“What if I told you there was only one doll you could play with forever?” Those were the words Amy (Amy Schumer) and her younger sister Kim (Brie Larson) heard from their absentee father played by Colin Quinn explaining to them why monogamy sucks. Those words would go on to shape Amy’s adult love life in the movie Trainwreck written by Schumer and directed by Judd Apatow.
When we catch up to adult Amy she has taken her father’s advice literally, her love life consists of nothing but one night stands that she has to be drunk to make it through. She does have a main bae who she goes on regular movie dates with played by WWE SuperstarJohn Cena who has no idea Amy sleeps around.
Even though he has all that muscle, he still somehow manages to come off gay with lines like “I wanted you to be my Crossfit Queen”saddened when Amy ended their “relationship”. The two even engage in what might be one of the funniest sex scenes ever with Cena delivering the worst bedroom lingo ever. In between her one night stands Amy does have a job, she works as a writer at a men’s magazine hysterically named S’Nuff. Her boss played by Tilda Swinton makes a living off pitching misogynistic stories for them to write about. She throws Amy a curve-ball when she tasks her to write a story on Aaron Conners (Bill Hader) a world renown sports surgeon.
Amy’s younger sister Kim is the exact opposite of her as an adult, she’s married and has a stepson (Evan Brinkman) with her husband played by Mike Birbigila. Amy takes every chance she gets to make fun of Kim’s corny husband and her well-mannered stepson who Amy jokes could be gay.
Amy isn’t into sports, and expresses how much she hates them, knowing that revelation her boss thinks she can bring a certain uniqueness to the story she has to write on Aaron originally pitched by her fellow writer.
The two instantly hit it off, Amy looks to just make Aaron another notch on her on old belt but fails miserably when Aaron calls for a second date. During the call, Amy’s loner best friend played by Vanessa Bayer is listening in and they label Aaron derange for asking Amy to go out again.
LeBron James plays himself in the film and is Aaron’s sensitive best friend, he is one of the films biggest surprises as his character has a quite few hilarious scenes in the movie. Looking out for his best friend’s best interest he interrogated Amy asking her “do you hear his name in the wind ?”in a serious but still hilarious exchange among the two.
Schumer/Apatow deliver the perfect summer rom/com with unique role reversal with Amy playing what most would unanimously agree as the guy in the relationship. Schumer and Hader’s on-screen dynamic worked flawlessly as Hader doesn’t have to do much to be funny in the film with Amy doing all of the work. It looks like Judd and Amy are definitely onto something and we hope the two link up together for more films in the future.
