Trans American Flight 209 has a serious problem. The food is coming up, and the plane is going down

A satire of so many disaster movies we all pretend we don't have memorized, Airplane! follows ex-fighter pilot Ted Striker, who is afraid to fly after the War, onto the airplane to try to woo back his flight-attendant girlfriend, Elaine. When food poisoning takes out almost everyone on board - including the pilots - Striker is called upon to fly and land the plane with the help of the plane's autopilot - an inflatable doll - and Dr. Rumack (don't call him Shirley).

Can he save the plane and its passengers? Will he win back Elaine? Will there be enough barf bags? How many jokes can they put into a single movie?
