Consensus: Snatched has a pair of terrifically talented stars, but their presence isn't enough to compensate for this rote comedy's threadbare plot and scattershot laughs.

Alison Willmore
BuzzFeed News

An exhausted dead end for a type of comedy that Schumer and Lena Dunham, in particular, became famous for in the last decade.

Almost entirely laugh-free.

The Monitor (McAllen, TX)

A hodgepodge of wasted opportunities to capitalize not only on the comic talents of both women, but the story itself to venture off the worn path of lost-in-the-wilderness slapstick comedies.

In "Snatched," Schumer is indulged all of her worst tendencies.

Peter Travers
Rolling Stone

This mother-daughter comedy is flimsy for sure, but watching the dynamic comic duo of Goldie Hawn and Amy Schumer mix it up on screen is not be sniffed at. They're rock stars.

I think it could work better if they focused on the relationship of the protagonists, without even leaving the city where they were. There is a good subject, but it's wasted. [Full review in Spanish]

Snatched is a trip very much like the one it portrays: one that, in the end, does a pretty poor job of putting the "fun" in "unrefundable."

Richard Brody
New Yorker

Schumer and Hawn go dutifully through the film's paces, animating the movie with their mere presence while the best elements of their art stay in the closet for next time.

Butaca Ancha

An unintentionally political, racist comedy and worst of all: no laughter. [Full review in Spanish]

I like the leads. Quite literally, it was for them to make me not like them, and they couldn't do it. And beyond the leads were the supporting cast, and I… More

The main cast is exhaustingly unfunny, but Snatched earns bonus points for its great ensemble of side characters who provoke some genuinely good laughs.

If Snatched is what you expect it to be is that necessarily a good thing? Probably not, but if it's better than you expected does that make it a good movie… More

This movie is the normalization of trash, and Adam Sandler has finally been dethroned as the laziest comedic actor in Hollywood. Not only is Amy Schumer unfunny… More
