Trainwreck Review

**********Warning the following article may contain spoilers. You have been Warned!*******************

Summary:

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

My Thoughts:

Trainwreck is brought to us by Amy Schumer who wrote and stars in the movie, her first big screen role jumping from the small screen. What this movie basically is a romance/comedy movie with Amy’s brand of humor thrown in, so if you are looking for some new take of the romantic comedy you will be disappointed. This movie is pretty by the number movie girl doesn’t want a committed relationship, finds a guy that is actually pretty decent and falls for him, has a fight with him and pushes him away, and then has a big make up scene. I am sad to say that a lot of the reviews that I have seen claiming great things for this movie is I think giving Amy Schumer a pass due to either liking her comedy and making the jump to the big screen. The movie is okay and yes some of the jokes are hilarious but some are just either flat or go over the top, but that is Amy’s humor. Even outside this movie Amy is a hit or miss for me she likes to push the boundaries and sometimes it just goes to far and no longer becomes funny.

Now don’t misconstrue that I didn’t like the movie, it is a good movie. And I have to say LeBron James and John Cena steal the scene when they are on camera. Like one of my other movie buddies has stated you will never look at John Cena again after watching him in this movie and he performs it great. LeBron James I didn’t know what to expect from him and seeing him play this version of himself just had me laughing all the time whenever he was on the screen.

When Amy’s comedy is on point she is hilarious and you are laughing so hard it hurts but I just can’t agree that this is the greatest comedy of the year maybe the summer but that is only cause there have not been a lot of great comedies out this year. On a side note the women should love this movie for the amount of eye candy Amy puts on the screen which is fair in my opinion since Hollywood seems to love using women as eye candy for most of their movies.

My Recommendation:

See it, if for nothing else than to see John Cena and LeBron James performance.
