Directed by: Jonathan Levine

Synopsis: Emily Middleton (Amy Schumer) finds herself at loose ends with no job, no boyfriend and an unrefundable trip for two to Ecuador, so she convinces her reserved mother Linda (Goldie Hawn) to go with her. Unfortunately the trip goes haywire when they are kidnapped.

Kitty Cameos: Linda owns several cats which are seen in her home. She is first seen feeding a tabby cat in the kitchen.

As she gives the tabby another scoop of dry food she tells a gray and white cat named Andrew that he blew it and won’t get extra food. She then approaches the cat to pet him as she talks on the phone.

After she locks her doors she heads upstairs and calls for the two cats to follow her.

Later when Emily arrives she sees an orange tabby cat on a nearby table and says, “Hello Phillip.”

Still later Emily is lying on a couch when Linda enters and asks if she’s seen Arthur. Emily points to an orange and white cat sitting in a chair opposite her saying, “He’s right there.” She then asks if he ever moves.

The cat actors were provided by Sue Chipperton of Check the Gate. The tabby cat who is the first cat to appear is named Turtle and was adopted from the Turtle Bay Resort in Hawaii where he was living as a feral. Turtle took to acting and landed roles on Hawaii Five-0 and this movie.

Several cats are also seen incidentally, such as the cats on Linda’s computer (she is reading an article entitled “How to Cheer Up a Depressed Cat”) and some kittens on a t-shirt Emily borrows from her. Emily also sees a photo of a cat in Linda’s old photo album.
