Airplane! is one of those few golden comedies where logic really goes out the window. Case in point, we don't know why the Lakers star, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, was fronting as a co-pilot named Roger Murdock. We only care that he got to explain to a young fan in the cockpit how he dragged "Walton and Lanier up and down the floor for 48 minutes," while the pilot asked the fan if he's ever seen a grown man naked.
