In her first movie role since 2002, Goldie Hawn reminds us of how much we’ve missed her as she plays a mom who goes missing in her latest flick. With an endless list of laugh-out-loud street cred like The First Wives Club, Overboard, and Death Becomes Her, Goldie proves her worth in comedy gold with another scene-stealing performance in Snatched.
Dumped by her boyfriend right before their vacation to South America, Emily guilts her mother Linda into joining her on a trip to paradise. But Linda’s overprotective quirks clash with Emily’s adventurous antics when she warns her daughter not to fall for some gorgeous man in a foreign country. Emily’s broken heart makes her an easy target, and mother and daughter soon find themselves captured deep in the jungle, all the while fighting with each other on how to get away from their getaway.
Directed by Jonathan Levine (Warm Bodies), this comedy of errors makes no mistake employing the hilarious talents of Ike Barinholtz (The Mindy Project), Wanda Sykes (Black-ish), Christopher Meloni (Underground), Joan Cusack (Shameless), and Tom Bateman (Jekyll and Hyde) as the love interest. And by pairing the irreverent timing of Amy Schumer with the effervescent charm of Goldie Hawn, a kidnapping comedy like this one is sure to capture our hearts.
“Snatched” hits theaters May 12th.
