Trainwreck is Amy Schumer’s big chance at becoming a big movie star. Judd Apatow directs from her screenplay, which follows a young professional lady working in the city, drinking too much and finally growing up.
Amy Schumer plays… Amy, a young woman who thinks monogamy is not possible. Her dad told her so as a young lass, and she took it to heart. So she drinks a ton, sleeps around even more, and has a good, happy life that is commit-free.
In many respects, she is in a similar or identical situation to many men in similar films (see Apatow’s Knocked Up). But she meets a nice guy and starts to have feelings. Oh no!
Skank has feelings!
But she fights against these new feelings (feelings are icky). Her sister, who went the opposite direction and got married fairly young, thinks she should learn to commit, as do many folks, but Amy is a ‘modern woman’ or some such bullshit (in reality she’s just a loser who can’t commit – it’s called being judgmental people. Judge more and feel good about yourself!).
The good guy won’t go away though, and she eventually falls in love and will likely have a revelation late in the film and win him back after blowing his best friend (Lebron James for some reason).
At least that’s my guess. Bitches be blowjob machines, yo’.
Who’s directing Trainwreck?
Judd Apatow takes on the directing duties for Trainwreck. This is a good thing I think. This is his first directing job in a while that he didn’t also write, but looks funny. There might be a bit of heart, but it’ll mostly be laughs.
But the writer matters too! Who Wrote Trainwreck?
Amy Schumer wrote the film and stars in it. If she pulls this off, she’ll be golden for the next few years.
Trainwreck Release Date
Trainwreck releases on July 17, 2015.
Best Actor or Actress in Trainwreck
Hmmm… I’m not sold on Schumer yet, so I’m going to go with Hader. He’s one of the better SNL cast members of the last few years, and his roles in recent Apatow films have been excellent.
Worst Actor or Actress in Trainwreck
Gotta be Lebron James. But if he can fall in to a character as effortlessly as he dunks basketballs, he might be a pretty talented actor. But Jordan will always be better. Actor, basketball player, Nike shoe salesman, you name it, Jordan does it better.
Is Trainwreck Worth Seeing?
Meh, maybe. I think Trainwreck will be funny, but I also see potential boredom. I may wait for Netflix to be honest.
Will Trainwreck make much money?
I think Trainwreck is going to be the big comedy of the summer. This is mainly because there hasn’t been a big comedy yet and there aren’t many other contenders (I don’t count the animated comedies). I say it’ll make over $100 million domestic, but less than $250 million total worldwide gross. In other words, successful.
Final Thoughts on Trainwreck
I think men should boycott. Women are taking all our jobs.
