Phones On An Airplane


Just saw the trailer for Airplane Mode. Looks like something between Airplane! and Snakes on Plane. Anyone seen it yet?

No.

It looks like one of the endless Scary Movie knockoffs where unless you know who these people are and what their shtick is, or what meme is popular at the moment, it's not funny, and won't be funny at all after a few years.

I linked the trailer to a friend and jokingly suggested he watch it (running joke that he starts into media he hates and then hate-watches the whole thing anyway). He did so -- hey, it's his seven bucks -- and said it was terrible and unfunny. It was also apparently filmed in 2016 and only released now so not only is it full of in-jokes and YouTube personalities, it's full of 2016's in-jokes and YT personalities.

I'd watch this movie, but I don't want to get AIDS. Just kidding. I'm white!

So it's got a lot of whatever 2016's equivalents were of the 30-50 feral hogs, huh?

I think my life won't be any poorer for having missed this movie.

Yeah, even if you're supposedly the demographic for this movie, I can't imagine a ton of people saying "Haha, I remember that moderately funny thing that was popular for a few weeks, three years ago! This is great!"
