In the comedy "Snatched," being funny is more important than story structure, character development and basic coherence but as long as it generates laughs, no matter how gross, that's all that matters.
As she did in "Trainwreck," Amy Schumer plays a young single woman whose life is a shambles. Emily Middleton has just been fired from her retail job, dumped by her musician boyfriend (Randall Park) and stuck with nonrefundable tickets for two to a luxury resort in Ecuador. With no friends willing to take the trip with her, Emily browbeats her safety-obsessed mom, Linda (Goldie Hawn), into going along.
In Ecuador, the Instagram-addicted Emily gets chatted up by James (Tom Bateman), a handsome adventurer who offers to show her and Linda the hidden beauties of the Amazon region. Too late, Emily realizes it's a set-up, and mother and daughter are taken hostage by Colombian crime bosses. They manage to escape, but have to traverse the jungle without killing each other while, back home, Emily's agoraphobic brother, Jeffrey (Ike Barinholtz), tries to spur an unhelpful State Department official (Bashir Salahuddin) to take action.
