What’s it about?
A girl who’s just been dumped takes her mum on her romantic trip to Equador after she realises the tickets are non-refundable. They get kidnapped.

What did we think?
Elizabeth Best says: It’s funny how Amy Schumer’s latest feature film is no Trainwreck at the same time as being a total trainwreck. It straddles the line of gross-out comedy and high-stakes kidnap flick without ever truly landing either. Accidental violent murders are followed up with fart and dick jokes and the whole thing feels awkward; much like the girls, it’s a little bit lost. The laugh-out-loud jokes that DID land (a few courtesy of a hilarious cameo by Joan Cusack) feel like they’ve been snatched from a much better film.
