The ”plot” of Snakes on a Plane (as if that’s important) finds Samuel L. Jackson as an FBI agent flying a witness from Hawaii to L.A. when the flight encounters, well, you know. Jackson plus some iffy CGI reptiles result in a movie that defines the term craptastic. EXTRAS Director David R. Ellis admits to tweaking prerelease controversy by feigning a name change to the infinitely less catchy Pacific Air 121. The doc ”Snakes on a Blog” ostensibly pays homage to the online community, but mostly shows how Internet fans had more imagination than the filmmakers themselves.
