“Thank you, Topper. I can kill again! You’ve given me a reason to live.”

“My parents are dead, Topper. My dog ate them”

There are a lot of piss-takes out there and some of them even have a joke in them but, guys, there is no way to put this nicely….. the old ones are the best. The modern stuff sucks like a gumsy vampire.

Airplane, Hot Shots – these are the funny movies that make you laugh and this sequel is just as good as the first. It’s the delivery. Or the lines. Or the stupidity. Or the way they play it for real but with the most ridiculous scenes. Oh, I don’t know! It just works!

Seriously – it’s funny. Every single joke or situation or look is entirely predictable but unlike most American humour, there isn’t a moment that puts you off watching. Bring back the writers and directors and actors that made these to teach lessons on the importance of not just cashing in on audiences but actually entertaining.
Keep DVD?

Yes. Why do you ask?

Watch if on TV?
Yes. Can’t… get… away… must…. watch!

Snog, Marry, Avoid?
Marry. But I have to warn you,  my other wife is Airplane.
