Is Airplane! The Funniest Movie Ever Made?
When I go to the movies I usually go to laugh. If I am going to the movies and it is not a comedy, I am with my wife and I had no say so in what movie we would see. While Jill likes movies with a message and a plot, I like movies that make me laugh.
A recent internet survey found that when it comes to making people laugh the movie Airplane! is the champ.
The survey used a formula of laughs per minute and the satirical look at Hollywood’s portrayal of the airline industry and travel films starring Leslie Nielsen averaged three laughs a minute.
The Hangover was a fairly close second averaging 2.4 followed by another Leslie Nielsen film The Naked Gun, it averaged 2.3 laughs every 60 seconds. Other films making the survey included Superbad, Borat and Anchorman.
