A mother and daughter duo take a much-needed holiday to South America, but get more than they bargained for when a night on the tiles leads to their kidnapping in this action-comedy.
Free spirited Emily’s excitement for her romantic South American holiday turns to tears when she is unceremoniously dumped by her boyfriend.
Seeking refuge with her uptight mum (Goldie Hawn), Emily somehow manages to persuade her to take a chance on some fun and she agrees to join her daughter on her adventure in Ecuador.
But, Emily doesn’t just want to sit by the pool all day sipping cocktails, so she talks her highly-strung mum into a walk on the wild side.
Hitting some local bars, the unlikely duo let their hair down and begin mingling with the locals. But a chance encounter with a mysterious man leads to their kidnapping and mother and daughter must set aside their differences to escape their hellish predicament.
Amy Schumer (Barbie) co-wrote Snatched with sister Kim Caramele (Trainwreck), before handing the story to scriptwriter Katie Dippold (The Heat, Ghostbusters).
Schumer also stars in the movie, alongside the legendary Goldie Hawn (Private Benjamin, Death Becomes Her), who makes a welcome return to the big screen after a 15-year break.
