    My favourite comedy of all time has raised a few questions.

    I was watching my friends over 10 year old VHS copy the other day and it is very different to the version I saw on Sky and versions I have seen on TV.

    Most notably his tape did not have Stayin' Alive as the music in the dance spoof just some tune that remotely resembled it (copyright maybe.) The video version also did not have the bit when the stewardess inadvertantly causes the young girl requiring a new heart to go into arrest.

    Can anyone confirm whether these two bits are in the DVD version?

    Also on SKY, the glue sniff bit was shorter. Sky never cut unless they bring a film out of the watershed to offer it to other viewers at an earlier time.

    If the film is on at it's correct time (8 or 10) it is not cut.

    Anyone shed any light?

    Thanks.

    Dave.

    Hi

    I have Airplane on DVD and I can confirm that the music staying alive is in the film and the stewardess does cause the girl to go into arrest. I have never seen the film before (well not for about 10 years!) so I can not comment on the length of the glue scene but it is def in the film.

    "Looks Like I chose the wrong week to give up posting replies"

    Airplane 2 is also very good!

    Thanks!

    In the glue sniff scene does he say "Looks like I picked the wrong week to stop sniffing glue"?

    He should also look to the his side looking really spaced out.

    Do you have the Region 1 or 2?

    This film cracked me up I will buy it then I just die when Robert Stack takes off his glasses to reveal another pair.

    My favourite bit in the entire film though is when Stack is in front of the mirror and says "Let's go!" and walks out of the mirror.

    Great.

    What about everyone else what are your favourite bits?

    I am sure he says "looks Like I picked the wrong week to stop sniffing glue" but will have to check if he turns to the side and looks spaced out.

    I too watched it on Sky and it was cut to shreads!!!!!

    Another small cut was the scene was the old lady watches a guys take a drink from a hip flask....

    She looks at him and he offers her some... she turns her nose up and shouts no... then turns and snorts some coke!!!!!

    Yeah that's right I remember that bit was cut too!

    Not like Sky must be as I said before to show it slightly earlier.

    "They had a choice of Fish or steak."
    "Ah yes I remember I had Lasagne"

    Another bit cut on Sky is just after Elaine uses the PA to ask if anyone can fly a plane, all hell breaks loose and a rather well endowed young lady comes into shot and bounces around for a while.

    Gutted when they cut that... :mad:

    I owned the old vhs video of Airplane,on the back cover is stated "Home video version,some music re-scored" It was re-released a few years later with the proper soundtrack,as the "Complete uncut version"
