Saturday morning of Mother's Day, Sharon and I went to see Snatched at the Palladio Luxe Theater in Folsom. Although it is a little out of the way, I really like this theater.
The film stars Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn (in her first film since 2002's The Banger Sisters), with Joan Cusack and Wanda Sykes in supporting roles. It follows a mother and daughter who are abducted while on vacation in South America.
Although the critic's reviews were mixed, Sharon really liked the movie. Walking away from the theater, she said "that was a 9!" I enjoyed the film, but not quite as much as Sharon did.
I thought that the pairing of Schumer and Hawn was genius. Apparently, Schemer approached Hawn about appearing in the film. Coincidentally, I recently listened to a Bill Simmons podcast recently with Hawn's long time partner Kurt Russell. Russell talked a lot about Hawn. Hearing about Hawn in the podcast before seeing the film was a nice supplement.
