Well… at least it’s not a remake.

From the IMDb News:Samuel L. Jackson

Samuel L. Jackson's new mile-high thriller Snakes On A Plane has created such a buzz among internet film fans, movie bosses have called for re-shoots - to give the film a tougher rating. The film, which stars Jackson as an FBI agent trying to keep a federal witness alive onboard a plane full of snakes, wrapped last September - but went back before the cameras earlier this month for five days of additional shooting. Film bosses at distributor New Line Cinema opted to add new scenes to the film to take the movie from PG-13 into R-rated territory, according to industry magazine The Hollywood Reporter. They claim the second round of filming became necessary after intense and growing fan interest in the film, which is scheduled to be released this summer. Among the reported additions to the film is a foul-mouthed rant from Jackson in which his agent character bellows, "I want these motherf**king snakes off the motherf**king plane!" The line is expected to take on cult status. The film-makers have reportedly added more gore, more deaths, more nudity and more snakes to the finished product.

Alex Says:  First off, it's always painfully obvious when a film intentionally plugs in some material to achieve an R rating.  If Crocodile Dundee had two scenes with Paul Hogan sodomizing crocodiles while screaming "fuckin' barbie!", it'd be obvious that those were an afterthought.

Based on this small nugget of information, I have no idea if the snake movie is SERIOUS or if it's some kind of tongue-in-cheek comedy.  Either way, I confess that it sounds so painfully, deliciously bad that I may have to see it.  You beat me again, Sam.
