AIRPLANE! is a 1980 US comedy in which a former pilot has to land a stricken plane after its pilot and co-pilot are struck down by food poisoning.

Sex

There are occasional sex references, including a man reading an adult magazine in front of a rack containing similar material, with a cover showing topless women in pin-up photos. In another scene, a pilot makes oblique sexual comments to a young boy who is accompanied by his mother and who does not respond to these remarks. A female flight attendant inflates a blow-up pilot, giving the appearance that she is performing a sexual act. In other scenes, a woman reminds a man how she used to sit on his face and wriggle, a woman is seen in bed with a horse lying beside her, and a woman whose breasts are exposed is seen amongst panicking airline passengers.

Drugs

The film also contains a scene in which a seemingly respectable middle-aged woman snorts cocaine and a scene in which an increasingly unhinged man takes amphetamines and, subsequently, sniffs glue. The man subsequently appears with his hair standing on end and floats upside down.

The film also contains comic violence and mild language, including, 'shit', 'pisser', 'crap', bastard' and 'putana'.
