​​THE WEBER MOVIE COUNTDOWN

TRAINWRECK (2015)


#70 is Trainwreck, the new Amy Schumer movie. Funny stuff (written by Amy) with Amy as a girl who just can't stop sleeping around and commit to anyone - until she meets nerdy doctor Bill Hader, who seems to change her. Or does he? Trainwreck is good up to a point - it's great when it's messing with the traditional rom-com plot. Not so great when it falls right in line with what a typical Hollywood storyline expects. A little long and draggy towards the end mainly because the problem between Hader and Amy is pretty artificial. It's probably worth a look if you are an Amy Schumer fan (as I am) but lower your expectations. Oh and Tilda Swenton is almost unrecognizable as Amy's boss!!
