'Complacent, Self-Absorbed and Clueless' - Critics Pan New Amy Schumer Film

11 May 2017

Both Schumer and Hawn have a natural chemistry in Snatched playing at odds family members trying to work together and save each other after they are kidnapped for some reason since they are told time and time again they are too old or too ugly to be sex slaves or ransomed for cash.

That quickly proves a bad idea, as mother and daughter start bickering the second they arrive at their hotel.

Ike Barinholtz: "I was so excited to be teamed up with Goldie Hawn, and then I was told that part was going to be Schumer, and I was like, 'OK, I get it, I get it".

If you've noticed a particular lack of shine in the world over the last fifteen years, it's probably because comedy legend Goldie Hawn hasn't lent her comedic talents to a film since 2002.

In 2015, when Schumer was promoting her surprise hit blockbuster, Trainwreck (which grossed $140 million worldwide), she explained that the movie was in honour of her father. Hawn said, laughing nervously. I was so charmed by her.

In fact, things got so bad that there was a point when the sweet and bubbly star was close to a nervous breakdown."I really didn't want to go outside, I really lost my smile, I didn't feel joyful, I was scared", says Hawn.

"If you don't nurture that, and remember, you're done".

"It was a lovely thing to be able to share with mothers who have some of these problems - that we have a lot of power". The film also mixes wit with raunch, which is evident from the film's first scene, where we assume Schumer, who is confessing personal details about herself, is shopping with a girlfriend before it is revealed that she is instead an oversharing self-absorbed store clerk. We're human beings. There is, I guess, an elasticity to the relationship. No one should worry that women do that because it's just me. Linda blurts to Emily, hearing the initial invitation, and what's amusing is that Hawn makes us believe that Linda believes it. Even if the film could've dug a lot deeper, their chemistry makes up for much of its shortcomings. "I fly so much and I always think that if I died today, am I in a good place and would I be happy with how I left things with my parents?'"

Unfortunately, when proceedings get back to Emily and Linda, Snatched stalls.

The Snatched star, who is mother to Kate (38) and Oliver (40) with second husband Bill Hudson, said that monogamy is a "very tough order". And like every mother, one can only hope that her children are born healthy and loved.
