Trivia

(at around 1 hour 11 minutes) When Sean mentions how hot it is, Agent Flynn responds with "I'm from Tennessee, I hadn't noticed". Samuel L. Jackson is actually from Tennessee. See more »

Goofs

(at around 1h 28 mins) When the hole in the side of the plane, shot out by agent Flynn is first shown, it is on the left hand side of the plane from the pilot's point of view. This is further shown when the snakes fly out the window, as they fly out and to the left as it as shot. When the shot moves to the outside of the plane, the hole is now on the opposite side of the aircraft. See more »

Worst than Date Movie. Anaconda was better
24 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was the worst movie I have seen since "Date Movie." I was laughing through out the whole movie instead of being scared. It was funny how the snakes would search for particular section of the passengers body to attack for example, the eye, the tongue, the butt, the breast. If we have seen national geographic channel we know snakes wont stay clinched on the body once they bite. For each particular scene the snakes would bite the passengers and would stay on the body biting the person. I believe the producer did not study his information on snakes and their behavior. I cant believe I wasted my money on this movie.So I don't recommend this movie trust just wait until it is at the dollar theatre or rent it.
