Snatched potrays Amy Schumer (right) in her typical singleton persona as Emily, newly-dumped and a spontaneous woman in her 30s who persuades her ultra-cautious mom (Goldie Hawn) to accompany her on a vacation to Ecuador. At Emily’s insistence, the pair seek out adventure, but suddenly find themselves kidnapped. When these two very different women are trapped on this wild journey, their bond as mother and daughter is tested and strengthened while they attempt to navigate the jungle and escape.
Directed by Jonathan Levine, from a script by Katie Dippold, and also starring Ike Barinholtz, Christopher Meloni, Randall Park and Wanda Sykes, this is the typical tired routine we’ve seen over and over again and really do not need to see again. Pass!
If you care, then Snatched is released in the UK on May 12th 2017.
