Snakes on a Plane

You know you’ve really made it when you are lampooned in popular culture. From the NYTimes review of Snakes on a Plane:

The filmmakers don’t overplay the political angle, though they do squeeze in a Middle Eastern snake and a scene of an F.B.I. agent sneering about the A.C.L.U.

Does that sentence strike anyone else as funny? What would constitute overplaying the political angle–the Middle Eastern snake declaring jihad and taking over the cockpit?

The review continues:

Mostly, though, what they give us is the chance to win, not with righteous morality, but with an old-fashioned swagger that says, much like the film itself, Hey, we may be stupid, but we rock.

Good. I feel we could really use a little more of that right now.
