Trivia

Snakes are often mistakenly referred to as "poisonous". However the correct term is "venomous." Poison is ingested whereas venom is injected. See more »

Goofs

(at around 1h 19 mins) When Flynn goes down into the cargo bay and resets the outflow valve circuit breaker, it is shown to be a large industrial type electrical switch such as is used in house or commercial structures. There are no breakers like this on any aircraft. Instead they use remote controlled circuit breakers to control large electrical relays in the system. In addition, the ceiling of the "cargo bay" shows taped drywall joints and the walls appear to be cinder blocks - materials highly unlikely to be used on a modern aircraft. 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!!
