Snakes on a Plane!

Yes, yes, we've heard about life imitating art, but this is ridiculous:

Vietnam has seized more than a ton of ratsnakes found aboard a Vietnam Airlines flight from Bangkok, the second time in about a month such snakes were found in air cargo to Vietnam, state media said on Friday.

The snakes -- scientific name Ptyas Mucosus and a protected species -- were found in more than 60 boxes that arrived in Hanoi's Noi Bai airport on Thursday, the Vietnam News Agency quoted officials as saying.

The point being that teh Samuel L. Jackson movie, "Snakes on a Plane", was not art, it was tripe, bubblegum that amused fo the first 15 minutes or so and then grew increasingly tedious.

So, err, universe? I'm afraid you've got to shape up out there. If you're going to imitate the cocaine driven maunderings of a screen writer's mind, could you at least do so with adecent script? Like Butch Cassidy or something?
