Yes, I know quite well. In fact, the story of how Zucker found Zero Hour is kind of famous:

From wikipedia:
"The ZAZ came to the idea of spoofing airplane disaster films when they accidentally taped the 1957 film Zero Hour!, while they were looking for commercials to spoof.[2"> Abrahams later described Zero Hour! as "... the serious version of Airplane!"."

Doesn`t everyone?

But if you want REALLY synchronous, there are incredible similarities between the movie Airplane and Flying High!

I heard that "Spaceballs" was a spoof of some popular science fiction movie from way back. Oh what was it called? Star... something. Oh well.

Jesus, of course it`s going to look like other films... it`s a spoof. It wouldn`t work if you didn`t recognise any scenes or jokes from other movies.
