When her boyfriend dumps her before their exotic vacation, Emily (Amy Schumer) persuades her ultra-cautious mother (Goldie Hawn) to travel with her to paradise, with unexpected results. While it’s great to see Hawn on screen again and the chemistry between her and Schumer is effective, the premise of the script is rather flimsy and the jokes come only in fits and starts. These two comediennes deserve a better script. 2 Stars (Chuck Koplinski) Rated R. 91 minutes. AMC-C, AMC-D, SAV.
