Top 10 Comedies

Airplane!, one of the most gloriously turbulent satires ever

Airplane! (1980)

We've often thought that films like "The Towering Inferno" or "The Poseidon Adventure" remake had a real chance of being great — if only they'd been comedies. Fortunately, the makers of "Airplane!" had this same idea — and, like most of their gags, took it one step further. Nabbing the basic plot and portions of the dialogue from a 1957 disaster film called "Zero Hour!," they created what's surely one of the most gloriously turbulent satires ever. Just don't call it … you know.
