The recent release of the movie Flight - in which Denzel Washington plays a pilot who pulls off an outrageous manoeuvre during a crash - got the team at Travel wondering what would be the worst movies to play as inflight entertainment.
A blogger on BookingBuddy.com beat us to it. Here's their list.
1. Nightmare at 20,000 Feet
A classic episode of The Twilight Zone in which William Shatner looks out the window and sees a freaky flying creature attacking the wing.
2. The Langoliers
A Stephen King TV miniseries in which a plane somehow flies through a rift in time to find weird Pac-Man-style monsters eating the landscape.
3. Cast Away and/or Lost Season 1
Spectacular crash scenes in both.
4. Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo
According to BookingBuddy.com "this movie should not be shown anywhere, at any time, for any reason, and least of all on a plane full of people".
5. Con Air
A great movie in which Nicolas Cage sports a great mullet. And there's another crash.
More criminals on a plane. And some criminally bad acting from Ray Liotta.
7. Snakes on a Plane
Samuel L. Jackson in a reptile/airliner cross-over classic.
8. The Exorcist
Scary on the ground. Scary in the air.
9. 9 weeks
BookingBuddy.com reckons this "is about as inappropriate as it gets, on so many levels".
Surely this would be okay to watch on a plane? Don't call me Shirley.
