Now for the plot. Highly poisonous snakes are unleashed on an unsuspecting plane load of passengers by a criminal in an attempt to kill a key witness to keep him from testifying (could that sentence BE any longer?!!) If you want a serious film with a poignant message, then stay away from this film!! If you want pure entertainment, then this is the film for you. This film is full of thrills, screams, and just plain fun. It's not meant to be taken seriously. Yes, at times, it's totally predictable, but it was still well worth my entertainment dollar. Lots of times Saturday night, I found myself with my knees tucked up to my chin, clutching Casey's arm, wondering if the plane would crash and kill everyone or if the snakes would get everyone first. I don't recommend it for anyone with a phobia of snakes. I can also say, the fact that it was set in a plane that was in trouble made Casey (horrible phobia of flying) sweat it a little bit. In the very end, I had a fantastic time. I can also say that I'd be willing to go back again, especially with someone who hasn't seen it yet. When it comes right down to it, I was entertained. I had good company, good popcorn, and I left the theatre happy. That's what makes it a winner in my book. I say go see it and be happy!! Snakes also has a great soundtrack.

August 4, 2006 WASHINGTON – The Humane Society of the United States praised the U.S. Senate for unanimously approving a Senate substitute to H.R. 3858, the Pets Evacuation and Transportation Standards (PETS) Act, just before adjourning for the August recess. H.R. 3858, as originally introduced in the House, was approved by that chamber in May by an overwhelming vote of 349 to 24. The PETS Act, introduced in the House by U.S. Reps. Tom Lantos (D-CA) and Chris Shays (R-CT) and in the Senate by U.S. Senators Ted Stevens (R-AK) and Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ), will require local and state disaster plans to include provisions for household pets and service animals in the event of a major disaster or emergency. As this year's hurricane season approached, The HSUS had lobbied Congress and mounted a national advertising campaign to pass this legislation quickly to keep people and pets together next time disaster strikes. "The House and Senate have taken an important step in ensuring that Americans will never again be forced to make an impossibly difficult choice: leave their animal behind while they flee a disaster or take their chances by staying in a disaster-stricken area with their pet," said Wayne Pacelle, HSUS president and CEO. "We are grateful to Senators Stevens and Lautenberg and Representatives Lantos and Shays for championing this important legislation. We hope it will soon be on its way to President Bush, who said during Hurricane Katrina that he would be sure to take his dog, Barney, if he was forced to evacuate."To read the full artcle, click HERE.
