A movie about snakes on a plane does not need to be straightforward; it only has a shot if it is either genuinely scary or so incredibly over the top it's funny. Snakes on a Plane is neither, but maybe Snakes on a Boat will be better.

Few studio-supported films match its B-movie nirvana of stupid-goodness. It's exactly what its title suggests and more ? the proof in the primal levels ranging from basic exploited fears to the crowd?s roaring reactions and howls of humor or horror.

A snarky genre exercise and its own late-night sketch parody, it parades nothing so much as the force of the public's lowered expectations

Although the film's production company New Line retooled the movie from a PG-13 to an R rating with ideas and dialogue from web fans, "Snakes On A Plane" is a boring ride.

Its genre elements are completely honed down to their basest elements and exploited for the most fun possible.

Even if viewed entirely on its own terms, this film, like any snake, tapers at its end.

Its trash pic spirit locates funny nuances of human behaviour.

With entertainment this cardboard and weightless, isn't a response like disappointment disproportionately complex?

Snakes fails for the simple reason that it is a terrible, terrible movie.

The self-explanatory title of this campy disaster flick represents a rare case of cinematic truth-in-advertising, because it's all about snakes on a plane.

I kept imagining the Zucker brothers doing this. Could there be a sillier premise for a movie than snakes on crack?

It's too bad to work as thriller, but not nearly bad enough to earn a place in movie infamy.

The fact that there's a movie called Snakes on a Plane is a small miracle. The bigger miracle is that Ellis's hugely engaging popcorn flick is nearly as much fun as the movie that was already running in our heads.

only gluttons for the tacky sub-genre of B-movie creature features will likely appreciate (or even see) this barge of filmic cheese, but for them, this is almost an all-you-can-eat buffet.

A solid little B-movie arriving cloaked in the dodgy garb of a fanboy phenomenon, Snakes on a Plane really ought to garner some sort of award for truth in advertising: It's exactly what it says it is and very little else.

Should convince studios that banking on computer-weaned kids to actually leave their keyboards to venture out of the house and pay for a movie was, is and will remain a bad idea.

One day, should the American Film Institute loosen up and offer a list of the 100 Greatest B Horror Movies ever made, David R. Ellis' "Snakes on a Plane" deserves a spot on that list.
