That hundreds of poisonous Snakes will be able to co-oexist peacefully in a tightly enclosed space to reach a common goal?  Its amazing the things that movie-makers will try to get us to believe.

For one thing, Snakes are solitary and very territorial animals.  The only time they gather together is when mating and even that is often competetive.  Let me ask you guys: when you're in the Arizona desert and you encounter a rattle snake, is it alone or in a group?  Alone of course!  

In reality if you tried to gather hundreds of poisonous snakes and pack them into a plane, they will kill each other first.  

Oh and I guess the makers of SoAP were on a very tight budget.  All the snakes in the movie were very obviously CGI and not good quality CGI.  I guess real snakes and animal trainers weren't in the budget.

You've obviously never seen RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK, recently dubbed the perfect Bad Movie, as an example of snakes living together for millenia for a common purpose.

LOL, Oh c'mon now.  You guys can come up with better arguments than this.

Yes, I have seen ROTLA.  That pit was filled with nonvenomous snakes and it wouldn't have stayed that way for millennia.  But the one plausibility problem in that movie that really makes me shake my head is the Fact Harrison Ford managed to outrun a massive round boulder rolling towards him at 80 mph.

I don't think they expect us to believe anything, that's not the point of the movie so why argue about it one way or the other?

Still trying to take this movie down all by yourself? The hype hasn't translated into box office, too many of the bloogers and Internet fans in Middle America were too young to get into an R rated film seems to be the theory according to a column in the Hollywood Reporter (yeah right, we found a way in when I was under age and the kids are still at it now). But it'll clean up on home video. And a year from now people will have forgotten it, and will be loving or ripping apart some other overhyped cynical product of the Hollywood film machine.

Arguing over the plausibility of a movie that is willfully thumbing it nose at plausiblity is pointless. Let it go, there are much better windmills to tilt at.

Well,it looks alot better than RATTLERS(1975)which was a really,REALLY,lousy,boring,waste of time.I will take an unreal,fun movie over a boring unreal movie anyday.And if movies were meant to reflect reality,why not sit on the porch and watch traffic go by?It's like comparing the drone of awashing machine to music...the latter is much more interesting.

Apparently, you haven't listened to any of these new "Noise Artists".
At least a washing machine has rhythm.
Then again, we propably don't want to go & give those guys any ideas.
