The title of the movie Snatched may seem slightly naughty to some as it can be called as a female remake of the movie “Taken” in a comedy genre, but raunchy.
The entire proposition of saving the movie from the boredom of the viewers seems like an extremely difficult proposition and task. The story of the movie is as follows. Goldie Hawn and Amy Schumer play the characters of a mother and daughter who go on a vacation to Ecuador together. Their vacation goes wrong, and they get kidnapped and held for some amount of money as ransom. Liam Neeson, however, doesn’t come to be their savior and the two women manage their way out on their own.
The movie begins with on a promising note and Amy Schumer looks like the perfect choice for the role as Emily Middleton who is a resident of New York who loves Instagram, sex and booze and is clueless about her life.
Later the entry of Goldie Hawn in the movie brings a smile to the viewers’ face as her appearance on the big screen has taken place after a long period of 15 years.
We do not say that the movie does not have comedy, but the combination of side splitting comedy as well as throat splitting violence is something we would not enjoy.
The movie has of a cast that consists of all Columbian actors. Though it tries to deliver a message of maliciousness, actually the movie is mindless. It is just another proud staple of Hollywood that is filled with cloddishness.
Even the sharpest moment of the movie can be described as a wordless and physical comedy – it involves a mirror and a door and on the spot sensible use of female hygiene.
The movie makes reference to age-old jokes about tapeworms, scorpions, and cliff dives that are fatal and other purported horrors that dwell in the Third World. And as far as the viewers who do not speak English, sorry to disappoint you but you do not stand a chance at all!
Overall, the movie, Snatched disappoints the audience both in terms of sensitivity as well as nerve.
