Director: Judd Apatow
Running Time: 2 hours, 5 minutes
Watch out, Mindy Kaling. Someone is itching for your spot of being the over the top, witty, pop princess of comedy. Better yet, Amy Schumer and Mindy Kaling should pair up and do a re-make of Hocus Pocus, with me as the 3rd Sanderson sister. My life would be made. Trainwreck is a hilarious introduction of Schumer to the masses, though many know her already from her several years doing stand-up comedy and her show "Inside Amy Schumer" on Comedy Central. She wrote this highly-anticipated feature film, got comedy film fave Judd Apatow to direct, and even convinced LeBron James to hop onboard in a supporting role. Whatever this chick is drinking, I want some.
Amy plays a 30-something single gal living in NYC, loving her casual relationships with men, not getting too close to anyone and indulging in whatever and whoever she wants. Her job at an alternative magazine is the closest thing she has to structure, and Tilda Swinton plays her boss - and she has NEVER looked better! (Unrecognizable, really! Out of nowhere!) When Amy is assigned an article on a sports doctor (the charming and oddly sexy Bill Hader), a plot not totally unlike "How To Lose a Guy In 10 Days" ensues. Only with a few more raunchy jokes.
