What's in a name?

For those of us who don't live on the Internet plotting ways to keep Chicken Little around a little longer on American Idol, I thought I should let you know about the latest craze.

"Snakes on a Plane" looks to be the multiplex hit of the summer. Even without a trailer or substantial official website yet, this movie has some serious buzz. So much buzz that NPR ran a story on it today. To really appreciate how sick people are for this otherwise probably crappy movie, take a look at this arguably obsessive fan site -- Snakes on a Blog.

Again, kudos to The Houseguests for having clued me into this pop culture phenom.

And if you have a lot of free time, watch Ultimate Showdown again to see (and finally understand why) Sam Jackson gets the smackdown by a few pythons during the second chorus.

As soon as this flick comes out, I'm RUSHING to see it. I'm rushing even faster than I did when Legally Blonde 2 came out!

I know I am really slow on the uptake with this one, but I love that you wrote about this movie! I know I will be in the theater on opening night and I pray that S.L. Jackson says at some point in the movie "YES THEY SESERVED TO DIE AND I HOPE THEY BURN IN HELL!"
