Storyline

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.

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

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 »

Honestly it didn't meet my expectations.
21 August 2006 | by ritwickSee all my reviews

I really like thrillers and I was very excited when I heard of this title. The things which really upsetted me was the computer animations were not up to the mark. I mean it didn't look real. So many snakes all together and then a giant constrictor boa on the plane. You really need to have several thousands to show that number. Secondly They never tried to tell how in the first place somebody smuggled so many snakes in. I was hoping that Sam Jackson would make some funny/interesting comments. Not really it was mundane. The only good comment was at the end...."he's my brother from a different mother." Overall if you go and watch this movie, don't go with any expectations. P.S. the only other interesting thing in the movie was to see how the girl sitting close to us completely freaked out.
