Dou­ble act fail to shine

Dumfries & Galloway Standard - - THE TICKET -

Snatched (12)

Goldie Hawn’s first movie role in 15 years de­served so much bet­ter than this medi­ocre ac­tion­com­edy.

You’d think pair­ing the vet­eran up with come­di­enne Amy Schumer would be a recipe for bril­liance. Sadly laughs are at a pre­mium as prat­falls, bizarre sce­nar­ios and wonky di­a­logue take cen­tre stage.

Sleep­less (15)

Jamie Foxx sleep­walks his way through Swiss helmer Baran bo Odar’s first main­stream flick.

He only comes to life when the bul­lets and fists start fly­ing, but the cen­tral sto­ry­line fails to get pulses rac­ing.

Cop movie clichés abound, although bo Odar proves to be adept at mak­ing us wince and de­liv­er­ing danger.
