Snakes on a Plane

Saw SoaP in a half-empty theater with Daryl last night. [Has the Regal Battery Park City ever actually filled one of its auditoriums for a movie?] It's funny enough to see without feeling disappointed, but not as intentionally bad as I thought it could've been. In fact, it felt like there were too many dead moments and some missed opportunities to really send things over the top. That said, we still laughed at the movie, we laughed with it, we cringed on cue, we waited for the famous line that was reshot to make it R-rated, and it basically delivered what you'd expect: B-movie schlock. Oh, and there's a pretty funny music video that rolls during the credits by a group called Cobra Starship. But you don't have to pay for the movie to see it.
