Trainwreck

Comedian of the moment Amy Schumer (writer and star) is a monogamy-free magazine writer who does alcohol and one-night-stands on a regular basis in Judd Apatow's comedy.

When she begins to feel some sort of icky romance towards the subject of her new article (Bill Hader), it begins to tug at her very nature. Co-stars Tilda Swinton, Brie Larson, John Cena and LeBron James as LeBron James.

As he’s done plenty of times elsewhere, Judd Apatow assists another comic realise their vision with Trainwreck, written by star Amy Schumer and promoting her from one-to-watch to must-watch status. Apatow directs with an almost invisible hand (one notable exception being his inability to deliver a comedy under two hours), leaving Schumer centre-stage throughout to hilariously dissect modern sexual mores, men’s magazines, and, more poignantly, parental/sibling relationships.

What makes Trainwreck work is that (Schumer) approaches every beat - funny, serious and in-between - in an open, undefended state.

Often extremely funny, even if it never approaches the radicalness of (Schumer's) greatest, most dangerous work.

Raunchy, funny and heartfelt.

In the way of most Apatow films, Trainwreck is a little too long, a little too shaggy and a little too conservative in insisting that all's square in love and war.

At last. Trainwreck drags the romantic comedy kicking and screaming into the late 1950s.

Its contradictions are obvious but its one consistent quality is its humour.

Schumer's performance is a tour de force of razor-sharp comedic timing.

While there are things to quibble with, there is also so much to like, and Trainwreck is still an important film.

A surprisingly conservative romantic comedy, based on Schumer's own script of mostly excellent scenes hanging off a very old fashioned girl-meets-boy framework.

Isn't quite as good as it should be -- it's baggy and long and loses its nerve in the third act -- it wins fans merely because it exists and for the welcome guffaws it elicits.

Interestingly, the movie is actually saved from a very average outcome due to its large and unconventional supporting cast.

At times it feels as if five different films are going on at once, but Schumer’s whip-smart delivery and no-holds perkiness keeps it all in place. Just as her director wilfully mines his own life for laughs, there is a whole lot of Amy in Amy.
