Stand up comedian Amy Schumer was on the rise in 2015 from getting her own movie Trainwreck to a huge comedy special on HBO. As you can see I chose Trainwreck as the film for today it was directed by the amazing Judd Apatow (Knocked Up). Int he film Amy plays a woman who believes that Monogamy is just not realistic in life. So, it’s safe to say that she sleeps around a lot and she’s more focused on her career thanks to some advice from her dad (Colin Quinn). That is all about to change for Amy when she meets a good guy in the form of sports doctor Aaron (Bill Hader). Will Amy continue on her ways or will Aaron change her for the better? The film also stars Brie Larson (21 Jump Street) as Kim, Tilda Swinton (We Need To Talk About Kevin) as Diana, Lebron James as himself, John Cena (The Marine) as Steven, Dave Attell (Funny People) as Noah, Ezra Miller (We Need To Talk About Kevin) as Donald, Randall Park (The Interview) as Bryson, Vanessa Bayer (Despicable Me 2) as Nikki, Jon Glaser (Assy McGee) as Schultz, and Evan Brinkman (The Owl) as Allister.
I want to start off by saying that this is quite the movie folks because it sort of matches her brand of comedy. It can be really funny and raunchy at the same time. One of my favorite scenes in the whole film is Amy’s time spent with John Cena. That is some of the funniest material and I have to give it to John Cena, the man is a natural. The film is this wild journey of discovery for Amy who believes that life is all about one thing, but when she meets something great it gets turned upside down. She begins to discover that Love is a possible thing that people can experience when met with the right ones. The film is two hours long, but there is enough going on to keep your attention going the whole time. One thing I also have to say is that I didn’t realize her boss was Tilda Swinton. Tilda did such an amazing job as this bitchy British stereotypical boss of a huge magazine. The movie has all your typical moods of a romantic comedy film where it’s funny, has plenty of drama, and has it’s happy ending where everything turns out OK. This was definitely one of my favorite comedies of the year and it’s actually up for an award on my other blog site which you can check out here. Matthew Broderick (Ferris Buehlers Day Off) makes a cameo in the film along with others from the comedy world. Check out the movie, I am giving it an A- for a final grade.
