While practicing motocross in Hawaii, Sean Jones witnesses the brutal murder of an important American prosecutor by the powerful mobster Eddie Kim. FBI agent Neville Flynn persuades him to testify against Eddie in Los Angeles. They board the red-eye Flight 121 of Pacific Air, occupying the entire first-class section. However, Eddie dispatches hundred of different species of snakes airborne with a time-operated device in the luggage to release the snakes into the flight with the intent of crashing the plane. Neville and the passengers must struggle with the snakes to survive.Written by

In television airings of the movie, the often quoted line is changed to "I have had it with these monkey-fighting snakes on this Monday-to-Friday plane!" Ironically, Samuel L. Jackson later ended up fighting monkey type creatures in The Legend of Tarzan (2016) and Kong: Skull Island (2017). See more »
(at around 1h 7 mins) When Flynn and Claire are trying to pull the aircraft out of the dive, the controllers readout shows the aircraft going from 1,344 feet to 591 feet in three second. This would be a descent of over 15,000 feet per minute, or at this point 2.4 seconds from impact. An aircraft of this size has too much energy at this descent rate to be leveled off before impacting the water. See more »

See this movie with a group of friends. It'll be more fun!
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!!
