AIRPLANE 2 - THE SEQUEL couldn't live up to the lofty expectations set by its predecessor, but that's okay, as there are some big-league laughs here. Robert Hays returns as the stone-faced, hilariously serious Ted Striker as he tries to prevent disaster on the First Passenger Space Shuttle To The Moon. Along for the ride, literally, are Julie Hagerty as Elaine, the flight attendant and Striker's ongoing love interest from the first film. Also making a return is (believe it or not) Lloyd Bridges as old Steven McCrosky (who must've picked a bad time to start guiding space shuttles), and Peter Graves as Capt. Clarence Oveur (thankfully, little Johnny didn't board this flight). Too bad Dr.Read more ›
I then realized that some very funny stuff had been left out of the movie. The origional or even TV version had several more scenes that were simply deleted in the DVD version. I'm guessing maybe 10 to 15 minutes are missing. I can't even begin to comprehend why these scenes were deleted. We're obviously not worried about time constraints on a DVD.
I am very disappointed with this version simply because of the deleted material. I really enjoy this movie, but would have enjoyed it a lot more had the whole movie been included. Perhaps they should sell it with a warning stating that you're not receiving what you expect.

I think the first Airplane movie is good, but the second one shows more nudity than the first one. Even the extended version of the sequel should be re-release back into theaters. Read morePublished on Oct. 21 2010 by Kevin Barton
