Indeed. It would rapidly go from "Taken" to something approaching "Ransom of Red Chief" (with Toshiro Mifune or "Beat" Takeshi in the role of Red Chief). Either that or you'd have a group of kidnappers who, by sheer chance, succeed, realize who they've grabbed, and spend the rest of the story trying to figure out how to get rid of Kaitlyn and Juri without being cut into small pieces.
