Rated - R
Schumer has a huge following, thanks to her Comedy Central Show “Inside Amy Schumer” . In Trainwreck, it’s hard to tell where the real Amy ends, and this fictional character begins.
This movie takes less than a minute to get it's first
laugh, and never slows down. In the opening scene,
two young girl listen as their Dad uses doll analogies
to explain why he is leaving their mom, and why
monogamy isn't real. Fast forward 20 years and we
see just how much Amy listened to her Dad.
Spending her weekends getting drunk, smoking pot
and hooking up with one night stands she is a "hot mess".
The entire cast has great chemistry - and they all deliver the laughs. John Cena has several "sexy?" scenes and of course we all fall in love with Aaron, played by the brilliant Bill Hader. It took me a solid hour to figure out the actress playing her boss was none other than Tilda Swinton. But it was LeBron James who stole the show for me. James plays himself in the film, a patient and over-protective friend to lovable Aaron. He was quite charming.
While Trainwreck was as funny as it gets, there is a serious undertone to the movie that sets Amy Schumer apart as an actress. She handled drama like a pro. My prediction? We will be seeing a lot more of Amy Schumer, and that makes me a happy girl.
