How to Experience Snakes on a Plane

Saturday, August 19th, 2006 · No Comments

Quite simply, last night’s Snakes on a Plane showing was the most raucous, fun, and wildest movie-going experience I’ve had in as long as I can remember. Probably ever. So I’ll get right to the point:

How to Experience Snakes on a Plane & Have a Rip Roarin’ Good Time:

  1. Assemble your snake posse (we had 10; I’d recommend a minimum of 6). This will ensure that the crowd will be energized, even if you’re the only group in the theater (which I doubt will be the case).
  2. Arrive early and meet at the bar outside your local theater.
  3. Drink a few rounds and, preferably, conclude your bar visit with shots. This will further energy your posse and bond you as a unified front. (I’m proud to say we did 10 for 10 lemon drop shots.)
  4. Bring a camera and have snake photo shoots before and after the film.
  5. Bring snakes (we didn’t, but many fellow audience members were well prepared).
  6. Cheer loudly and often whenever you see a snake in the movie, whenever there’s a reference to a snake, whenever you want to see snakes on a plane, and whenever something awesome happens (which is pretty much the whole movie).

The movie was nothing but pure fun. It was chock-full of great one-liners (“We’ll go down faster than a Thai hooker” comes to mind, and, of course, the line that’s made this movie famous for the past year: “I’ve had it with these motherfuckin’ snakes on the motherfuckin’ plane!”). You will laugh, you will scream, you will hoot, you will holler. The SF Chronicle gave the film its second-best review rating, the sitting clapping man (equivalent to 3 of 4 stars), and Mick LaSalle pretty much nails it in his review: “If you can find a better time at the movies this year than this wild comic thriller, let me in on it. I’m there.”

Everyone is blogging about and searching Technorati for Snakes on a Plane today, of course:

So what are you waiting for? Begin forming your snake posse and go see the greatest summer event movie ever!

(I’m not the only one who thinks seeing this movie with a posse is the only way to go.)
