I blogged about this before when I rewatched it during a period of unemployment several years ago. While parts of this movie haven’t aged well, MOST of it is still extremely funny and way ahead of its time (that’s what they all say)…

How We Made: Airplane!

I’ve also seen the Letterman clip where Leslie Nielsen uses his ‘fart machine’ (right around the 6 min mark) – mildly funny but the best part is that you can tell Letterman is annoyed after the first couple times, and it’s always funnier when the host isn’t in control of the situation – while LN sits there like a kid and just tries not to laugh at himself:
