Film: Trainwreck

Is it Oscar material? Probably not. Is the cinematography up there with that of A River Runs Through It? I don’t think so. Would you ever want to watch this in the presence of your parents? Absolutely not. But is it hysterically laugh-out-loud, pee-in-your-pants funny? YES! I didn’t know who Amy Schumer was before I watched Trainwreck¬†3 weeks ago, but now that I know her I am kind of obsessed. She is raunchy and her sense of humor is that of a 16 year-old-boy, but I really appreciate how comfortable she is in her own skin. That shines through when she is on camera. This is a movie about a girl who acts more like a guy (in the worst ways possible). But it’s also a romantic comedy about finding the one who loves you with all of your flaws.¬†Bill Hader is perfection as a neurotic doctor who is genuine, likable, and unintentionally very very funny. Another great winter rental. It’s worth noting that my husband and I both loved this film. Date night!
