Snakes On The Plane (2006) DVDThe plot: An FBI agent (Samuel L. Jackson) brings a murder witness on an airplane. During the flight, snakes come out out of everywhere. The good: ehm… nothing.

The bad: you can tell you are going to see a bad movie from the opening sequence – the acting is going to be horrible. The plot is as simple as a shoe. It is predictable and stupid. Perhaps that’s why none of the actors could not play it seriously and keep their faces straight. Everything is a cliche: when the first snake attack happens in the airplane bathroom where a new couple locked up to have a little fun, I knew they are going to die and the chick is going to bitten in the boob. When the 3rd victim was about to die, I knew the snake is going to get him by the dick. After that I knew we will see some dead people that look like they are out of Spielberg’s movies I was just waiting for a snake come out of somebody’s mouth. It did. Then I knew the pilots would die and Jackson and someone from the passengers will land the airplane. Praise the PlayStation 2. Snakes were all CGI. The characters are caricatures. What happened to the villain?

Most Memorable Quote: “Enough is enough. I’ve had it with these motherfucking snakes on this motherfucking plane”.

The summary: the most entertaining part of this movie is its stupidity. You never know what’s going to be the next stupid thing the director of Final Destination 2 and 4 David R. Ellis and writers John Heffernan and Sebastian Gutierrez will surprise you with. It’s so dumb it’s like watching a dumb person screw up over and over. I was laughing my head off. Perhaps this is a black comedy, not a disaster movie. With exception of Cellular, this is a typical Ellis’s movie.

The cast: FBI Agent Neville Flynn – Samuel L. Jackson | Claire Miller – Julianna Margulies | Sean Jones – Nathan Phillips | Mercedes – Rachel Blanchard

The credits: Director – David R. Ellis | Writers – John Heffernan & Sebastian Gutierrez | Music – Trevor Rabin | Cinematography – Adam Greenberg

    The best part of this movie was the promotion they had for it. Does anyone remember when they sent out calls where Sam Jackson leaves you an automated voice mail? That was amazing!
