Summary: It's a stupid B-Movie with enough quality to fly by, and enough camp charm to get away with such cinematic crimes. The cast play it straight, apart from Voight. I'm pretty sure he was drunk during the shooting, coming out with an inexplicable accent and a look reminiscent of Hannibal Lecter.

Summary: Before there was "Snakes on a Plane," there was "Anaconda," a Hollywood B-movie from the late 90's that is as notorious for its mixed bag of actors as it is for the gruesome snakes that populate its plot.

Summary: An excellent movie. That's all to say about this movie. Excellent. It contains some of the biggest names in entertainment(Jennifer 'J-Lo' Lopez, Ice Cube, Jon Voight, and Eric Stoltz) and some actors and actresses going from good to great, just good, or not good at all(Jonathan Hyde, Kari Wuhrer,...
Summary: This is not as bad as some people say it is. Generally, it's pretty formulaic, but there are a few alterations on the monster movie format. A crew making a documentary set sail down a tropical river, on their way losing their fuel and, you guessed it, bumping into a big snake.
