Trainwreck

Having thought that monogamy was never possible, a commitment-phobic career woman may have to face her fears when she meets a good guy. 



Trainwreck isn't as radical as I expected, it even subverts the formulaically feel-good ending implied in its setup. After all, Apatow has always been a pretty conventional moralist. Even if Schumer's doesn't have quite the range of some other recent stars Apatow has worked with. Her writing makes up for it. Amy's attitude toward her deep flawed dad is interesting as he helped shape the mess she became. However, Schumer is more than credible in this kind of role, usually associated with men, making fun of her character's distrust of love while showing how honestly she comes by it. I also loved the chemistry between her and Bill Hader, there are some relevant moments, like the arguing scene, moments that real couple could have. Plus, LeBron James continues the Apatow tradition of working famous non-actors into the cast. Fortunately, James is charming in the part: a penny-pinching Downton Abbey fan who is protective of his friends emotions. Indeed, Schumer's script conveys the story's psychological cause and effect without needing to express it in cliched dialogue and too busy squeezing jokes. They've achieved a right balance, while throwing some dramas in the comedy itself, some relatable things. The execution is a little different; that's where the drama comes in. I was impressed with this movie, mainly because Schumer wrote it, it just blows my mind. She got skills and that's always awesome to see it. 


Overall what you expect happen in this movie will definitely happen in this movie. But it's a good time nonetheless!
