MoFo Snakes on a MoFo Plane:

Yeah, we couldn't resist and hit a matinee today. And it's just what you'd think -- a fun ride, if slight and you really have to check all logic at the theatre door, but there were a bunch of funny moments. Yes, I am callous enough to laugh at somebody's pain on screen -- especially when it's TOTT violence and, you know, there are mofo snakes everywhere!

I emphasize slight -- as in plot, characterization, rationality. If you can turn off your critical apparatus, go. If not, eh. The cast is mostly competent -- the characters serviceable (one actually was a character). Not nearly enough Samuel L. Jackson -- although there was a point at which we were almost sure we were gonna have a Deep Blue Sea moment...but no. It's a kind of winking homage to seventies disasters like Airport and its sequels in a weird way.

My advice is to drink heavily (admittedly, that's usually my advice) then go with a bunch of friends.
