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 35 mins) The flight attendant is shown entering the cockpit through the use of a keypad on the forward wall next to the cockpit door. There are no keypads in actual aircraft as that would defeat the purpose of having a security door, since a hijacker could possibly get the code by watching the crew enter, or by forcing a cabin crew member to open it under threat. The cockpit door is controlled electrically (or mechanically) by the flight deck crew only. This is a requirement of the hardened cockpit door design. See more »
A lot of people on IMDb have given Snakes on a Plane a 10/10 rating and left comments like "omg this is best movie ever lol." Unfortunately, most of these people had come to this conclusion before seeing the movie, and are still high on the Internet hype that built the movie up to be something it's not.
I guess there's no real point to writing a review of Snakes On A Plane. With a title like that, you've already made up your mind about if you want to see it. But keep this in mind...
Snakes On A Plane isn't a comedy movie. It isn't a horribly cheesy or bad (intentionally or not) movie, either, or one that's "so bad it's good," which is a phrase that gets thrown around a lot in SOAP discussions. Also, the movie's not all about Samuel L. Jackson being a badass or swearing a lot, although it happens. Snakes On A Plane is a entertaining mid-grade thriller movie that pretty much delivers what you'd expect from a Hollywood movie about snakes on an airplane. No more, no less.
Don't see this movie if you're expecting to constantly laugh at Samuel L. Jackson showing off how cool he is. There are plenty of moments where Sam kicks ass and gives some great one-liners and does amusing things, but he is offscreen just as often as he is on it.
Snakes On A Plane isn't the best movie of the year. It's not the funniest movie of the year or the scariest, but it is a good movie if you're looking for mindless fun involving a lot of snakes on an airplane, some gratuitous gore and nudity, and a few great Samuel L. Jackson moments, check it out.
