Airplane!: The 'Don't Call Me Shirley!' Edition (1980)

Airplane! basically gets by on one joke: sight gags based on tricks of perspective or on thwarting expectation.

Rat Race (2001)

It's full of pratfalls, sight gags, and irreverence toward 'I Love Lucy', Nazis, body piercing, a very unlucky cow, and a dog. Fortunately, Zucker executes them all like a ringmaster.

Rat Race (2001)

A balls-out stupid summer comedy where no one cares about special effects or plots making sense or even about characters winning or losing is not a bad thing. It is, rather, a representative thing.
