Snakes On A Plane(2006)
With its crosshairs set on cult film status, the brilliantly titled Snakes On A Plane actually added scenes to get an R rating. Director Ellis: "We increased the violence and the gore. There's more nudity, more radical language from Samuel L" (Empire).... More
Interesting anecdote 2: Samuel L. Jackson apparently read in the trade papers that the film was in pre-production. He rang the filmmakers and asked if the title was a euphemism. No was the answer, just snakes on a plane. Samuel L. said "sign this motherf**ker up."
FBI agent Flynn (Jackson) is escorting an eye witness of a murder to LA on a passenger plane (for safety reasons, obviously). But protectors of the murderer have unleashed a devilish plan. First they gave passengers leis sprayed with a pheromone designed to make snakes go berserk. Then a crate carrying masses of snakes is snuck aboard and opened mid-flight. Hence we have snakes on a plane, going for where the pheromone is: the passengers.Hide

Snakes On A Plane
Can't agree with the people so far. The only reason this is liked is because of the 'hype' and sudden, suposedly 'coolness' of B-grade.
The film is gratuitious, predictable and poorly acted. And saying its supposed doesn't hide the fact. If people had seen it cold (ie: without any reputation), I'm sure most would think of it as the bollocks it is.
I must admist i was a little unsure about how good (or bad) this movie would be. To my surpise, it was totally awesome! Don't get me wrong - the audience knew it was bad, heck even the actors seemed to know it was bad....but its SO bad, that its actually really good. I foudnd it so incredibly spine chilling and fright inducing you can't help but love it! Go in expecting little, and you'll have a squirming good time.
The film was a lot of fun & the audience reaction was suprising, it made the experience enjoyable. In fact, if i'd seen it on DVD I would've hated it. It's the audience participation aspect that was fun.
Best Line: I have to say the simplistic, direct and when isolated, ultimately ridiculous:
"We have got to put up a barricade to protect ourselves from the snakes"
is a winner.
