‘Complacent, Self-Absorbed and Clueless’ – Critics Pan New Amy Schumer Film


“Snatched” is getting scorched.

The new movie, starring liberal scold, gun control advocate, second cousin to irritant Sen. Chuck Schumer, and would-be big-boned Barbie Amy Schumer, is getting pounded by critics.

The film, co-starring Goldie Hawn, is about a mother and daughter who get kidnapped. If the reviews are accurate, nobody is going to want to pay the ransom.

The Wrap’s Robert Abele:

An uninspired, scattershot disaster romp that mostly serves the talents of one half of the marquee pairing, underuses the other half, and struggles to blend R-rated humor, foreign misadventure, and an oil-and-water mother-daughter dynamic.

A.O. Scott from the New York Times:

It's ultimately as complacent, self-absorbed and clueless as its heroine, and not always in an especially amusing way.

Owen Gleiberman in Variety:

Even if you do love Amy Schumer, you have to follow her into an aggressively cartoonish mother-daughter vacation-from-hell comedy that never strays far from the fractious, one-note surface.

“Snatched” currently enjoys a 43 percent positive rating on the website Rotten Tomatoes which aggregates reviews.

Earlier this year Schumer’s comedy special “Amy Schumer: The Leather Special” was panned by a majority of viewers, leading to an avalanche of one-star reviews.
