At this year's Florida Film Festival, we interviewed Robert Hays and David Zucker, two of the brains behind what's surely one of the greatest movies ever made – Airplane! (and don't call me Shirley).

Hays told us all about the late Leslie Nielsen's gas problem (for real), and Zucker gave us plenty of good advice on how to make it in the film industry, like: "Give up, you'll never make it."
