Several hours of unanswered texts and phone calls have everyone at a Christmas party wondering: where is Kim Bush? Filmed in Gulfport, Mississippi, and starring real-life sisters Courtney and Gabe Bush (playing themselves), “Kim Bush’s Abduction,” is a rolling mix of mystery and comedy, brimming with rapid-fire, overlapping dialogue, and a priceless supporting cast of gossiping Southern belles. Home for the holidays, Courtney gets dragged into a family drama when her mother leaves to buy a gift card and doesn’t return. As the situation escalates, the sisters reach out to their Aunt Nannie (“y’all, lock the doors!”), and then to others, and it starts to snowball out of control. The characterizations (accents and attitudes) are perfect, and the film maneuvers effortlessly and energetically through various modes of worry and sleuthing, ramping up to a hysterical conclusion. Directed by Courtney Bush, Will Carington, and Jake Goicoechea, who previously directed 2016’s Marilyn Monroe’s School For French Girls.
