When hundreds of venomous snakes invade an ill-fated trans-Pacific flight in this action horror extravaganza, it's up to Oscar® nominee Samuel L. Jackson (Star Wars III: Revenge of the Sith) to thwart the twisted scheme of a deadly assassin to eliminate a key witness in an upcoming trial -- and kick some serpentine asps! Director David Ellis (Cellular, Final Destination 2) ups the velocity in this adrenaline rush of a picture with no-holds-barred performances from Rachel Blanchard (Without a Paddle), Julianna Margulies ("ER"), Nathan Philips ("Wolf Creek") and more. Giving new meaning to cold-blooded terror, the friendly skies will never be the same!

Critics Consensus: Snakes on a Plane lives up to its title, featuring snakes on a plane. It isn't perfect, but then again, it doesn't need to be.

Bloody B-movie spoof isn't for kids.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that the film isn't for kids. It features frequent jump scenes, with snakes falling or darting out of compartments or from under the camera frame. On-screen or implied deaths are frequent and bloody (man killed with baseball bat, shoot-out leaves bodies, many characters bitten by venomous snakes, producing swelling wounds and visible blood). A couple has sex in the bathroom (and also disable the smoke detector so they can smoke a joint), and are immediately killed by snakes. Infant and children are threatened by snakes; a little boy is bitten, producing gross wound from which a woman sucks the poison (leading to crude comment from observer, who also wants her to suck his hand). Characters chop and smash snakes. Characters use frequent bad language, especially "motherf----r."
