A Preview by
The Dude on the Right

No movie has taken over the internet buzz since maybe “The Blair Witch Project” more than “Snakes on a Plane,” and I have to say, I am totally sucked in, and when I got to see the trailer before “X-Men: The Last Stand,” that really totally got me sucked in.

The title of the movie, yes, gives away the main plot of the movie, but pretty much the story goes that Samuel L. Jackson plays Nelville. He’s an FBI agent escorting a witness from Hawaii to Los Angeles. If you’re a big crime dude and this witness dude is coming to testify against you, well, you want him dead before the trial, don’t you? You could try and find a convenient time while he’s being escorted to maybe pop a cap in his ass, but that could be so messy, and what if you miss? Wouldn’t it be a hell of a lot more fun to put hundreds of deadly snakes on a plane and then release them at some time during the flight, pretty much ensuring the death of the eyewitness? So now it’s up to Nelville to somehow keep the witness alive, as well as the somehow get everyone to work together against the snakes.

As much as this seems to be shaping up into a cult movie classic, it’s the Internet stories that are taking on a life of their own. First there is the story that Samuel L. Jackson read the title of the script and signed on for the film without reading the rest of the script. Then the movie studio supposedly wanted to change the name of the movie to “Pacific Air Flight 121,” and when Samuel L. heard this he threatened to walk off of the project because the only reason he took the job was because of the title of the movie.

Then there is something usually unheard of for a Hollywood film, they went back to do a batch of re-shoots and additional scenes. Fine, that’s usually not unheard of, especially if a movie is testing poorly, but the movie folks on this one were actually getting worried that the movie might get a PG-13 rating. They supposedly went back to shoot more gore, more deaths, more nudity, more snakes, and to let Samuel L. rant some more, complete with the line that has supposedly been born on the Internet, “I want these motherfucking snakes of the motherfucking plane!”, or at least variation of that.

Anyway, this looks to be a great way to wrap-up the summer movie season. Snakes creep me out as it is, but damn, I’ve got to see this movie.

That’s it for this preview! I’m The Dude on the Right!! L8R!!!
