Snatched is a brand-new movie starring Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn where they play a daughter and a mother who go on vacation together. If you think that the movie is just about a vacation--think again--because they get into trouble right away and have to use every trick in the book got to get safe, and remain safe.

The start of this movie will be familiar to anyone who’s seen a movie over the last little while—a woman gets dumped and her life kinda stinks, so she takes her mom (whose life also kinda stinks because she’s overly cautious) with her on a trip to Ecuador.

Action ensues when a handsome traveller tricks the pair into going on a scenic road trip, resulting in a kidnapping that pits the mom and daughter against dangerous criminals, the jungle, and some other stuff.

Snatched is actually pretty good. It’s rated R so there’s some top-notch swearing, a decent amount of comical killings, and even a pinch of nudity played for comedy—not eroticism. Schumer brings her shtick of directionless, sharp-tongued thirtysomething to the movie, which works because she’s really good at it, while Hawn keeps it straight-laced in her long-awaited return to the silver screen. I would’ve liked to have seen Hawn act sillier, but Martin Short was the straight man in Captain Ron and that movie turned out just fine.

Making a movie like this is not unlike attempting to prepare a fresh Southeast Asian dish: improper balance between sweet, spicy, sour and bitter, and you end up with something you wouldn’t even serve the birds. Thankfully, Snatched is well-balanced between goofy, heartwarming, funny, and dumb, thanks to a generally funny script from Ghostbusters scribe Katie Dippold. The story itself won’t win any Peabody Awards, nor will its structure ever be taught at the Harvard School of Film, but these things rarely matter in the goofball tradition.

With any meal, you want some decent accoutrements, and one of the biggest strengths of Snatched is its supporting cast. Even though their characters don’t really make much sense, a mute Joan Cusack and an always on-point Wanda Sykes are excellent, while Ike Barinholtz and Christopher Meloni steal every scene they were asked by director Jonathan Levine (The Night Before, 50/50) to appear in.

I’d recommend this movie to anyone who needs to take a break from the pains of everyday life, and especially mothers and daughters who haven’t had the convenience of enjoying a movie about their complex relationship since 1992’s Captain Ron.

Snatched hits theatres this Friday, May 12. Check out the trailer below:
