Snatched (2017) Reviewed By Jay

United States, 10 March 2017


Jay´s Review

Why waste your (nonrefundable) ticket money for an exotic vacation when your boyfriend bolts? I know! Ask your ultra-cautious mom to come along. What could possibly go wrong?

Director Jonathan Levine ("50/50"), working with writer Kate Dippold ("The Heat") gives us a few helpful hints. Like maybe a kidnapping?

Their cast:

  • * Goldie Hawn ("The Banger Sisters") Linda Middleton loves her daughter, but she certainly does NOT understand her.
  • * Amy Schumer ("Trainwreck") Emily had her selfish little heart set on this trip and nothing will stand in her way...plus her ticket is NONrefundable!
  • * Wanda Sykes ("Black-ish") Ruth speaks the truth even when it hurts, and in case you can't tell, everyone is a suspect!
  • * Joan Cusack ("Toy Story") You won't recognize her so I'll give you a hint. Look closely at Barb.
  • * Tom Bateman ("Jekyll & Hyde") James looks too good to be true, but he invites Emily's mom to come along! What a nice thing to do. 
  • * Ike Barinholtz ("The Mindy Project") Jeffrey is agoraphobic, so he probably isn't the best person to call when you need help.
  • * Christopher Meloni ("Law & Order") I had to look this one up. I did NOT realize who I was watching as Roger tries to rescue our frantic duo; he looked like a low-budget Sam Elliott in a J.C. Penney hat.

Amy Schumer is involved so it HAS to be R-rated (language and adult situations), but it's such a treat to see Goldie back on the big screen I almost didn't care. Yes, make no mistake about it, this is raunchy (language and adult situations) and shocking (a couple of misfires that I didn't expect), but the screening audience was loaded with Schumer fans, so we heard laughter, laughter, laughter...
