The best part is that it’s not just a dub – some movies have two different versions filmed, one with t.v.-friendly dialogue. This is one of them. Samuel L. Jackson actually says monkey-fighting and Monday-to-Friday.
Comments, I LOVE watching Snakes on A Plane on TV too because of that. It’s really the best way to watch the movie. And that is easily the best line in the movie. It makes the unintentionally hilarious movie even more hilarious.
word- indeed, their is a tiered cable system where many channels, such as comedy central or nickelodeon, that are very much still adhere to the FCC regulations placed on network television. other channels, like HBO or showtime, are still cable and/or satellite channels, but you just pay more for things like that. the true differences between cable and network television here lies in our first amendment “rights,” and how the owners of these companies (the stodgy 70 year old white male who typically leans towards the right) choose to exercise those rights, expressed through their programming. and it’s true, comments@large, that they do record alternate audio tracks, sometimes during the initial filming for the movie/show. however, my personal favorite is when they so obviously did NOT have the foresight to do an alternate track at the same time, and poor editing makes it obvious. often, the one or few words will be inserted over the original track and the actor’s pitch, inflection, etc., does not match up with the original
@Word…we pay a ton for cable in the U.S., too. It sucks because there is nothing to watch at night except those damn paid programmings. I should stop being cheap and pay whatever the hell you’re paying for all this obscenity, dammit.
