Best Score – Stayin Alive

Purpose of Best Score.

Airplane! (1980)

Starring: Leslie Neilson, Lloyd Bridges, Robert Stack, Robert Hays, Julie Hagerty, Peter Graves

Screenplay by: Jim Abrahams, David Zucker and Jerry Zucker

Directed by: Jim Abrahams, David Zucker and Jerry Zucker

Music by:”Stayin’ Alive”, The Bee Gees

Three decades later, this film still holds up as a satire of disaster movies, specifically airplane disaster movies (Snakes on a Plane indicates the genre still has legs, albeit for the lowest common denominator). One of the godfathers of nonsensical parody films along with Spaceballs, Blazing Saddles, and The Naked Gun, Airplane! took out its hilarious wrath on contemporary pop culture with a send-up of Saturday Night Fever. With the Bee Gee’s iconic song playing, the two main characters played by Robert Hays and Julie Hagerty rip up the dance floor with love at first sight.
