Trainwreck (2015)

The movie wasn’t as it was titled, but the movie did derail here and there. Judd Apatow is back with another 2+ hour long rom-com. Amy Schumer does a good job as the lead and her writing wasn’t too bad either (that is if she did all the writing on her own). The cast is full of great stars. I loved seeing Brie Larson, Tilda Swinton, Bill Hader and Ezra Miller. John Cena and LeBron James stole the show and they are just sports stars! Daniel Radcliffe has 2015’s best cameo as the “Dog Walker”. Some of the jokes are really funny and others fall a little flat. This is one of the better Judd Apatow movies I’ve seen lately though after a string of disappointments. The final scene is really cute, even though I didn’t totally feel the chemistry between Hader and Schumer.

78/100

  1. I honestly barely remember the plot of this story. But as a Cleveland/Akron native, I remember all the hilarious conversations between Lebron James and Bill Hader, especially when he asks him why he visited him in Florida, but not in Cleveland. Good stuff.

    • The plot was kinda sad at times, basically Schumer was a woman who loved sex but no attachments, wouldn’t get close to anyone. She had a sick father with M.S. which was tough for me, because my wife has that. It’s still a pretty good movie, but not surprised the plot is sort of forgettable.

      • I can’t believe I don’t remember any of that. I’m sort of ashamed.

        I didn’t know that you were married, and I’m sorry to hear your wife has MS. I’m a widow, almost four years now, though I lost my spouse to an accident, not a prolonged illness. I can’t imagine that struggle.

      • Yeah, I guess I don’t put a whole lot of personal details in my reviews. I’ve been married for 5 years now. Got married on 11/11/2011.
        I’m sorry to hear about your spouse, that’s heartbreaking to hear. 😦
        My wife has had MS since she was 18. The medicine she has been on keeps at bay mostly, but just last month she had to start walking with a cane. She’s only 31, so seeing her like that has been pretty hard on me, but you just got to enjoy life where you can. It’s all you can do.

      • I understand the lack of personal detail. I’ve mentioned my situation only in comments to certain people, never in the blog posts.

        18 is so very young, that’s a long time to deal with a progressive illness. You seem to have a very positive attitude and I’m sure that must be some comfort to her. I hope you are enjoying life today.
