Snatched

Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn (returning to the screen after a 15-year hiatus) are a daughter and mother who find themselves enmeshed in a criminal underworld in Ecuador. From the director of The Night Before, and writer Katie Dippold (The Heat, Parks & Recreation). 

After her boyfriend dumps her on the eve of their exotic vacation, impetuous dreamer Emily Middleton (Schumer) persuades her ultra-cautious mother (Hawn) to travel with her to paradise. Polar opposites, they realise that working through their differences as mother and daughter is the only way to escape the wildly outrageous jungle adventure they have fallen into.

Even a solid recipe like this can sometimes fail and it certainly has in Snatched (2017). Where...

An aggressively cartoonish mother-daughter vacation-from-hell comedy that never strays far from the fractious, one-note surface.

Can Amy Schumer play something other than a directionless, oversexed thirtysomething who drinks too much but learns a few valuable life lessons before the credits roll? Um, no.

It's ultimately as complacent, self-absorbed and clueless as its heroine, and not always in an especially amusing way.

While Snatched may be many things, comedy gold isn't one of them.

Often amusing but rarely shifting into a higher comedic gear, "Snatched" features fun chemistry between Schumer and Hawn, some delightfully goofy moments of stray hilarity, yet not enough story or heart to keep this thin tale afloat.

A fitfully amusing, entirely disposable mother-daughter caper that's elevated a notch by its gifted central duo and capable direction from Jonathan Levine.
