Way back in February 2016, I included five funny things about Con Air in one of my Films I Watched In posts (read it here). Recently re-watching the film and giggling through pretty much all of it, I realised a Top 10 was absolutely vital and necessary.
Top 10 Funniest Things in Con Air (1997)
No.1 – this picture
The way it’s implied that Steve Buscemi’s freedom at the end is a good thing – despite him killing loads of people and wearing a “girl’s head as a hat”. Oh, but he didn’t do anything bad to the kid in the trailer park and he does makes funny comments on the plane, so he must be alright!

Love this list, and here is my “Con Air” story: when I ran programming at the E! cable network in the US, I showed the “Con Air” red carpet premiere live from Las Vegas. Disney flew us all over on a private jet, and in each seat was a packet of money for our “parole” – specially designed “Con Air” casino chips from the Hard Rock Casino…we had a great time with the stars of the film, did our live show, then headed back to the airport. On every seat of the returning plane was a box with a stuffed animal in it, just like the film!
That’s fantastic! A real effort made!!!
Sadly Emma, those days are all but gone now, but they were sure fun while they lasted…I was taken to Cape Canaveral in Florida to shoot a special “Armageddon” premiere – and they built a stage and flew in Aerosmith to perform for an hour live!
At least you got to experience all this stuff! Don’t even go there with the Armageddon premiere, that sounds amazing!!!
Those were the days when movie studios really put on a party! Thanks for commenting, always great to hear from you!
Jay forever ❤
I just checked, and I did leave a comment on the original.
Always worth seeing again though!
As ever, Pete. XXX
Thanks Pete 🙂 xxx
