Yes, I actually saw this movie in the theater..and it was HILARIOUS! Besides hearing all about the Internet parodies and all the hype, I didn’t really know anything about this film. Did anyone really know what the film besides all these mutha fuckin’ snakes on a plane? So I had to witness this movie for myself and see if it lived up to the hype. Well I think it does and certainly a fun camp-fest of a movie!

Snakes on a Plane is about some surfer dude who witnesses a murder by one of the most wanted man in the US. FBI Agent Flynn comes to the rescue and tells the guy he has to go into the witness protection program to testify against that bad guy. Somehow the evil bad guy finds out what flight the surfer dude is on and puts a shitload of snakes on the plane..hence the title and that’s pretty much all you need to know!

I went into this movie without any expectations and came out enjoying one hell of a fun movie! It doesn’t take itself seriously (thank god!), and it just seems like it gets more ridiculous as the movie goes along. I was cracking up with laughter the whole time, even when it wasn’t intended. All the deaths were hysterical because you don’t really give a shit about any of the characters. You just have to laugh; especially when some snobby British guy throws a chihuahua to a giant python and the python eats it up….THEN goes after the British guy who threw the dog. After that, the python swallows the entire body of the British guy from the head down. That’s an Oscar moment right there folks! I really hate snakes and get freaked out by them in real life, but seeing these CGI snakes crawl inside and out of bodies wasn’t bad to watch at all. I don’t even think I shivered or got scared at all because everything was just too damn funny. I think if they used real snakes I would have been a little more squeamish.

Of course I got to talk about Samuel L. Jackson. This movie wouldn’t be so comical and great if he wasn’t in this. He knew from the beginning this movie was going to be insane and ridiculous, and he just went with the flow. He pulls off his usual movie character and takes it a step further. People laugh and cheer when he says the infamous forced line that you already know without seeing the movie. I just hope this movie spawns a bunch of sequels with him in it like: Badgers in a Bank, Zombies on a Bus, Tigers in a Nursery, Wasps in a Phone Booth, or Rhinos in a School. Ahh the endless possibilities! Jackson’s career is set with these, just bad sequel after bad sequel! I think the only thing this movie could have used was Jack Bauer coming in screaming, “WHERE’S THE SNAKES!!??” After that, he just takes a parachute and leaves the plane. Would have been completely random and out there, but so is the entire movie.

So go get drunk or high, buy a ticket for Snakes on a Plane and giggle your mutha fuckin’ ass off.

Favorite Scenes: Sex in the bathroom, and the British dude getting eaten up after throwing the dog to the snakes.
