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

Ronny Yu was attached to direct, speaking enthusiastically about the project, but bowed out following budget disputes and "creative differences". He was replaced by David R. Ellis. See more »
(at around 23 mins) An altimeter is shown inside the box with the snakes triggering the clock which opens the box 2hrs later. Altimeters calculate the altitude based on air pressure, and since in airplanes like this the whole interior including cargo area is pressurized, an altimeter would not show 30-35,000 feet, only 5-7,000 feet.

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 »
An Event you'll Remember, A Movie You'd Rather Forget
The best review of the film portion of this movie is from the Onion AV Club. It sums up Sam Jackson's performance as "done on his lunchbreak while filming a lesser degrading film". And yet, he's the best dang part of the whole thing. What this movie needed was more of him vs. the Snakes which never reaches the insanity of a "Dead Alive" and instead fizzles out in one of the lamer endings in recent cinemadom. You get snakes, on a plane. And some great B- horror moments that'll make you laugh, but this is not a cult classic. Despite people's want for a cult classic here, it's far too normal for that. Instead check out the aforementioned "Dead alive" (aka Brain Dead) or Tsui Hark's hilariously straight "Knock Off" with Van Damm & Rob Schneider. THOSE were bad good flicks this is one is just ho-hum.
On the other hand, the audience is hot for Snakes. As stephanie from salon.com says, if you're going to see Snakes, do so now with the packed evening screenings. People throwing rubber snakes, reciting sam's line and making hissing noises throughout makes for theme park ride levels of fun.
