Over Macho Grande?
Not bar related, but I had never seen "Zero Hour!" before, until a couple of months ago. For what it is, it's not a bad flick. But I appreciated it much more being intimately familiar with "Airplane."

Both of them came from the same studio, but the connection between the two scripts and the copyright issues were a little more complicated than that.

I'm a big fan of Police Squad! That series was cut short, too soon. The execs thought that TV audiences were too dumb to get the jokes.

I guess along the lines of Thunderball and You Only Live Twice, although the circumstances were a little different..

Was doing a little more reading and I think this is the highlight of the Wiki:

Graves rejected the script at first, considering it tasteless. On the DVD commentary, Abrahams said, "I don't understand. What did he think was tasteless about pedophilia?"
I'm also a bit disappointed I never saw the Delta safety video with Kareem while flying. I guess that was right after I PCS'ed and didn't need to fly as much. (Video also includes the on-going no smoking finger wag gag)

That's great! I don't know how I missed it too.
