So did I.
Interesting, the whole idea seems unbelievably cheesy to me, maybe I've judged it to soon.I don't really understand the phenomen surrounding the film. Last ngiht at Barnes and Noble I actually saw a book "Snakes on Sudoku, the Official 'Snakes On A Plane' Sudoku Puzzle Book"Maybe I need to see it, but right now I think it's just one of those things I don't "get"
I've not actually followed all of the internet hype. I've just known that it was out there. So I didn't go as part of the in-crowd. I just went because the blogger meet up was there and my husband thought I needed some mental distraction. As far as mental distractions go, it was a very good one. But I don't see it even becoming a cult classic, the way the filmmakers seem to be hoping. It wasn't campy enough for cult-classic status.
I'd love to go--oh but Samuel L learnign to .....at the end was classic but that would give away the ending...
I loved it. It's not great, by any means - even as a great bad movie - but it's very fun.
We have no interest whatsoever in seeing the film, but we get a lot of joy out of yelling, "SNAKES! On a PLANE!" at each other in our house.Clearly, we are deeply disturbed.
It's a farce! It has all the conventions of the stereotypical thriller...it's a movie about a movie...a black comedy. If you didn't get it, then you haven't seen enough thrillers. The perfect formulaic screenplay coupled with the most predictable dialogue makes this the best farce I've ever seen. Definitely historical and DEFINITELY a cult classic.PS...did anyone get the screenwriting jokes at the transitions to the 3 acts? SO over the top and perfectly sarcastic.
