Trainwreck – 2015 (4.5 Stars out of 5)

Basic Summary – Ever since her father drilled into her head that monogamy isn’t realistic, magazine writer Amy (Amy Schumer) has made promiscuity her credo. As much as she enjoys an uninhibited life free of commitment, Amy is really in a rut. While writing a profile about charming and successful sports doctor Aaron Conners (Bill Hader), she finds herself actually falling in love for the first time — and what’s more, Aaron seems to like her too. Amy starts to wonder if it’s time to clean up her act.

So what do you expect to get from a film that the first words in the trailer are, “Monogamy isn’t realistic” and with an 85% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. A whole lot of laughs and maybe a crude amount of humor. And boy, did I get it. Amy Schumer and Bill Hader know exactly how to get those laughs and they hit each line out of the park.

Trainwreck, starring Amy Schumer and Bill Hader, deals with the ups and downs of Amy’s (Schumer) life dealing with a “freedom from commitment” life and perhaps learning that her life isn’t all that it was meant to be.  Judging by the title, you can understand my situation here.Train wreck had a bunch on nudity and sex scenes in the first 20 or so minutes which, if I have learned anything about movie watching, if the film has nudity, DON’T WATCH IT WITH YOUR PARENTS. The story of the film is simple to follow; however, there are times where you don’t truly believe in it. Now saying that, probably a lot of backlash is coming my way, but here me out. Amy’s character is affected by her father’s way of up bring here, but the problem is that it continues until her 30s roughly like she still acts somewhat childish which personally it can get bothersome. 

Other than that flaw, the film is beautifully portrayed out. There is great chemistry between the cast and it is well played out on camera. If I had to give it a rating, I would say I would give it a solid 4.5/5 stars. Solid film, great performances, something to pass the time on a Sunday afternoon.
