Snatched (15)

Action, Comedy

When her boyfriend dumps her before their exotic vacation, a young woman persuades her ultra-cautious mother to travel with her to paradise, with unexpected results.

The critical consensus

Not all the jokes land and the culturally insensitive tone is occasionally cringing, but there's a lot of fun to be had watching the supporting cast get stuck into the silliness and the two stars bash up against one another.

Your heart sinks when you see comedians as talented as Schumer and Hawn being fed such low-grade gags.

**(*)(*)(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 16/05/2017

A winning double act never quite gels in a fish-out-of-water road-trip caper — think ‘National Lampoon’s Gringo Vacation’ — that leans hard on its stars’ charms and very lightly on coherent plotting.

The gags are frontloaded in this Amy Schumer-Goldie Hawn vehicle, as humour takes second place to strenuous plotting.

***(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 18/05/2017

Slackly directed by Jonathan Levine, the film pays only cursory attention to its plot and fails to harness the considerable appeal of Schumer and Hawn along the way.

**(*)(*)(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 18/05/2017

Often just plain silly rather than funny it has enough sour one-liners and daft situations to generate indulgent smiles but you suspect they were aiming for belly laughs.

Goldie Hawn and Amy Schumer are a patience-testing mother and daughter abducted in Ecuador.
