Motherf---ing Snakes on a Plane Movie Review 01/20/2007
Warning curse words ahead!!!!
Snakes on a Plane20067
An absolutely ridiculousfilm but fun non the less.I watched this comedybecause I fond it darn funny ---and then searched the DVD extras and commentary for some sign that theWriters---Directors and actors were in on the joke.But they all seemed to think that they had made a Horror thriller and not a comedy.I was dumbfounded that they actually thought that people would actually be scared byDigital Snakes on a Plane.
I enjoyed the movie but for all the wrong reasons I guess –because I thought it was so bad its good kind of movie –the (I guess unintended comedy). It wanted so badly to be a big disaster filmlike Earthquakeor Towering Inferno--but the I was laughing as they tried to make it to the other side of the Plane to avoid the deadly snakes.In Poseidon Adventurethey have to make their way all the way to the bottom of the upside ship.Here they have about 30 feet to travel to safety."Snakes Why did it have to be Snakes"Sorry big Indy fan had to say it.
Highlights included –great dialogue.Thefamous Samuel Jackson line "I've had it with these motherfucking snakes on the motherfucking plane"--other great lines included. The pilotsaying"This plane will go down faster then a Thai Hooker"
Samuel Jacksonsays"Snakes on Crack"Even the commentary track has quality quotes---including the quite obviously drunk director rambling on and on slurring his words..And Samuel Jackson commenting--before the Mile High Club topless girl gets attackedsaying the classic commentaryline"We are going to see Snakes on a Tit coming up"
I wonder if the movie had made more money if like Die Hard it would have inspired its own genre.After Die Hardthere wasDie Hard 2 (Die Hard at an airport)
Speed (Die Hard on a Bus)Under Siege and Speed 2 (Die Hard on a ship) --Under Seige 2(Die Hard on a Train)and Sudden Death (Die Hard in a Hockey Arena)just to name a few. Now think of the Snakes on a Plane Rip-offs we could have looked forward to.
