'''''Snakes on a Plane''''' is a 2006 high-concept action thriller film which also doubles as an Internet meme. It highlights [[Samuel L. Jackson]]'s desperate and heroic battle against some 200,000 killer snakes, all of which takes place on the titular "plane" (it should be noted that every snake on the plane was non-venomous, and in real life, the flight would have ended with a few minor bites rather than gruesome death). Based on a relatively obscure [[unBooks:Snakes on a Plane|Dr. Seuss book]], it was single-handedly produced, written, directed, and edited by Jackson himself.
   
'''Snakes On A Plane''' is a famous internet meme (which doubles as a film) that highlights [[Samuel L. Jackson]]'s desperate and heroic battle against some two hundered thousand killer snakes, all of which takes place on the titular "plane" and a strip club. Based on a relatively obscure [[unBooks:Snakes on a Plane |Dr. Seuss book]], it was released by New Line Cinema on [[August 18]], [[2006]] to highly polarised opinions. Although critics loved the line ''"I have had it with these motherfucking snakes on this motherfucking plane!"'', which was used by Jackson's character over fifteen times, they criticised the lack of comprehensive plot and nonsensical mixes of sex, gore and planes. The film is notable for building up a considerable internet fanbase, who were lead to believe it was a high-concept action thriller, literally depicting snakes... on a plane. However, after its release, its incredible inaccuracy was criticised, as every snake on that plane was non-venomous and the flight would have ended with a few minor bites rather than gruesome death and partial nudity.

''Snakes on a Plane'' was released to highly polarized opinions. Critics griped about its lack of a comprehensive plot, inaccuracies, and nonsensical mix of sex, drugs, snakes, and planes. The [[Internet]], on the other hand, loved it, and spouted Jackson's line "I have had it with these motherfucking snakes on this motherfucking plane!" about fifteen times.

Snakes on a Plane depicts the story of Samuel L. "Motherfuckin' " Jackson (played by himself), a [[black]] grizzled cop archetype known for his shameless use of the word motherfucker. Three days before his retirement, he is given the task of protecting a man in his mid 20's, despite Jackson repeatedly calling him "kid", named Sean Jones. Sean has witnessed a [[murder]] (which is depicted in full gruesome detail) and the murderers, lead by an [[Asian]] guy called Eddie Kim, want cold blooded revenge. However, they seem to take the "cold blooded" bit literally, as they load several hundered cratefuls of [[snake]]s and one or two guns for no reason onto the plane which will be flying Jackson and Sean to [[Los Angeles]].

Three days before his retirement, he is given the task of protecting a man in his mid-20s—despite Jackson repeatedly calling him "kid"—named Sean Jones.

While on the plane, some chemistry builds between [[R. Kelly]] and [[Paris Hilton]], who both play passengers. A few minutes after the plane becomes airbourne, the pilot is brutally assaulted - but not killed - by snakes that sneak into the [[Cock|cockpit]]. As he attempts to file a [[lawsuit]] on grounds of unprovoked attack, the co-pilot looks the other way and takes over flying the plane. Meanwhile, the snakes slither out of the cockpit and down the aisle, killing countless extras. R. Kelly and Paris Hilton run into an unnocupied [[toilet]] and begin to have [[sex]], but the snakes gain almost superhuman strenght and break down the door, proceeding to kill the pair immediately.

Soon, Samuel L. Jackson finds out what's going and pulls out a [[taser]]. He kills some of the snakes and builds a barrier of luggage in the doorway. He then gets all of the important [[actors]] out of the coach area, using the extras as character shields. More than fifty extras are killed during this process. Jackson calls up his manager, saying that he better have a coffin made of used [[bullet]]s ready for him, and then saying the iconic line, ''"I have had it with these motherfucking snakes on this motherfucking plane!"'' for the first time.

Meanwhile, the co-pilot wants a twinky, so he goes into the bowels of the plane to get one. While he is gone, the plane starts to fall towards the [[ocean]]. Because of this, the snakes break through the barrier and start to search for the least important character. Suddenly, a huge anaconda, codename "El Monstrato", decides it's time to [[eat]] someone, and consumes a middle-aged [[British]] man (although, luckily, he was an [[annoying]] character). As the snakes watch in awe, the actors are able to get upstairs to the first class area. The pilot, who has just finished conferring with his [[lawyer]], notices that all the [[blood]] is going to his head and takes control of the plane, keeping it in the air for a few minutes until the co-pilot returns with his twinky and takes over again.

