He is protected and persuaded by the FBI agent Neville Flynn to testify against Eddie in Los Angeles. They embark in the red-eye Flight 121 of Pacific Air, occupying the entire first-class.

Neville and the passengers have to struggle with the snakes to survive. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

(at around 1 hour 26 minutes) The phrase "snakes in the cockpit", which is said in the film, is used by pilots in reference to the high number of complex tasks they have to accomplish. See more »

Goofs

(at around 35 mins) The flight attendant is shown entering the cockpit through the use of a keypad on the forward wall next to the cockpit door. There are no keypads in actual aircraft as that would defeat the purpose of having a security door, since a hijacker could possibly get the code by watching the crew enter, or by forcing a cabin crew member to open it under threat. The cockpit door is controlled electrically (or mechanically) by the flight deck crew only. This is a requirement of the hardened cockpit door design. See more »

See this movie with a group of friends. It'll be more fun!
17 August 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I was surprised at how much i was NOT disappointed by this movie. I was expecting the cheesy lines, and the predictable actions (and re-actions) of the characters, but knowing I was going into a movie that was hyped as "so bad, it's good!" made it easier to ignore logic and just enjoy myself. Seeing it with a big gang of friends certainly didn't hinder that enjoyment either. In fact, I don't think i would've enjoyed it as much if I didn't have 6 other people laughing their asses off right along with me! And having the entire audience yell out THAT line along with Sam Jackson was incredibly amusing. "Snakes on a Plane"- I don't know if I'd label it a "Best Worst" movie (it's no Deathrace 2000); I think I honestly liked it too much for that. I found it hilarious, campy, and gratifying. It's a must-see for B-is-for-bad movie fans, and mainstream followers will get a kick out of it too. Just for fun: bring along a pocket full of rubber snakes. I'm sure you'll think of SOMETHING to do with them!!
