Recently fired from her job and dumped by her rock musician boyfriend, Emily Middleton is determined to enjoy a previously planned nonrefundable trip to Ecuador. Learning of her relationship status from social media, her mother, Linda, tells her to come home in order to move on, where she reunites with her agoraphobic brother, Jeffrey. Initially refusing, Linda agrees to go on the trip with her daughter..
In this film Jeffrey (played by Ike Barinholtz) has agoraphobia (or fear of leaving the house). Joan Cusack costars in this film as Barb, but she also played Sheila -a character with agoraphobia in the U.S. television show "Shameless". See more »
Near the end of the move when Agent Russel take the gun from Emily he sticks it in his pants in the small of his back. But in a few seconds later he is carrying it in his hand. See more »

it's only terrible if you come in with a bad attitude
I don't know what the hell people expected. Saying that it's predictable or stupid, as if comedies aren't normally predictable or stupid. Snatched was no worse than what you normally see, and it was actually entertaining enough to provide some distraction. If you hate Amy Schumer, or if you think they are trying to force a political message, of course you are going to think everything is horrible; you went in with a bad attitude. A lot of people say this movie was "trying" something or other. But it's not trying to do anything. The characters are all stupid or weak in some way, man or woman, old or young. In fact, I was impressed how they managed to give all characters weaknesses without annoying me, I usually find stupid characters intolerable. There is no grand message, nothing much to learn. This is just a goddamn b- movie, and it isn't for a second trying to be anything else. If you are disappointed because you expected some innovative profound story, I think it makes you look more stupid than the movie. Production companies discovered 20 years ago that, while people claim to want quality movies, what they actually pay for is brain-dead movies that are easy to watch and allows a low maintenance respite from life. Especially when it comes to comedies. Yet somehow people are still whining about crappy movies, as if they are surprised each time they see one.
