"Snakes On A Plane" (dir. David R. Ellis, US, 2006, 105 mins.) There are VOLUMES of reviews and p.r. and blogs and mash-ups and postings about this one. So, I'll just leave you to browse those. My FAVORITE is actually from my friend JimmyD. I couldn't say it better myself, but I'll just throw down a few words of my own.

Yes, it fucking ROCKS!

Samuel L. Jackson is all testosterone in this over whelmingly phallic, cinematic, roller coaster. He rides it by winking at us and playing it straight. He KNOWS it's all about the snakes! On the muthafuckin' plane! He ROCKS! Julianne Marguiles does play it pretty straight, but that's ok. Also, of some note are Kenan Thompson (an "SNL" semi-regular) playing a rap artist's bodyguard and Bruce James, who plays the male air steward. They cracked me up! (Bruce James is sorta cute, too! I've sent fan mail, like a smitten little girl. gawd.)

So, just leave any cinematic pretension at home and GO OUT and see this thing! It's about Snakes, dammit, on a friggin' Plane!

SCREAMS of TERROR!!! (Parrots do not appreciate the humor of a snake, much less one on a plane. Something primeval, I think.)
