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.

Snatched opens strongly as it details Emily's comically pathetic life, but she soon becomes more annoying than amusing, and director Jonathan Levine's odd pacing causes the scenes to alternate between high comic energy and obvious padding.

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

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.

Leaving aside the not-very-cool politics of presenting Latin America as a place of deranged Spanish-speaking thugs, this film still can't find a comic groove.

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."

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.

File this one under wasted opportunity.

A old talent mixed with a new talent and the combo works for the most part but the film gets a little vulgar. Hawn still has it as the over protective mother… More
