David Zucker comes out of the closet
10/20/04 | me

Posted on 10/20/2004 7:48:58 AM PDT by hoosierboy

Just heard on Laura Ingrahms show that hollywood producer David Zucker has admitted he is a republican and will be voting for Bush. He is known for the movies Airplane, naked gun, kentucky fried movie, baseketball, and top secret all classics that I am sure other freepers like me enjoy.

A hospital! Why, what is it?
It's a big building with patients, but that's not important right now.

We had a thread yesterday on Zucker. I pointed out that in the movie Airplane, Howard Jarvis (of Proposition 13 fame) made a cameo as the guy in Ted Stryker's cab. Methinks he's been a Republican for a lot longer.

Airplane was just on TV last night! I think it was Fox Movie Channel, or one of those mega-stations.

So much for Republicans not having a sense of humor.

Maybe Zucker feels like I, and many, many former Democrats, do - the Dem Party left me, not the other way around.

And I never looked back . . .

Airplane, what a funny film! When I saw the scene where they were "landing on instruments" I nearly choked on my popcorn. An absolute classic!!!

For some reason, the film "Animal House" was never as funny as the first time I saw it. Or the first few times, whatever. Airport i could watch over and over. I wonder why some comedy is like that, and some is not?

Oh well. Back to work. But with a smile on my face. :)

I love those movies, but recall at least one really vicious slam on Reagan in them.

From Top Secret (my personal favorite Zucker movie):

Hillary: "My uncle was born in America."
Nick: "Oh, Really?"
Hillary: "But he was one of the lucky ones. He managed to escape in a balloon during the Jimmy Carter presidency.

The Reagan slam was in Airplane where one of the passengers after getting food poisoning, stated "I haven't felt this bad since I saw that Ronald Reagan film." At least she was only slamming his movies, not necessarily his politics. See my quote from Top Secret, now that was a slam against Jimmy Carter.

Getting good dramatic actors--actors well known for their serious dramatic roles, NOT for comedy--to star in the movie is what really made it work.

No no no, it was something where someone says something of which the upshot is that Reagan's stupid, senile, insane, or all three.

Billy (to Ted Stryker): I have a question.

Ted: What is it?

Billy: It's an interrogatory statement used to gain knowledge, but that's not important.

Randy : I'm sorry, I don't understand.
First Jive Dude : Cutty say 'e can't HANG!
Jive Lady : Oh stewardess! I speak jive.
Randy : Oh, good.
Jive Lady : He said that he's in great pain and he wants to know if you can help him.
Randy : All right. Would you tell him to just relax and I'll be back as soon as I can with some medicine?
Jive Lady : Jus' hang loose, blood. She gonna catch ya up on da' rebound on da' med side.
Second Jive Dude : What it is, big mama? My mama no raise no dummies. I dug her rap!
Jive Lady : Cut me some slack, Jack! Chump don' want no help, chump don't GET da' help!
First Jive Dude : Say 'e can't hang, say seven up!
Jive Lady : Jive ass dude don't got no brains anyhow! Hmmph!
