Goofs

(at around 1h 4 mins) Air-Traffic Controllers never give pilots instructions on how to fly their aircraft. They will never tell anyone to "pull up", at best they would ask the crew to check their altitude or confirm they were aware of the descent. For that, passenger jets are equipped with a Ground Proximity Warning System, GPWS, which automatically tells pilots to pull up if they're too low. 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 »

See this movie with a group of friends. It'll be more fun!
17 August 2006 | by sequined_insanitySee all my reviews

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!!
