Snatched (2017)


Amy Schumer
Goldie Hawn

Directed by Jonathan Levine

Snatched is crap.
The movie rests on the borderline between boring and out of place. Nothing in the entire eighty minutes that I watched it is worth noting and for a film made fifteen years after Goldie Hawn did her last, I wish she just remained far away from this.

I like Goldie from The First Wives Club (1996) and The Out-of-Towners (1999) even though she was much younger in those movies in comparison to her seventy-one-year-old self in this one, she gave a performance worth noting her ability to deliver. The problem was the script was crap even though her deliver was not.
I liked seeing her Goldie glow and the smile I always cherished, I guess there are somethings age cannot take away from you and I’m glad she got recognized this year in the Hollywood Walk of Fame. I just wished the movie that followed this prestigious award was far better, funnier and even worth seeing again for the second time.

Snatched is forgettable, every minute of the movie is too far-fetched to be taken seriously and too dumb or stupid to be even worth remembering.
The worse part for me is when the character’s names were mentioned, I found myself saying, “oh! Yeah that’s her name.”

Not even the presence of Wanda Sykes or a pip at Amy Schumer nipples could do anything to make this movie good. The movie had for it, bad directing in the part of Jonathan Levine who has done better when I recall 50/50 (2011) or Warm Bodies (2013). This supposed to be an action comedy and a kind of female buddy movie, this movie picked up slow and even when the events that were supposed to take you by either surprise or make you sit up start happening, you will probably just stay flat.

The movie script was lame and the character Amy Schumer played reminded me of Sandra Bullock’s obscene, silly and down on herself character in Miss Congeniality 2 (2005) when her boyfriend broke up with her.
I love Sandra Bullock and even liked Miss Congeniality 2 (2005) even though it is nothing compared to the first one Miss Congeniality (2000).
In the case of Snatched, I do not see it making back its money from the box office like both Miss Congeniality movies did.

The movie is about a mother and daughter who went to Ecuador for the holidays.
While there, Emily (Amy Schumer) met a man who invited her and her mother Linda (Goldie Hawn) on a drive to explore the town.
What was supposed to be a drive ended up being a setup to be kidnapped.

Both now kidnapped and stuck in another country must find a way to get away from their kidnappers and make it to the Embassy.

Don’t waste your time.
