Also I could point out quite a few very corny lines in the movie such as "Don't thank me officer, we're all on the same team" and "Don't look...just fly...something came up, I ain't telling what it is...just fly." That second line was more corny than it looks since the pilot sounded like a typical radio broadcaster from the 60's.
Yeah, all that stuff happened after Metropolis was introduced. Before that, the movie was almost 100% serious and was perfect in my eyes.
