Schumer’s character Emily drags her mother, played by Hawn, along on her vacation.
Just when everything seems to be going so right–Emily lands a hunk–things turn drastically wrong. The intrepid duo is kidnapped and held for ransom.
Jonathan Levine directs a script co-written by Schumer, Katie Dippold and Kim Caramele (Amy’s sister).
Co-stars include Christopher Meloni, Ike Barinholtz, Óscar Jaenada, Randall Park and our very own Wanda Sykes.
This is Hawn’s first picture since 2002’s “The Banger Sisters.” But she doesn’t miss a comedic beat. She plays the fretful, overprotective mom, who is cautionary to a fault.
In contrast, Emily is carefree and on the make.
The clip opens with Emily at the bar, getting propositioned by a hunky guy. Even she can’t believe it, at first, especially since there’s a gorgeous, busty model-type sitting next to her.
“Let’s go out tonight,” Emily suggests. “Hair, make-up, boobs, we’re going out!”
When mom balks, Amy assures, “Everything shouldn’t be so scary.”
“Oh, it damn well should,” Sykes interjects. “One in four tourists are kidnapped.”
Call it a foreshadowing. Emily’s hot boyfriend takes them on a backroad “adventure” and leads them into a kidnapping.
The girls will have to be pretty imaginative, not to mention fearless to get out of this one.
Check out the clip. It’s scheduled for release in May.
