Let’s talk about the title for a moment, which is either one of the best or one of the worst titles for a movie. You can decide. I feel that there is something to its simple descriptive quality. It should be pretty obvious what you are going to get from the film – a potent mix of deadly snakes and an airplane full of people. After that, you tend to instinctively imagine the worst. The secret probably lies in the combination of those two words “plane” and “snakes,” both of which relate back to our basic human fears of flying and, well, venom (or teeth, or death). I think it’s brilliant. Variety reports that this film has been getting incredible buzz since the summer of 2005, when it was first announced. It has been one of the most anticipated releases of 2006, despite zero advertising. Everything thanks to the inspired title. Apparently, websites have already been devoted to the film and have even developed a phrase out of the title. “Snakes on a Plane” is meant to describe a situation that has gotten so bad that it is uncontrollable. For example: “Ever since I forgot about the big project, my relationship with my boss is like ‘snakes on a plane.’” All this leads to only one conclusion: the film should manage to rake in a healthy amount of money once it comes out.
