Trainwreck (2015) R Amy (Amy Schumer) has spent her whole life thinking that monogamy was not for her. Then she met Aaron (Bill Hader), and her world changed. I loved this romantic comedy with a twist. Usually, it’s the guy who is a cad and whose life is changed when he meets the girl. This film turns that idea on its ear as Amy Schumer plays a woman who doesn’t want commitment, and, in fact, she wants the guy to leave as soon as sex is over. Cuddling to Amy is like a death sentence, and spending the weekend together is her idea of hell. Then she meets Aaron and, against every fiber of her being, she starts falling for him. Hader is exceptional as the straight man in the film, and he and Schumer work well together on-screen. Lebron James is funny as himself, playing Aaron’s best …

We all know Amy Schumer as the Stand-up Comedian. We have been watching her on television since last couple of years and know that she is good at it. However, when it comes to movies, things change! – The award winning Amy falls slightly short of her comic-timing. While Amy tries to do the best she can, i.e. being funny, it seems that the script didn’t have enough room for laughter.
The movie starts on a good note and within few minutes the adults will realize how careful they need to be when they are convincing children. Parents will realize that you should not teach your children anything that would harm their future.
In the first scene of the move, Amy’s father excellently convinces his both daughters how divorce isn’t a …

My heart goes out to those who died and got injured at the Trainwreck screening shooting in Louisiana cinema.
The story is about a woman raised to believe monogamy isn't realistic finds her uninhibited lifestyle starting to wear thin. When her magazine job leads her to interview a charming sports doctor, she finds herself falling for him - and maybe finding romance is just what she needs in her life.
Okay I'm just going to say it, I never was a fan of Amy Schumer. I was never a fan of her work and to be honest I'm not such a big fan of her. I don't know what it is but these just something about her that I just can't put my finger on it. I only say I'm not a fan of her because I don't hate her as a person, because right now as I speak shes taking action on gun control because of …

I wasn't entirely sure what to expect from 'Trainwreck' because it's an Apatow/Schumer collaboration. Both are hit and miss for me. To my delight, the pair scored a win. Schumer's writing and acting are a great deal more mature than I anticipated. She infuses the rom-com structure with some new enhancements. Almost the whole first act is devoted to fleshing out Amy and all of the supporting cast. I enjoyed getting to know them. The family details are rich and intimate. They are essential to the driving the drama, as well as providing explanation for Amy's many flawed habits. The romance between her and Hader is handled with the same devotion. I liked watching the two of them together. I found myself invested in their troubles. The humor was consistent. It never stooped to …

Life in the Apatow house has been a little boring lately, hasn't it? With "Funny People" and "This is 40," the filmmaker lost some of the great energy (and humor) that made his first two features a delight. They just weren't that funny; they were so devoid of charm and heart, and above all they were ridiculously boring. That being said, 2015 is thankfully a great year for him.
"Trainwreck" is Judd Apatow's best and most ambitious picture since "Knocked Up" and could very well be the funniest thing he's ever produced. Thanks to Amy Schumer's heartfelt and utterly hilarious screenplay (as well as her strong contribution as the lead), Judd Apatow gets to bring his absolute best to the table. The film is very funny and very well made. It develops a strong realization and connection with …
