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.

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

it was the best of times, it was the worst of times.

Its trash pic spirit locates funny nuances of human behaviour.

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

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.

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.

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.

All those CGI snakes can be quite shudder-inducing. But there is also something cheerfully ridiculous in the way the film switches to rubber snakes for hand-to-hand combat.

Has the thinnest imaginable premise (see the title) and yet manages to be more fun than most big-budget summer blockbusters.

All very well, but it is by no means the giddy delight that the fans hoped for.
