After he escorts her to a nighttime forest bacchanale of drinking, dancing and Capoeira, he offers to take Emily and her mom on a culture-expanding excursion the next day.
The trip is a trap, however, and the women are summarily kidnapped, thrown into a dingy cell, and held for ransom by a ruthless sort named Morgado (Oscar Jaenada), who — if we’re keeping tabs on Hollywood’s representation of foreign lands — is the first native character, and one of the only ones, with more than three lines.
The first is a snicker-worthy if tepid urban dating comedy that could just as easily have been a chunk on “Inside Amy Schumer.” As self-centered Emily, fired from her retail job and dumped by her disengaged rock n’ roll boyfriend (Randall Park) right before their planned vacation to Ecuador, Schumer is in familiar territory here, mining social embarrassment and misplaced ambition for queasy laughs.
A onetime wild girl forced to become a single mom, Linda (Hawn) is now a cheery shut-in with lots of cats, an agoraphobic manboy for a live-in son (Ike Barinholtz), and a fear of what lies outside her suburban home.
Emily hasn’t always been on the best of terms with her, but desperate for a South American plus-one, she begs her mom to go, and in the interest of repairing a fractured relationship, Linda accepts.
The Amy Schumer-Goldie Hawn comedy “Snatched” should really be called “Amy and Goldie Go to Ecuador” and be one in a churned-out series like the “Blondie” movies of the 1940s.
That kind of context might help this sloppy, fitfully funny trifle go down easier than it does now, shouldering the mantle of summer event comedy, eagerly awaited follow-up to Schumer’s breakout hit “Trainwreck,” and return after a 15-year multiplex hiatus for screen legend Goldie Hawn.
