Even Sam Jackson could not save this one.
I think he even went up to the cockpit at one point and radioed for assistance, 'help, I'm stuck in a bad movie and can't get out.'
No wonder the trailer was vague and showed so little, we never would have bothered with this junk.
A pilot friend of mine mentioned it would be impossible for that many snakes to be on board without significantly altering the weight of the plane. Someone would have noticed.
I am glad we have video games that feature flight simulation, otherwise the gamer guy would not have been able to land the plane.
Skip this, it is awful.

If you are a Samuel L. Jackson fan like myself, this one is worth a look. The effects are a bit "hokey" for my taste. It reminded me of Anaconda which I thought was awful. There are some great characters ib this flick and I highly recommend you seeing the "Blooper"/GAG scenes. They are better than the entire film.

"I went into my packed theater this morning expecting to be mildly entertained. Believe it or not, this is the most vocal audience I have ever seen a movie with. I can't imagine the early showings last night, they must have been insane. Nobody left the theater to use the bathroom, and people were cheering and jumping out of their seats throughout. The film starts off really cheesy, but once they get on that plane, you won't be able to resist the venom this films packs. Samuel L. Jackson rocked the house with his great acting and line delivery (you know the one), and even the CGI snakes looked really good. I figured the most I would give this film would be 3 stars, but the movie won me over. If you just want to have mindless fun with loads of snakes, a bada** black dude, and some gross out gore with a little boobie action thrown in for good measure, look no further than the aptly titled Snakes on a Motherf**kin Plane!"

Snakes On A Plane DVD
Warning not for young children ( if you ever want them to fly ) some frontal nudity and violence galore.
This film does for commercial flying what JAWS did for swimming in the ocean.

I especially laughed at the guy draining his hose who had a snake latch onto his tallywacker. Ouch!
Recommended for teenagers and up. Not recommended for small children.

That's What I'm Talkin' About

"Look, if I wanted to watch one of the greatest movies of all time... "Citizen Kane" or "The Godfather" or "Jean de Florette" or "Airplane!", I would have stayed home with my DVDs. No. If I wanted subtle man-versus-vermin psychological horror, with organ music, I would have stayed home and listened to William Conrad as "Leiningen vs. The Ants".
No. No, no, no! I wanted to go out on a Friday night and I wanted to see snakes on a plane. Mo'fo' snakes on a mo'fo' plane. And that is exactly what I got.
The problems with this movie are very few. Number one, the main character in this movie is a surfer dude but the movie was shot in British Columbia. That's not a problem. Good second unit photography will have you convinced that you're on Waikiki Beach, and you didn't come to this movie to see surfer dudes, anyway. You wanted to see a CGI plane battling turbulence, and really vicious CGI snakes.
Number two, it takes about 20 to 30 minutes for the snakes to get out into the cabin and start rearing and biting. That's not a problem either. Make a list of every delicate body part you'd expect a snake to bite, and once the snakes get out, game on. You're waiting for the big python to show up? Well, that's at least an hour wait, but once he's out, game on.
Number three, it takes Samuel L. Jackson so long to drop That Line that you almost wonder if he's not ever going to say it. Again, not a problem.
Look, this movie was probably first-drafted in screenwriting class. The writers care way too much about their reluctant FBI witness to a mob hit scenario, when the audience just wants snakes. Snakes on a plane. And then when we finally hit the airport, you can do a head count of the passengers and figure out who's going to die, how, and when. There's the stuffy British business traveler (I had him pegged as the first to die), the hot-to-trot sexy young couple -- the girl's in pink thong panties, the aging flight attendant on her last flight, and the ambiguously gay male steward. Finally, the overweight comedy co-pilot with the Texas accent. The script writes itself.
But it's got snakes. Snakes on a plane. If you took the time to come to this page and rate the movie one or two stars, you clearly didn't realize what movie you were buying tickets to go see and you shouldn't have been there in the first place. If you want to see your awesomely bad snakes on a plane picture, this is literally the only movie to go see.
Sequels: Snakes on a Train. Snakes in Portland, Maine. Snakes in the Drain. Snakes in the Fast Lane. Snakes in the Cold November Rain. Snakes in a Music Video with House of Pain. Snakes in the Batter's Box with Ferris Fain. And finally... Snakes on a Train II. Bring it on!"
