Trainwreck sounds like it should be the name of an action film, but perhaps it’s more apt for an apparent comedy which comes from the producers of Bridesmaids… a chick flick I have no interest in seeing, and which looks dreadful.
Since she was a little girl, it’s been drilled into Amy’s (Amy Schumer) head by her rascal of a dad that monogamy isn’t realistic. Now a magazine writer, Amy lives by that credo – enjoying what she feels is an uninhibited life free from stifling, boring romantic commitment – but in actuality, she’s kind of in a rut. When she finds herself starting to fall for the subject of the new article she’s writing, a charming and successful sports doctor named Aaron Conners (Bill Hader), Amy starts to wonder if other grown-ups, including this guy who really seems to like her, might be on to something.
John Cena, Tilda Swinton, Ezra Miller, Brie Larson, LeBron James, Marisa Tomei and… er… Method Man, and is directed by Judd Apatow (This is 40, Knocked Up)
Trainwreck is released in the UK on August 28th. I’ll be giving it a miss.
