Is there any possibility that your next flight will be hijacked by dozens of dangerous, non-indigenous snakes? And if that happens, will Snakes on a Plane shed a nuanced, respectable light on what to do as a passenger?

Will Plane run the table during awards season? Will it even be at the table or in the same cafeteria? No, no, no and no.

But are there bleeperbleepin' snakes on that bleeperbleepin' plane? You bet there are, and you can bet FBI agent Neville Flynn (Samuel L. Jackson) will find the most theatrically ridiculous way to stomp them out before they bring the plane down.

Plane is a black hole of logic, reason and the fine art of character sketching. But it knows it, it's proud of it and it has far more fun with its limitations than any film you're bound to hear about on Oscar night. The best scenes belong to the snakes – who look eerily and hilariously human when on the prowl – but Julianna Margulies, Nathan Phillips, Sunny Mabrey and scene-stealer Kenan Thompson also star.

Extras: Commentary with Jackson and Director David Ellis, deleted scenes, bloopers, four behind-the-scenes features and music video.
