Snatched movie poster

Jonathan Levine’s road comedy ends the 15-year drought since movie audiences last had the pleasure of making Goldie Hawn’s on-screen acquaintance. Amy Schumer plays a recent dumpee with two non-refundable tickets to a romantic Ecuadorian paradise. So she decides to invite her judgmental, everythingophobic mother (Hawn) to join her on what turns out to be the tropical abduction of a lifetime. Instead of following in the geezer porn-paved footsteps of fellow unfrequented, quasi-retired Oscar-winners Jane Fonda (Monster-In-Law) and Sally Field (Hello, My Name Is Doris), Hawn chose for her comeback this R-rated, rough-and-tumble action comedy. What’s different here is that when it’s over, this mama is neither bitch, nor monster, nor burden, but a pretty cool mother. Further, Hawn’s exalted presence automatically forces Schumer to try harder, and together they generate enough laughter to justify the ticket price. It’s only when screenwriter Katie Dippold (Heat, Ghostbusters) takes her eye off their relationship and allows secondary characters — most notably Emily’s agoraphobic brother (Ike Barinholtz) and an Embassy employee — to hijack precious screen time that the film could have used a laugh track. 2017.
