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

South Pacific Air Lines no longer exists, but was re-created in a fictional sense for the film. The airline began service from Honolulu to Tahiti on April 2, 1960, and folded sometime thereafter. See more »
(at around 1h 35 mins) Troy leaves the plane first on the escape slide. In the next shot he can be seen inside the plane again coming down the stairs behind the crowd waiting for their turn on the slide. The DVD audio commentary claims that this error was known but not deliberate. See more »
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 »
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 »
Look the movie was okay, it gave you what it advertised but its not the holy grail man. Is Hollywood getting so bad to where something that just says its got SNAKES ON A PLANE and gives you SNAKES ON A M*&@$&^$ PLANE causes the entire general population (and nerds, dorks, dweebs, fanboys, chunk heads, 40 year old virgins, that Ain't it cool guy) to off and praise it ad infinatum? Really people, be more critical and stop falling in line to hype. Apparently, we've reached a phase where Hollywood crap is digested much more easily than the good stuff. Who would've thought we've just given directors and hack screenwriters the green-light to make even cornier movies with impunity since our expectations are so low. Hey, now you don't even have to get a GED to write the next blockbuster. Just put some ridiculous combination together and bam, people are gonna flock to something like 'Boobs with nunchucks' (don't try that, I'm already writing a spec screenplay with Jessica Simpson as lead, got full backing from the Weinsteins AND Eisner) This is simply a dumb popcorn movie with a plot thinner than Paris Hilton's sex tape. Hollywood can give us better and our expectations are so low that we pay $8 at the box office in droves to see a movie like this because this week nothing else even comes close. That's right, nothing coming out of Hollywood this second is more impressive than SNAKES ON A PLANE. Which probably means Hollywood is out of ideas. I'd bet anyone $50 this was written by some guy with a laptop and screen writing for dummies book at Starbucks and completed in a single lunch break.
And just to show people here how bad it is, SoaP is currently 8.4, that means it is rated more favorably than: Chinatown, Hotel Rwanda, M, the Maltese Falcon, Aliens, A Clockwork orange, Reservoir Dogs, Ragin Bull, Saving Pvt. Ryan, Braveheart, Blade Runner, Cool Hand Luke, Treasure of the Sierra Madre, and Rashomon. Seriously people, improve your tastes a bit. Watch something made more than 6 months ago thats not pointless and derivative or some worthless remake, improve on your attention span, anything.
