SNATCHED (2017): There’s Something I Liked…

The trailer for Snatched, an action comedy about a mother / daughter adventure in South America had me a little hopeful. Starring Amy Schumer, Goldie Hawn and directed by Jonathan Levine, I was not as enthused by the end product as I’d hoped to be. There are a few unexpected twists in the story and a funny piece of dialogue approximately every twenty five minutes the I enjoyed but overall, the story is largely unbelievable and not adequately fun or executed well enough for that to not really matter. I also wished that the story could have moved a long a little faster.

You may watch Snatched and find it less disappointing that I have. Should you want an action comedy that isn’t necessarily completely believable yet executed in a way that makes the lack of believability a non-issue, try The Hitman’s Bodyguard (2017).

SNATCHED (2017): New Trailer From Amy Schumer & Goldie Hawn

Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn’s new  action / comedy Snatched  centres around a mother daughter adventure in south America and the following trailer makes it look good…

Fingers crossed that this is even better than I anticipate. I figure that I can be a little hopeful since Spy (2015) was great and some of the producers behind that worked on this. I’ll hold on to that hope.

Ike Barinholtz, Randall Park and Christopher Meloni also star.

Snatched Release Dates: May 12th, 2017 (US & UK); May 18th, 2017 (GER)…
