Watching movies on TV is not the same as watching them on DVDs. There’s always the pesky editing that tries to fit commercials into your beloved film. When it comes to curse words, the censors usually have some pretty interesting ways to clean up the scene, but this TV censor of Snakes on a Plane is just ridiculous.
Instead of Samuel L. Jackson cursing up a storm, the editors had him say some rather colourful lines instead. Apparently he’s tired of “these monkey fighting snakes on this Monday to Friday plane.”
Two things: first, I immediately started questioning who would win in a fight between a monkey and a snake. I have my money on the monkey seeing as they have experience in flinging things. Secondly, does this plane only fly Monday to Friday? What happened to Saturday and Sunday?
On the bright side, since the film is pretty bad, I guess it made it a bit more interesting to watch in the end.
