Trivia
Darius Jackson was a stand in for Samuel L. Jackson.
Share this
The fake working title that was written on the clappers was Anaconda 3.
Share this
Contrary to popular belief, Samuel L. Jackson's agent insisted that the title be changed, because Jackson "couldn't" work on a film with such a title. When Jackson heard about all of this he responded with the much cited comment, "We're totally changing that back. That's the only reason I took the job: I read the title."

Goofs
The hole on the plane gets larger and larger, but the exterior shots continually show it at its first stage in circumference.
Share this
When the hole in the side of the plane, shot out by agent Flynn is first shown, it is on the left hand side of the plane from the pilot's point of view. This is further shown when the snakes fly out the window, as they fly out and to the left as it as shot. When the shot moves to the outside of the plane, the hole is now on the opposite side of the aircraft.
Share this
Troy leaves the plane first on the escape slide. In the next shot he can be seen inside the plane again coming down the stairs behind the crowd waiting for their turn on the slide. The DVD audio commentary claims that this error was known but not deliberate.

Quotes
Rick: You don't think I know it's hotter than hell in here? We also have abnormal vibrations in engines one and two. I had no choice but to throttle back.
Share this
Three G's: [to Troy, about heavy set woman passenger] You like that. Baby got back, front and side-to-side. Hey, y'all two get together, y'all might have, like, two 20-lb babies or something.

Neville Flynn: Everybody strap in.
