Snatched Review

Very Good

It doesn't really matter that the script for this lively action-comedy is paper thin: teaming up Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn on-screen is a stroke of genius. These two comic actresses have impeccable timing, and throw everything into this madcap jungle adventure. Yes, the dialogue could have been a lot sharper, the story more coherent and the themes more resonant. But as a guilty pleasure, it's a lot of fun.

It opens as Emily (Schumer) decides to continue with her plans to take a luxury holiday in Ecuador, even though she's just split from her boyfriend (Randall Park). Although taking her mother Linda (Hawn) wasn't her first choice. As they settle in at the beach resort, they meet Ruth (Wanda Sykes) and her ex-military friend Barb (Joan Cusack), who warn them about gangs of drug dealers who kidnap tourists. Sure enough, Emily and Linda are grabbed by Colombian criminal Morgado (Oscar Jaenada) and taken to the Amazon, where they escape and go on the run with the help of a rugged but pompous explorer (Christopher Meloni). Meanwhile back in America, Emily's oddball brother (Ike Barinholtz) is pestering a government official (Bashir Salahuddin) to find his missing mother and sister.

Instead of working out a clever story or writing something witty, the filmmakers rely instead on the skills of Schumer and Hawn. This leaves the movie feeling like a series of random set-pieces in which the actresses improvise a lot of goofiness, which is shaped into something vaguely sensible in the edit. The overall narrative is flimsy at best, but there are hilarious moments scattered through every scene, and Schumer and Hawn thankfully underplay most of it.

Emily is left completely broken-hearted when her musician boyfriend breaks up with her in favour of a life of groupies as his band takes off. They were meant to be vacationing to Ecuador together, and she refuses to give up an excuse for fun at this stage in her 30s so Emily decides to take her slightly reluctant mother instead. She also wants to help her mom revisit some of the fun she had in her youth. Unfortunately, they find themselves kidnapped by a mysterious man they meet in a restaurant and only manage to escape with difficulty. By now they are in the middle of nowhere with no knowledge of their wild surroundings and they're definitely starting to wish they'd never come to South America in the first place.

Amy Schumer Buys Back Her Father's Farm For Christmas


Amy Schumer

Amy Schumer has surprised her father with a pretty spectacular early Christmas present – she bought back the family’s farm they lost over 20 years ago to bankruptcy.

The 35 year old comedian and Trainwreck actor took to Instagram on Monday (December 19th) to share a screenshot of a FaceTime conversation she had with her father, Gordon, when she announced the heart-warming news to him.

“Today I bought my father’s farm back,” she said. When Schumer was around 12 years old, the family lost their farm when her father was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. At that point, they moved to Long Island near New York.

Amy Schumer Renews Anti-Gun Violence Campaign With Her Senator Cousin


Amy Schumer

Amy Schumer has called for a “public outcry” on gun violence, encouraging people who want to see an end to the kind of mass shootings that make it into national headlines to join the campaign she’s conducting with her cousin, Senator Chuck Schumer.

The 34 year old comedian and actor initially launched the campaign back in August in the aftermath of the deadly shooting that occurred in Lafayette, Louisiana during a day-time screening of her recent movie Trainwreck. During a press conference on Sunday (October 25th) in New York City, she joined forces with her political relative once more to urge Americans to use all possible means to end gun violence, according to the Associated Press.

Amy Schumer Won't Let Her Haters Get Her Down


Amy Schumer Lena Dunham

Amy Schumer has been so high-profile in 2015 that she has perhaps sometimes risked overexposure, but the star herself says that the backlash actually began a long time ago, revealing that she’s been receiving death threats ever since the start of her career.

“I've already gotten a lot of death threats for about eight years… the backlash has already started,” the stand-up comic and Trainwreck actor said last night at the Elle Women in Hollywood gala. “I've been getting backlash since 2006. I've been getting death threats.”

“I know everybody is sick of me and I need to be treated for overexposure,” she said jokingly, but added defiantly “I'm not going to stop. Gloria Steinem said to me that the most important thing is don't burn out. She said we want change so quickly that it could feel discouraging.”

It was only a month ago on The Daily Show that Schumer told Jon Stewart about the friendship, which started when Lawrence sent an email to Schumer after seeing her movie Trainwreck. Lawrence laughs about that message. "I said, 'I guess I should just say it: I'm in love with you,'" she explains. "We started emailing, and then emailing turned to texting. We really hit it off, to say the least."

Trainwreck Review

Good

Amy Schumer makes her big screen debut with a script that feels like a much-extended sketch from her TV series. It's hilariously observant and refreshingly grown-up about sex, but the plot falls back on the usual cliches. Even with some clever twists and turns, the structure is oddly predictable. But the biggest surprise is that Schumer and director Judd Apatow ultimately cave in and take a traditional approach to romance.

As she does on her show, Schumer plays a sexually frank woman called Amy. Taught by her father (Colin Quinn) to distrust monogamy, she has indulged in a commitment-free life, rarely seeing a man more than once. And her one repeat male partner (John Cena) is a rather too self-obsessed bodybuilder. Then her boss, blithely demanding magazine editor Diana (Tilda Swinton), assigns her to interview Aaron (Bill Hader), a doctor who specialises in sports injuries. Amy can't help but seduce him; it's what she does! But in the process she realises that she actually quite likes him. This idea so rattles her that she sabotages her close relationship with her sister Kim (Brie Larson), who is expecting a child with husband Tom (Mike Birbiglia).

Schumer has impeccable comic timing, and she's hilarious all the way through this film, playing on her character's riotous way of being shockingly honest at all the wrong times. In other words, the character is entertaining but never very likeable because of the thoughtless things she does and says. So our sympathies lie with Hader, who gives an unusually layered turn as a smart, sensitive and very funny guy who just might be too good for Amy. Other characters are either here to provide emotion (Larson and Quinn) or to shamelessly steal scenes (Swinton). And Apatow brings in a usual stream of big-name cameos, including Daniel Radcliffe and Marisa Tomei in a clever pastiche of a New York indie movie.
