Most snakes were digitally created, because the real snakes did not move as much as the filmmakers wanted. See more »
(at around 1h 7 mins) When Sean asks the other passengers to block the stairs from the snakes they start unloading lots of bags from the overhead compartments although the top floor of the plane was originally empty except for the two agents and Sean. 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 »
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 »

Overrated... and not as good as it could have been
Anyone who's seen this movie and given it a 10 may feel good about themselves for promoting what obviously started as an underground film, but an honest look will show you that this movie is grossly overrated. Before I get labeled as someone who "just doesn't get it" concerning this movie, I'd like to explain what I expected: a movie with everything over-the-top: Violence, cursing, and (most importantly) Samuel L. Jackson. What I got was glimpses of the movie I expected interspersed with, unfortunately, what looked like real attempts at plot and character development. Especially painful was watching the rap star's transformation from good guy to bad and back to good again. Pointless, it added nothing to the film. What hurt the most, though, was a lack of Mr. Jackson. He was in the movie, but other than the one expected line towards the end of the film, there really wasn't anything else that was quotable in there. I thought he'd be cursing and killing snakes left and right, but by the time he finally said his "mother *beep* snakes" line, the audience's cheering where I watched it was half-hearted as though to say "well, that was good, but where were all the other parts I came here to cheer for?" Most of the "extreme" scenes felt forced (just think about the line from the guy who pees on the snake), while all it would have taken to make this movie awesome was to not hold back or strive for "acting" or "plot". I gave the movie a 5 because, come on, Sam Jackson is the man and, admittedly, there were some pretty damn funny parts... but I really wanted to rate this higher. The idea was great, but I didn't feel it came close to the hype. Instead, I left feeling like I'd just watched all the deleted scenes of a great movie that just didn't measure up to the finished product.
