"You ever seen a grown man naked?" No doubt you're familiar with that and other memorable quotes from Airplane!, the hilarious, gag-heavy and mildly racist disaster-film parody about a traumatized former pilot who tries to reconnect with an ex-flame/flight attendant on a troubled plane carrying an inflatable doll, pair of naked breasts, singing nun, Hare Krishnas, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and June Cleaver speaking jive. Directed by Tom O'Connor, Airplane LIVE! at Flight Theater at the Complex lovingly re-enacts the 1980 classic comedy, with some modern twists thrown in, including bonus character Samuel L. Jackson, plus two teen girls speaking in millennial terms instead of jive. The cast encourages audience members to yell out their favorite one-liners. Surely they can't be serious? They are serious. And don't call them Shirley.
