This is a spoof of the airport disaster movies. When the crew of an airplane are struck by some form of virus, the fate of the passengers depends on an former war pilot who is the only one able to land the plane safely! The passengers represent a selection of interesting wacky characters who seem to take every word for its literal meaning.
Robert Hays juggles 3 balls for about 5 seconds as part of a disco dancing scene about 20 minutes into the movie. Later, someone spins a basketball on his finger.
