What's Buzzworthy? Great Airplane Movies

What's Buzzworthy? Great Airplane Movies

At one time or another, we've all found ourselves on a long flight, desperate for any way to kill time. That's when the airplane movie comes in. In my opinion, the best airplane movies are pure entertainment (not too much thinking necessary), and they help pass the time so quickly you're on the ground before you know it.

The Devil Wears Prada was one of those for me. I somehow hadn't seen it by the time it hit airplane screens, but it was the perfect thing to chew up a couple of hours of my time on a cross-country flight last year. Even my boyfriend, who probably would have rolled his eyes if I'd rented it at home, had to admit it was a pretty fun movie.

So for this week's Buzzworthy challenge, I'm asking you to track down the best movies you've seen on planes. Just use Buzzsugar's cool bookmarking tool to bookmark some fun flicks online, tag them with the phrase airplane movies, and tell me why they were great to watch at 30,000 feet. I'll post some readers' picks here next week.

You can also make a list of your picks. Here are mine:

The 40-year-old Virgin is my favorite airplane movie. It's not something that I would normally choose to watch but it was great fun on a cross-continent flight.

I saw Coach Carter a few years ago on a flight-great movie! The worst movie I've ever seen on a plane was Lake House-ugh!

Most my recent flights have been shorter ones - the only movie I actually remember having seen on a plane is one of the "Pierce Brosnan as Bond" movies, Goldeneye. I remember it, because at the time I was not really old enough to watch it in cinemas in Norway, but by being on the plane it was difficult not to watch.
