Snakes on a Plane

Snakes on a plane stands out as an example of camp to me because of its “good because its awful” type of popularity. The film has aesthetic stylization in that it satirizes its own premise. Samuel L Jackson’s demand that the working title be left alone gives it an absurdity that another title would not. This absurdity gives it popularity while making it an example of camp.
