Quotes

Kristin: Look, let's just wait it out. Sooner or later it's bound to get hungry.
Dr. Anton Rudolph: You must understand, it's still basically a snake. Even at its size, it can go without a month without feeding right outside that door.
John Cooper: There's not enough food in here to wait that long. And if it did decide to leave, where do you think it would go?
Kristin: Ruby. Oh, my God. The whole town is like an all-you-can-eat special.
John Cooper: And I sure don't want to wait around here to see what's gonna happen. So what do you say? How about it?
Theresa: Well...

Greatest Movie Ever!!!!! (ok just kidding!)
24 February 2002 | by irishbabeSee all my reviews

Ok, so this movie was a piece of trash. The snake, which only appeared two or three times in the whole movie, looked like the graphics from a Super Nintendo. And the writing sounded like it was written by people from Sesame Street. And let's not even talk about the random lesbian scene at the beginning of the movie, (I don't even know where to start with that one.) But COME ON!!!!! WIL WHEATON!!!!! How could you not like a movie that has Wil Wheaton in it. This purple hair really did something for me. I know I would like to buy a house from some punk kid with purple hair. And that death scene. That should have won an oscar! It isn't everyday that you see Wesley Crusher butted into a wall and then eaten by a giant venom spitting Python. This is just a fun movie to watch. Watch it with some friends. It is a hoot!
