The TV Edit Of Snakes On A Plane Is Better Than The Original

So, the TV edit of the popular catchprase for Snakes On A Plane went from "I have had it with these motherf***ing snakes on this motherf***ing plane," to "I Have Had It With These Monkey-Fightin’ Snakes On This Monday-To-Friday Plane." Let’s go over this whole process.
This means someone was sitting in a room, trying to come up with a rhyme or something similar-sounding to "motherf***ing" and wrote down "Monday-to-Friday." Then he showed "Monday-to-Friday" to his boss and his boss said "Yes, that works." Then, Samuel L. Jackson, while doing the TV overdubs, saw that "motherf***ing" had been changed to "Monday-to-Friday" and read "Monday-to-Friday plane" 10-20 times, emphatically, into the microphone. OK, that’s all. I just wanted to be sure we were all clear that numerous people, including SAMUEL L. JACKSON, saw the phrase "Monday-to-Friday plane" and thought that this made ANY SENSE AT ALL. (I’m not even going to get into monkey-fighting. There are zero monkeys in Snakes on a Plane, let alone any monkeys who fight snakes.)

    I think the best I ever heard about was “I’ve had enough of your MICKEY-MOUSE BULL-SQUASH!” I was in tears.

    Thats not as good as The Big Lebowski TV edit I saw: “You see what happens Larry? See what happens? This is what happens when YOU FIND A STRANGER IN THE ALPS!” (wtf?)

    Good point. If this was a daily commuter flight than the only part that could be true is the monday-friday plane part.

    Those snakes may not have been fighting any monkeys, but they probably weren’t fucking any mothers either, so aren’t both terms equally valid?

    Aaaaaand we have a winner folks.

    I’m surprised it took so long for someone to do the obvious monkey/black guy joke.

    Bravo. Bravo.

    Actually, if you count Samuel L. Jackson, there is exactly ONE MONKEY to fight the snakes. LOL

    If you actually have your two senses (hearing and sight), I don’t see how it isn’t obvious to you that “monkey-fighting snakes on this monday-to-friday plane” is exactly what Jackson is saying in this shot. This is CLEARLY a reshoot. There is clearly no overdub. How do you know? Because 10 seconds later he says something about the “fu**ing windows” and it is overdubbed by “freakin’”. The overdub is crappy, disjointed audio and doesn’t match his lips. If the prior line was an overdub, I have no doubt it would be just as poorly done. For some reason they retook the shot with the “clean” words, but still left in an F-bomb in the next line of dialogue.

    Monkeys fighting snakes? Now that would’ve been a great movie.

    I too saw this last night on TV. Equally disappointing was them changing Patrice Oneal’s brother cursing rant from fuck em to forget em.

    HAHAHA I saw this on FX or some network channel. I wondered what the Taco might have to say about this monkey fighting monday-friday plane.

    If they know that something that “vulgar” is going to be in the movie, why even attempt to show it. . . Takes 2 hours of a terrible movie and they fuck up the best part.

    They left the other half of the best part, where he holds his “Heater” up in a menacing fashion to snakes… its like he is plugging a old spice commercial, only instead of a stick of deodorant its a pistol.

  16. Buddy Ice says:

    The fact that Samuel made this movie in the first place makes it very believable that he thought it was okay to say that line.

    On a side note, I was smart enough to not see this movie; why are there so many black people on the plane? Is this a mislabeled clip from Soul Plane?
