Snakes on a Plane could be pointed to as a prime example of 'not messing about'.

To quote a famous slogan, it does exactly what it says on the tin.

There's snakes. They are on a plane. That's what you've signed up for.

Samuel L Jackson's character's only memorable quote from the movie is:

I have had it with these motherf---ing snakes on this motherf---ing plane!

You know where you stand with that film.

A recent Reddit thread discussed what other films would be titled if they followed the example of Snakes on a Plane and were as literal as possible.

We've mocked up a few of the suggestions into posters:

1. Jurassic Park/Jurassic World
