Initially, I was going to see Fantastic Four in theatres this week and then the reviews came out.. oh boy did it get trashed on. No Fantastic Four, no worries because I can now tell you that Trainwreck is easily my favourite comedy of the year so far and you should see it!

The story begins with a young Amy (Schumer), being told by her father the subject of his divorce with her mother through the use of her doll and he goes into the details of his extramarital affairs with other women in one of the funniest conversations you’ll see in the film. Fast forward to Amy in her thirties and she is with a new partner nightly believing as her father put it, “monogamy isn’t realistic.” She is a journalist in her day job for a celebrity fluff magazine that leads her to interview the love interest Aaron Conners (Bill Hader). It’s a quirky beginning for the two and it leads her to stop seeing the literal John Cena in her life and of his ilk. It’s a straightforward romantic comedy that we’ve come to know from director Judd Apatow, but it’s the journey and the vulgar jokes we see along the way that make it ok. Watching Amy go through guys is great, she leads them every time while they have no choice but to follow. Additionally at the heart of the film is the relationship with her father as he is not an easy man to be acquainted with and she also sees herself as an extension of him. Bill Hader is a good opposite to Amy. John Cena and Lebron James surprisingly steal every scene they’re in.

I hope you like Amy Schumer because after this break out role we will be seeing a lot of her in the next few years. She is a star and she even wrote the screenplay for this film, so here’s hoping she brings us plenty more laughs on the big screen.

All around this movie is great!

  4. Great decision in avoiding Fantasic Four, still haven’t gotten around to seeing Trainwreck, but anything is better than the hot mess FF is.


    1. I’m still curious about how bad Fantastic Four is, so I’ll catch it on Netflix down the track. Thanks for the comment!


  5. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this. I went in expecting to dislike it (went with some mates) but really enjoyed Hader and Schumer’s chemistry and Schumer’s script was top notch.


    1. Great! Yeah I was surprised to see she wrote the script herself. It was pretty amazing for a first film.
