Critics reviews

Allowances must be made for the comedic standards of the times, which are inevitably bound up in social attitudes, usually acting on behalf of each generation’s worst qualities. In that sense, it’s a little easier to forgive both the ZAZ team’s blatant homo-leery posturing in The Kentucky Fried Movie and Airplane!, and to forgive Stucker himself for letting them turn his sexuality into a recurring punchline.
