    I sure picked the wrong day to give up Dance-Forums.

    Then I developed a drinking problem.

    ------------------------

    I thought that was Howard Jarvis left behind in that taxi.

    NPR did a radio report on a recent anniversary of that movie. It was loosely based on an old air-disaster movie. They had to pay extra for the only line that they used from the original: "We have to find someone who can not only fly this plane, but who didn't have fish for dinner."

    Peter Graves said that whenever mothers of young boys recognize him in public, they immediately and rapidly herd their sons away from him.

    Wasn't that line from Airport? The basic plot of Airplane was very loosely based The High and The Mighty, but I don't recall food being part of the plot of that movie. Besides, Earnest Gann would never have written a line that bad. :p

    "Have you ever been in a... Turkish prison?"

    Uh, the source of the disaster in Airport wasn't food poisoning, but rather a suicidal bomber played by Van Heflin, which had to wait for Sonny Bono to parody it in Airplane II. Loved the "Rocky XVI" movie poster in the background when he bought the bomb in the airport gift shop.

    Besides, Gann didn't write that line. Arthur Hailey did.

    I remembered the food poisoning plotline from a Doug McClure TV movie, Terror in the Sky (1971) (though I had to look up the title and date on IMDB), but the comments on that movie say (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0067844/#comment):

    The NPR interview I mentioned earlier is at http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=4735876. It was broadcast on All Things Considered on 08 July 2005 for the movie's 25th anniversary and featured the movie's directors David and Jerry Zucker and Jim Abrahams. At 5:20 into the program they identify Zero Hour and Arthur Hailey as the source.

    PS
    Attached to the IMDB entry on Zero Hour! is a list of the differences between it and Airplane: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0051221/#comment

    The differences list was much shorter than the similarities list would have been.

    IMO, all the movies in the Scary Movie franchise were bad :( Oh, and add to that list Epic Movie, Disaster Movie, and Date Movie...those were horrible as well.

    The only movie parody in that vein that I have enjoyed was Not Another Teen Movie, for all the 80s movies it paid homage to :cool:

    Not sure why I fell asleep on my sofa while watching Ocean's Twelve last night; and it was only 11:20pm. not sure if just I was too tired or the movie boring

    My stepfather insists that Ocean's Eleven is the worst movie he's ever seen. I haven't seen it, so I have no idea.

    I did like Ocean's Twelve but I'll admit that it drags for the first 45 minutes or hour before kicking into high gear. So it's not surprising that you passed out.

    Loved all the Ocean's movies - had to go rent the originial even, which was also good tho a different ending. But do all you can to not watch Dusk to Dawn - truly awful, even w/George Clooney in it - awful awful!!

    Blue Velvet (Great actors but HORRIBLE and disturbing)
    Clockwork Orange (ditto)
    Legally Blonde II (thankfully missed 1)
    The first 10 minutes of Mariah Scarey's "Glitter" (was cleverly tricked into this one)
    Sideways (and the point was--?)
