Movie-A-Day #76: Snakes on a Plane (2006).

March 17, 2011

What associations does St. Patrick’s Day bring to mind? Maybe drinking, wearing green, alcohol, parades, booze, pinching, shamrocks, Irish pride, more drinking. But it’s also the Catholic feast day of Saint Patrick, one of the patron saints of Ireland. And, according to legend, he’s also the guy who decided he had had it with those motherfuckin’ snakes on his motherfuckin’ island. (Of course, he didn’t really go all “Snakes on a Plane” on the Emerald Isle. The fact is that snakes had never lived there, and that the legend is just symbolism for his forced conversion of the native Celts. But it’s fun to pretend.)
