Blazing.   Airplane is great too but I give my vote to Blazing Saddles.  It's so racist though.
I don't think it is racist.  There was once a time when we could make light of our differences.  Now we are turning into PC robots.

Blazing Saddles is the opposite of racist.  It's satire.

Blazing Saddles is the opposite of racist.  It's satire.

We're from different schools.

I was in a elevator ( with a TV screen ) in NYC a few years back that was playing Blazing Saddles.   Why that movie was playing but probably some cable feed.

A few black people got on the elevator and the slave scene was on.   They were "what the f**k is that ?" and went down to complain.

I stand by opinion but I laughed a lot when I first saw the movie, in a movie theater, when it was first released.

Satire is often misinterpreted by the very people that are being defended in it.  That's one of the big risks of irony.  Not everyone gets the joke.

Folks, all of us, tend to spend far too much time analyzing our own feelings, and not enough time analyzing the intent of others.

Lots of funny scenes in both but Airplane is my winner. The disco playing radio station getting blown off the air when the plane crashes into the antenna tower - precious!

WRONG!!!

It's all about Blazing Saddles. Love the chaos at the end. Particularly the drunk knocking someone out with his breath.
