Airplane 2: The Sequel ★★ 1982 (PG)

Not a Zucker, Abrahams and Zucker effort, and sorely missing their slapstick and script finesse. The first passenger space shuttle has taken off for the moon and there's a mad bomber on board. Given the number of stars mugging, it's more of a loveboat in space than a fitting sequel to “Airplane.” Nonetheless, some funny laughs and gags. 84m/C VHS, DVD .
