buntz: Gunny Highway: I am pretty sure Blinkin responds, "Did you say, 'Abe Lincoln?'"And he replies "No, I said "Hey Blinkin'"He explained the joke. It wasn't necessary. The funny was the blind guy thought he said "Abe Lincoln"Same thing started happening in Naked Gun 2 and worse in 3.Jane tries to slap Frank and he catches her left hand. Then her right hand. So a third hand comes up and slaps him. On the Police Squad show and first Naked Gun, Frank going on as if nothing weird just happened IS the joke.But after the slap gag Frank stops and makes a face. He's confused where the third hand came from. The whole joke is Frank is never aware of the craziness around him. And as soon as he is aware of it, it's no longer funny, it's forced.... in my opinion.
cyberspacedout: The Hey Blinkin joke might have worked if someone dressed as Abe Lincoln had suddenly walked on camera and stayed reciting the Gettysburg Address before Chappelle's character cuts him off with the response.

Shakes999: In this thread. People calling Mel brooks over rated and claiming the cinematic piece of shiat that is "Not Another Teen Movie" is actually pretty funny.
Crewmannumber6: Comedy is like a frog. When you dissect it, it dies.
Snatch Bandergrip: I'd say Scream was a damn good one - just done in a more tongue-in-cheek fashion than the farcical slapstick style of ZAZ and Brooks.
Dwight_Yeast: Hot Shots was worth it for the scene where the Sheens shout "I loved you in 'Wall St'" at each other from passing PT boats.Otherwise, not as funny as Airplane.
gunga galunga: If Airplane was released today...INT. - PASSENGER CABIN - NIGHT(The stewardess is handing out meals.)STEWARDESS: Here's your fish, Gordron Ramsay.GORDON RAMSAY: This fish is raaaaaaawwwww!!!!!STEWARDESS: Will you please stop playing Words With Friends, Alec Baldwin?ALEC BALDWIN: You're a rude, thoughtless, little pig.PASSENGER: Hey, look! Ted Cruz is filibustering first class.TED CRUZ: I do not like Obamacare.(The action turns to slow motion. Quicksilver runs in and gives Ted Cruz a wedgie. Just like he gave a wedgie to that security guard in the latest X-Men movie. That's the joke.)PASSENGER: Hey, look. It's the queen from Frozen.(The queen from Frozen sings a drawn-out hip hop version of "Let It Go" to pad the movie's running time by a few minutes.)FROZEN QUEEN: I'll turn this plane into an eternal winter.WINTER SOLDIER: Did somebody say winter?PASSENGER #2: Hey, look! It's the Winter Soldier.(Captain America appears and the two of them fight for five minutes to pad the movie's running time a bit more.)
Mugato: I'm a fan of the Scream movies, (yes all of them)
largedon: I always loved this movie.
