Amy Schumer, Bill Hader, and Judd Apatow on the set of “Trainwreck”

Whenever anyone goes into a movie directed by Judd Apatow (The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Knocked Up, Funny People), they know it would come out as raunchy, depressing, and funny. Trainwreck, his latest, is no exception. Ever since she was nine, Amy Townsend (Amy Schumer) has been taught by her dad (Colin Quinn) that monogamy isn’t realistic. In the present day, we see Amy dumping guy after guy, especially Steven (John Cena; “I look like Mark Wahlberg ate Mark Wahlberg.”), partying, and getting high. She lives in a small apartment in New York and working at a men’s magazine. Her assignment is to interview Aaron Connors (the hilarious Bill Hader), a sports medicine doctors working for players including LeBron James (playing a fictional version of himself). They immediately become attracted to each other. But will they ever stay together, or will Amy stick with her father’s advice? With excellent chemistry between Schumer and Hader, countless fast-paced jokes (I’ll see it again eventually), and amusing-as-hell cameos, Trainwreck is the best comedy so far this year.

3.5/4