Meanwhile, the morbidly obese co-pilot wants a Twinkie, so he goes into the bowels of the plane to get one. However, the weight of his massive posterior causes the plane to fall towards the [[ocean]]. Because of this, the snakes break through the barrier and start to search for the least important character. Suddenly, a huge anaconda, codename "El Monstrato", decides it's time to [[eat]] someone, and consumes a middle-aged [[British]] man with rotting teeth (luckily, he was an [[annoying]] character). As the snakes watch in awe, the actors are able to get upstairs to the first class area. The pilot, who has just finished conferring with his [[lawyer]], notices that all the [[blood]] is going to his head and takes control of the plane, keeping it in the air for a few minutes until the co-pilot returns with his twinky and takes over again.
   
Suddenly, the [[power]] goes out and Jackson realizes that he will have to go [[Basement|downstairs]] to turn it back on. His love interest gives him a small flamethrower and he goes down. He is able to get the power back on again, and kills six snakes with a conveniently placed crossbow, yelling ''"I have had it with these motherfucking snakes on this motherfucking plane!"''. Upon returning to the top, Jackson finds out that there was a snake in the co-pilot's twinky which killed him and the pilot after he threatened to call the local magistrate. Jackson gets [[piss]]ed off and proceeds to scream: ''"Enough is enough! I have had it with these motherfucking plakes on this motherfucking snane!"'' and shoots the [[window]]s out, despite previously saying that if a [[gun]] went off in the compressed air of the cabin, everyone would be killed. Somehow, the snakes all fly out as the passengers not only stay put and are able to breathe, but engage in a [[breakdance]] competition. Jackson then realises that the plane is still going to crash, however Kenan Thompson reveals that he has experience landing planes, or at least on the [[PlayStation 2]]. Nevertheless, this proves suffice and he lands the plane, allowing the passengers to start their [[Sequel|perilous, snake filled car ride home]].

==Thematic analysis==
[[Image:Snakes_on_a_plane.JPG|thumb|Note the highly metaphorical and symbolic dialogue in this scene.]]Snakes on a Plane uses extensive [[metaphor]]s and symbolism to communicate its rich and nuanced themes. As Jones, representing the western [[rich]], boards the “plane” of western [[culture]] and values, it's expected to be a simple and secure journey. However, snakes, symbolic for [[terrorism]], attack the plane, causing severe damage, and killing several [[Lies|innocent]] bystanders. Samuel L. Jackson, who represents the [[War on Terror]], responds with great [[vengeance]] and furious anger, far exceeding the [[corpse]] count of the initial terrorist attack. As the terrorist attacks continue, Samuel L. Jackson becomes more and more aggressive, to the point of endangering all of the innocents on board the plane of western culture and values to kill the terrorist snakes. Ultimately, his efforts would have no effect, because the pilot was killed while he was distracted by his crusade. Ultimately, by having some [[fat]] dude land the plane, the film is attempting to portray the importance of ordinary people in extraordinary situations.

==Internet scam==
 
Snakes on a Plane was famous before even its release, possibly due to certain [[blog]] posts and comments which adressed the film as a high concept action thriller with little thematic significance, reading such nonsence as ''"I can't wait for Snakes on a Plane!!1! It looks to be a generic meaningless action movie [[LOL]]OLBRB!!11!1"''. This assumption spread throughout various [[website]]s in a [[Internet|viral]] manner, and soon became an Internet phenomenon. When the film was released, many internet bloggers were no doubt dissapointed with its deeply thought-provoking content.

Later, it was revealed that the film's creators started this belief, leading to a considerable amount of [[controversy]]. Internet users felt "cheated" and that they had "been made to lower their expectations". Soon, comments implying that this deceptive nature of pre-release [[advertising]] was an experiment in the appeal of various forms of stimuli upon a mainstream audience emerged. Due to the popularity of the film before its release, this experiment is generally considered to be a success.

[[File:Facepalm2.jpg|left|thumb|A common critic's reaction to the film.]]Much was made of the aforementioned internet mania that surrounded the movie, even before its release, let to [[critic]]s sighing at what they predicted the actual film would be about, and various [[magazine]]s and media outlets reporting that this signified a dark new age of moviegoers dictating the content of movies; as if the idea that giving moviegoers what they wanted was tantamount to a horrible breach of moviemaking integrity. Thus, the [[great]]ness of the film was ignored, and Snakes on a Plane received poor critical reception. After that it went on to have disappointing domestic box office numbers, and reviewers gloated for several weeks - [[Roger Ebert]] said in his review of the film: ''"Snakes on a Plane is pure brainless [[insanity]]. I have never seen a more pointless, pathetic film."'' - and were then reassured that movies were still a bastion of dignified [[art]].

The film was in early jeopardy as members of the original cast, namely Samuel L. Jackson, had refused to film a sequel because tempers had flared during the shooting of the first film. Stuck, New Line execs resorted to offering Shawn Waynas Jackson's role. Unfortunately, Waynas refused, and New Line had no choice but to scrap the sequel. However, Jackson is planning to film it with his independent company, ''Mothafuckin' Productions''{{Citation needed}}.
