He does movie reviews, too

It may sound like a far-fetched premise but Samuel L. Jackson manages, by the end of this flick, to get "These muthafuckin' snakes off this muthafuckin' plane". That is the line in 'Snakes on a Plane' which moviegoers are most familiar with and also drew applause from the sparselely-populated theater as we watched Friday night.

The film isn't a horror flick in the truest sense of the word. It tends to lean toward an action movie with an almost comical plot at times.

To outline 'Snakes' as many before me have, motocross biker witnesses murder, Sam 'The Man' saves him, duo flies from Hawaii to L.A., snakes are everywhere, duo lands somewhat safely in L.A.

Of course, I am leaving out gaping pieces of the action-filled plot but as much as rumors state that the movie studio wanted to make the film friendly towards families, the internet buzz backing the campy film led to the film that graces our nation's theaters today. Gratuitous nudity, teamwork, villians, David Koechner... 'Snakes' has it all.

"So grab your homeboy and go see the greatest movie of the year!"

This movie won't win any Oscars but it is sure to end up as a cult classic along the vein of 'Napoleon Dynamite'
