If there’s one thing we love about summer, it’s going on vacation… closely followed by rosé. Thanks to 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment, we had the chance to celebrate both of these amazing elements of summer with a wine and paint night celebrating the release of Snatched.
If you missed it in theaters, here’s what you need to know about Snatched. It’s a hilarious mother/daughter comedy starring very funny ladies Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn. Dumped by her boyfriend on the eve of their vacation to South America, impetuous dreamer Emily (Schumer) persuades her cautious mother, Linda (Hawn), to accompany her on the exotic getaway instead. Though they are polar opposites, Emily and Linda must soon learn to work together and get past their differences to escape from a wildly outrageous and dangerous jungle adventure.
We invited over a few of our girlfriends and brought out some paint – and plenty of rosé – to watch the movie and make something inspired by Emily and Linda’s dangerous (yet hilarious) trek through the jungles of South America.
Though we were worried that our paintings would be kind of a hot mess like Emily (sorry, Emily), we’re pretty happy with how they turned out.
A blank canvas is always an intimidating sight – especially when you don’t have much of an art background – but we managed to bring some semblance of a jungle inspired by the lush scenery of Snatched to life. Check it out:
We also enjoyed lots of laughs while watching Snatched, which is the perfect summer movie for you and your girlfriends – or even you and your mom! It’s got a hot guy, Harry Potter references, a fun and surprisingly real dynamic between the central mother and daughter, and even some hard-hitting emotional moments… and, of course, tons of hijinks and humor.
If you’re a fan of Schumer in particular, you won’t be disappointed – the film is a great showcase for her particular brand of humor. The gags are consistently funny and surprising, and there’s also a very strong supporting cast in Ike Barinholtz (as Emily’s agoraphobic brother) and Joan Cusack and Wanda Sykes (“platonic friends” who prove to be very helpful and totally badass).
Check out Snatched for your next movie night! We’ll bring the rosé.
