Is It Any Good?

Kids say (1):

Though it definitely has Airplane! on the brain (Julie Hagerty has a cameo and repeats some of that movie's famous dialogue), this movie lacks just about everything that made its predecessor great. Above all, LARRY GAYE: RENEGADE MALE FLIGHT ATTENDANT is very simply unfunny. The jokes are forced and uninspired, ranging from cheap slapstick to cheesy innuendo. The characters are too flat to be sympathetic, and it's impossible to care.

The best that can be said for Larry Gaye is that it manages to be less offensive than it might have been, avoiding deliberately disgusting or button-pushing humor. The sex jokes, though not very good, at least aren't based on fear (although, as the title might imply, it does have more than its share of dumb "gay" jokes). And somehow a huge roster of decent actors agreed to appear in small roles, including Marcia Gay Harden, Stanley Tucci, Henry Winkler, Jason Alexander, and Molly Shannon.
