Hi everyone, Bryan here…
There is a new trailer for a movie called ‘Snatched‘, which stars Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn as mother and daughter who vacation in the tropics together, but somehow end up “snatched” and kidnapped by some evil people. So Goldie Hawn came out of retirement to do this movie? It’s been 15 years since we last saw Goldie in a film, but I guess she is passing the torch to Amy Schumer here. The film is directed by Jonathan Levine who made ‘50/50‘, ‘Warm Bodies‘, and ‘The Night Before‘.
There is some talent here, but by the look of this trailer, ‘Snatched‘ looks absolutely terrible, despite the brilliance of Wanda Sykes having a small cameo here. This is also billed as coming from the same people who gave us ‘The Heat‘ and ‘Spy‘, which is awesome, but that is also the people who gave us ‘Ghostbusters 2016’, which was the worst movie ever made. If this was a sequel to ‘Snatch‘, I’d be up for it. As it stands right now, I’m guessing this will be on the ‘Worst Of’ list for 2017.
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.
Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn star in the new comedy adventure SNATCHED, which also features Ike Barinholtz (“Neighbors”), Wanda Sykes (“Bad Moms”) and Joan Cusack (“Working Girl”).
