The very last thing I remember writing in my review for Airplane! was that too much of a good thing can be bad for you. This was before seeing Airplane II: The Sequel and it turns out I was explosively accurate with the statement.
Ted Striker’s (Hays) luck hasn’t changed a bit. Having saved a plane full of passengers from their deaths and a lack of coffee in the first film, things were looking up. He even got the girl, Elaine (Julie Hagerty) as he departed the aircraft. And yet, he finds himself locked up in a lunatic asylum simply for passing negative judgement on revolutionary space shuttle, The Mayflower. Now, the Mayflower is launching into outer space. Cue computer malfunctions, romance, and William Shatner.
