The Best Snakes On A Plane Spoofs, Ever

Ah, Snakes On A Plane: A timeless tale of serpents, aircrafts, and Samuel L. Jackson. Given the film's ageless appeal, it's hard to believe the movie is already a decade old. And if time has told us anything, it's that there will never be another film quite like Snakes On A Plane. I mean, for starters, it's probably the most accurately titled film of all time. (Thanks to Jackson, who took the job based solely on the title — and said that when the producers wanted to change the name to Pacific Air Flight 121, "I told them that was the stupidest damn thing I ever heard.")
The 2006 action thriller, by the way, is about what happens when someone release hundreds of snakes on an airplane in a misguided assassination attempt. And as it's essentially a 106-minute meme, Snakes is practically made for spoofing. Since its release, the film has spawned a number of funny parodies. In fact, the parodying started before it even hit theaters. An outspoken and creative internet fanbase is actually responsible for Jackson's FBI agent's iconic line, "I've had it with these mothafuckin' snakes, on this mothafuckin' plane!" Based on the hype, the studio added five additional days of shooting after wrap in order to grant the audience precisely what it wanted from the film: More snakes, more sex, and more death.

Clerks: Snakes On A Plane

It's Clerks II! Starring... Samuel L. Jackson. This perfectly-edited mock-trailer — again, released before the film — features clips of Jackson from other roles in a mashup with the cult indie comedy. This is a movie we'd actually pay to see.

Cats On A Plane

It had to be done. The ever-demonized feline is the perfect serpent stand-in in this well-written spoof, which was featured on Good Morning America during Snakes mania. And even this certifiable cat-lady gives it two (non-opposable) thumbs up.

Barbies On A Plane

This parody is the epitome of "so bad it's good." Watch Barbie, Ken & co. recreate the movie in two minutes. The throaty "hissing," visible human hands and sloppy hand-written text cards are just part of the charm of this thoroughly enjoyable short.
