TRAINWRECK review by Mike Smith
Having thought that monogamy was never possible, a commitment-phobic career woman may have to face her fears when she meets a good guy.
I'm not a fan of Amy Schumer, I just don't find her funny. So going into Trainwreck I was hoping that she'd make me laugh my ass off. Also, with Bill Hader by her side I thought this was going to be a laugh out loud good time........I was wrong.
The script felt flat and most of the jokes by the main cast (Schumer and Hader) aren’t that funny. It's sad because Bill Hader is hilarious and Amy Schumer is a big name in comedian. That being said, Amy Schumer wrote this movie, so maybe she didn't want to steal all the good lines so the supporting cast is funnier than the main cast. The supporting cast includes Colin Quinn, Randall Park, Dave Attell, Jon Glase and John Cena. Cena made me laugh the hardest, he plays a muscle bound, workout obsessed guy who says odd gay threats. I couldn't stand Amy Schumer's character, who believe it or not, is named Amy, lazy writing. Her character is terrible in every way and I couldn't connect with her, but that maybe Schumer's delivery.
Trainwreck is another flop for Judd Apatow which is unfortunate. There is nothing that kept me connected to this film, the jokes are weak and the sad scenes are mediocre. I had a hard time getting through this movie. Cheers and remember, I watch crappy movies so you don't have too.
3 out of 10
