    SNAKES ON A MOTHERF*CKING PLANE YO!!!

    Okay, got that out of my system.

    This movie is critic proof. Everyone knows it's going to be cheesy, everyone knows the premise is ludicrous and everyone knows EVERYONE will see it. God the internet is great. To think that a single screenwriter talks about how great this thing could be in his blog and suddenly its everywhere. That's how all this got started if you didn't know, check it out here:

    Josh Friedman wrote War of the World and the upcoming Black Dahlia so he's not just some nut job, he's a great writer and his blog is genius!

    Anyway. The movie. IT DOESN'T SUCK!!!

    In fact it's a damn fine piece of B movie. Yes the plot is dumb, yes the acting is pretty weak (except for Sam, he's brilliant as usual) yes the effects are poor at best and in fact, it's not really scary. But it is hilarious, and not in that it's so bad its good kind of way either. It's got some great one liners, and the first few deaths are classics. And if that's not enough for you there is the scene that will be quoted from here until the end of time. The camera centers on Sam, the other characters are silent, there is no music, he sighs and then.... THAT'S IT, I WANT THESE MOTHERF*CKING SNAKES OFF MY MOTHERF*CKING PLANE. Hearing that, I now know I can die in peace. Do yourselfs a favor, leave your brain at the door and go see Snakes on a Plane.

    My final score ... 4/5 OSNN Stars. Like I said though, critic proof, no one really cares how many stars it gets.
