In Snatched, daughter Emily (Amy Schumer) and mom Linda (Goldie Hawn) go on vacation to Ecuador after Emily can't find anyone to take her newly ex-boyfriend's place on a nonrefundable trip. Unlike Emily and Linda, my mom and I travel together on purpose all the time, both domestically and internationally. Also unlike Emily and Linda, my mom and I have never been kidnapped on one of our trips. Regardless, it seemed like this movie was made for us, so we went to see it together.
1. "It's fine." Literally nothing could be less fine. 2. "We should get a drink some time and catch up!" I really do want to catch up with you, but inevitably we'll just run into each other again six months from now and make this same promise. 3. "I'm almost there!" I left my apartment one minute ago. 4. "I'm just getting one drink and then I'll be home." I will loudly slam everything in the kitchen when I get home at 1 a.m. and start making nachos. 5. "Your baby is sooo cute." All new babies look the same. 6.
1. The sheer stress of travel. Road trip? We'll need to stop every two hours for food. Long plane ride? You need to leave half your carry-on space available for snacks. Oh, did you want to go to baggage claim and get our stuff? Cool, you wait there while I find a sandwich. 2. When people start speaking to you like you are a small child. True, maybe you are acting like a small child right now. But don't people know that being condescending to you will only FUEL YOUR HUNGER RAGE? 3. Happy hour after work.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
