SIT BACK. RELAX. ENJOY THE FRIGHT.
FBI agent Nelville Flynn (Samuel L. Jackson) is escorting a witness to a mob murder on a plane bound for L.A… but it is loaded with hundreds of poisonous snakes that are high on pheromones. Perhaps the first non-franchise movie to have become a phenomenon before anyone even saw it, the title basically says it all. The filmmakers show a slightly cruel streak in their depiction of passengers being killed by the snakes, but the movie as a whole is tongue-in-cheek. Just make sure to check logic at the door and let the brainless fun commence. Jackson plays it (mostly) straight and his authority is a welcome ingredient.
