Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “After her boyfriend dumps her on the eve of their exotic vacation, impetuous dreamer Emily Middleton (Amy Schumer) persuades her ultra-cautious mother, Linda (Goldie Hawn) to travel with her to paradise. Polar opposites, Emily and Linda realize that working through their differences as mother and daughter—in unpredictable, hilarious fashion—is the only way to escape the wildly outrageous jungle adventure they have fallen into—trapped in a vacation gone very wrong.”

Movie Critics
…Amy Schumer’s new comedy movie is shockingly awful… you are going to be disappointed with “Snatched.” …
Jason Guerrasio, Business Insider
…largely unfunny would-be-comedy… too much of the humour derives from Emily’s insatiable appetite for booze, food and sex… [2/5]
Tom Huddleston, Time Out London
…This is not how you welcome a Hollywood legend back to the big screen. …“Snatched” is about as cheap and disposable as a tourist trap tchotchke. [Grade: D]
Kate Erbland, IndieWire
…Hawn deserves better, and so do audiences who are likely to find themselves losing interest in the kidnapping movie’s runaway plot. …
Amy Rowe, New York Daily News
…Amy Schumer teams up with Goldie Hawn in “Snatched,” but only one of them is funny. …
A.O. Scott, The New York Times
…this movie sadly is not any sort of comic masterpiece—far from it…
Peter Hammond, Deadline
…While I’m not a fan, I do have to praise Schumer for doing one of the most unlikable female characters in modern comedy movie history. You don’t even like her at the feel-good climax that—mercifully—happens within 90 not-that-funny minutes.
Gary Wolcott, Tri-City Herald
…“Snatched” is an incoherent let-down…
Wenlei Ma, [Australia]
…There’s a lifelessness to the physicality and a shriekiness to the humor. …
Christy Lemire, Associated Press Movie Critic
…a kidnapping comedy with very little payoff… reminiscent of the ’90s brand of slapstick cinema—absurd, amoral, where the thing that matters above all is the lol… bodily functions are endless sources of humor…
Megan Garber, The Atlantic
…There’s one extremely bizarre gag involving the manual extraction of a tapeworm…
Jon Frosch, The Hollywood Reporter
