Trivia

When the male flight attendant puts the snake in the microwave, he can be seen hitting the 'snake' preset button on that microwave - a somewhat unusual preset for a microwave. See more »

Goofs

The altimeter is shown at 37,000 feet, but the Kholsman window (where the selectable local barometric pressure setting is seen) shows a setting above thirty inches of mercury. This is incorrect, as it would be set to 29.92 (standard barometric pressure) when the aircraft reached 18,000 feet and entered the flight levels. See more »

But it's Snakes on a plane! Get it?
21 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am sick and tired of all these little weenies going on about how this movie "rocked". It is pure CG over-acted CRAP! Don't send an Assassin, it's much more sensible to smuggle hundreds of brightly colored, aggressive, venomous Snakes on a Plane! The only reason people like this movie because they feel they have to. It is not "so bad it's good" It's so bad I'd rather be poked in the eye with a sharp stick then be subjected to this again. I honestly thought was going to be a COMEDY like AIRPLANE! A spoof! Was I wrong. It's that whole "It sucks, get it!" Or Samuel A. Jackson yells "Snakes on the Plane! thing. Well I'm sorry, I don't get it. It looks like a bunch of wimps gave the movie industry more money to make more movies like Triple X and Die Hard. If you what spend money to watch a movie in the company of the same people who bought William Hung's CD, still live in their mommies basement, and stink of plastic chair sweat from days on the computer playing online games and looking at porn, then rush to the theater and ask for one (since I doubt you have a girlfriend) ticket for Snakes on a stupid-butt Plane. To hell with movies like Full metal Jacket, Pulp Fiction, True Romance, 12 Monkeys, Clerks, etc. There's no irony in watching good movies. The true decline of the western civilization. Calling this a cult film is an Insult to true Cult classics like Repo man, or even Orgazmo. I've said enough here.
