Re: Terrible subversions/ Parodies.
To truly get the satire in Airplane you'd have had to have watched the movie Airport from '77. Which was really the beginning of blockbuster disaster movies. With all the stereotypical characters we've come to expect from such movies, and a particularly plodding and dully serious story. At that time it had an all-star cast and was nominated for an Academy Award.
It was to me, after watching it, quite lampoon-worthy.
