Snakes on a Plane

Last night, a friend and I had dinner and rented Snakes on a Plane. We both expected the movie to be bad, but it turned out to be far worse than I had ever imagined. Gratuitous violence, gratuitous sex, gratuitous stupidity--you name it. The acting wasn’t bad, really--it’s just that the characters were horrible. The actors did quite well for the script they had. The plot was atrocious and riddled with holes. (I suppose the holes were necessary for the snakes to slither in through.) And the snakes were the cheesiest computer generated animals I’ve seen since those awful wolves in The Day After Tomorrow.

But it was good for a few laughs, especially in scenes that should not have been funny.
