Few funny scenes make ‘Snatched’ somewhat worthwhile

   May 15, 2017   

A singular pleasure to be derived from this movie is the chance to see Goldie Hawn.

Goldie Hawn has been absent from the screen for a decade or so. She is older now, but she still has a delightful, charming beauty, with a bubbly personality to match and a winning smile.
