If it's campy and funny it could be a classic. If they try to make it into an action thriller it will be trash.

I think they know what they're aiming for -- one giant, tongue-in-cheek film. It should be good in that it will be bad, if that makes sense.

I think we all agree with Samuel L. on this one. There's motherfuckin' snakes on the motherfuckin' plane.

Edit: Shit... this movie's coming out soon. I need to start deciding if this will be the first movie I've paid more than a dollar to see in the theater since Spider-Man 2 (that I can remember).

I voted the last option but I think the movie is going to be good campy fun. I can't wait for the sequel, "Snakes on a fucking Shark" or the spinoff/ripoff "Snakes on a Train"

Should have went straight to DVD or an Saturday Afternoon movie on TBS or USA. I was pissed when I finally saw the trailer in theaters...Samuel L never said "Snakes on a mother fucking Plane". Poster is cool though.

Can't wait for "Barracudas On A Hovercraft" and "Scorpions In A Jetta".

This movie should have never made it to the big screen. I wonder who the writer sucked off to sell this movie.

The only way this won't be the best movie ever, is if Sam Jackson makes a movie called More Mother Fucking Snakes on another Mother fucking plane. Also, I just found out the director of this has done a couple of other movies. Final Destination 2..and the real surprise...Homeward Bound 2.

i read a short article about a ten minute showing.
in those 10 minutes Samuel L. Jackson:
Spoiler

For a while, i thought it would be horrible and we were all wasting our time, but now I'm almost positive, Snakes on a Plane will go down in history. Where, however, I have no idea.

Also, the better start with some fucking commercials soon

If you haven't already, skim through the Wikipedia article. There's some pretty interesting stuff.

i wonder if there will be an increase in attacks by snakes on planes now, like video games brain wash kids to kill people.

I dont see whats original about it they have movies just like it on sci fi channel weekly.
Those have camp and they aint making no money or fanbase.

The studio here is relying on hype its like 'were gonna make a bad movie were gonna tell u its a bad movie so you will know what to exspect when u see it so u can make fun of it instead of get into it'.

I dont think its gonna work even if it makes a lil at first due to hype nobodys gonna be buying the dvd if it sucks and thats how they make there money back.

I honestly hate how they're all ready calling it a "cult" film. Hollywood hype at its best folks. To me, a movie doesn't hit "cult" status UNTIL AFTER its released

When I was in High School a friend got a 100% on a D.A.R.E. test and they gave him a D.A.R.E. duffel bag. Two years later, a drug dealer that was a friend of ours at the time asked to borrow something to transport 2kg of cocaine in and he handed over his D.A.R.E. bag. He brought it back to him with an oz of weed in it as a thank you.

...and nobody watches it for five-ten years after its release.

Truth be told, the fervor for this movie *is* rather cult-like in its intensity as well as the reasoning (so bad it must be good).

I'm torn. I think the movie will be garbage, and thus best when viewed in a theater full of surly and mostly intoxicated loudmouths. But, I don't want to pay to see junk, so I kinda want to hear what viewers think before paying for a ticket, so I run the risk of seeing it in the theater, sparsely attended by mostly quiet folks. Like "Rocky Horror"; good in one context, awful in another.

If only the crowd is as boisterous as the hillbillies-who-evidently-had-many-important-things-to-say and were-proud-of-their-intellectual-prowess-when-they-realized-the-plot-which-had-just-been-stated-verbatim-on-the-fucking-screen, who saw "Pirates 2" last week when I went, then I have nothing to worry about.

Kinda hard to since most of the 'costumes' appear to be normal clothing. Unless you can get away with a Gap shirt as one of the cast members, it's gonna be tough.

Oh, come on...you're forgetting two important elements, my friend:

Snakes

and

Planes

ah, a voice of logic in the form of a walrus

OK here's a question, would Snakes on a Plane be a good movie if instead of Sam Jackson, it stared Bruce Campbell?
