Film of the day: Snatched

Amy Schumer in Snatched

The trip of a lifetime goes seriously south in this fish-out-of-water comedy.

Trainwreck star Amy Schumer plays Emily, an impulsive New Yorker recently dumped and stuck with a spare ticket for a two-week package holiday in Ecuador. She eventually convinces neurotic mum Linda (Goldie Hawn) to help put the “fun” into “non-refundable”, but when the pair are abducted and held for ransom money any notion of stress-free sun and sea is hurled out of a very high window.

Jonathan Levine – of 50/50 fame – is in the director’s chair, while the screenplay comes from The Heat and Ghostbusters writer Katie Dippold.

Snatched from Monday 11 September on Sky Store
