This film's title originated at an after-work happy hour among Hollywood colleagues to see who could come up with the most awful pitch for a movie. Producer Craig Berenson, who worked for DreamWorks at the time, gave his pitch for this movie based on a script called "Venom". See more »
(at around 1h 35 mins) The herpetologist, Dr. Price, is shown giving medical directions to the paramedics when the passengers are coming off of the aircraft to be treated. He is identified as "the leading snake expert in the area", so most likely he would hold a PhD in the subject, and not an M.D. If he is in fact an M.D., he is shown to call out for "Lactine and Ringer's solution" to be administered. The actual term is either "Ringer's Lactate" or "Lactated Ringer's solution". This is a standard and common IV solution, and an M.D. would never make a mistake in something as common as that.

Before the credits, there is a quick flash of a open-mouthed snake ready to bite the camera. During the credits, Cobra Starship's "Snakes on a Plane (Bring It!)" music video plays. See more »
In the "world broadcast television premiere" on the FX network, the infamous "Enough is enough!..." line had to be edited, but just deleting the profanity lessened the intensity of the moment. FX opted to dub over the offending adjectives, so viewers heard, "I have had it with these monkey-fighting snakes on this Monday-to-Friday plane!" See more »

I really like thrillers and I was very excited when I heard of this title. The things which really upsetted me was the computer animations were not up to the mark. I mean it didn't look real. So many snakes all together and then a giant constrictor boa on the plane. You really need to have several thousands to show that number. Secondly They never tried to tell how in the first place somebody smuggled so many snakes in. I was hoping that Sam Jackson would make some funny/interesting comments. Not really it was mundane. The only good comment was at the end...."he's my brother from a different mother." Overall if you go and watch this movie, don't go with any expectations. P.S. the only other interesting thing in the movie was to see how the girl sitting close to us completely freaked out.
