Trivia

The poster design of snakes wrapped around a plane is a reference to the caduceus, which is the symbol for medicine. See more »

Goofs

(at around 31 mins) When the aircraft loses power, the cabin is shown to go completely dark. This would not happen as these size aircraft have emergency lighting in the cabin and on the flight deck which is activated by the loss of normal aircraft electrical power. They are self contained battery types, they come on automatically and remain activated until turned off by the crew, and there are numerous independent sections of them on an aircraft. See more »

Crazy Credits

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 »

Alternate Versions

The DVD replaces a quick shot of a microwave closeup when the male flight attendant nukes a snake; instead of "popcorn," one button now reads "snake" (it appears to be a physical change and reshoot). This is not indicated anywhere on the DVD, nor is the original available, but the director confirms the change in a comment on snakesonablog.com. See more »

Worst than Date Movie. Anaconda was better
24 August 2006 | by acastil7880See 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.
