Welcome to a new generation of fierce independence. No longer are we tied to this idea that all women are required to live long married lives.
At least that’s what Amy Schumer’s Trainwreck would like you to believe.
That is, until she crushes that modern idea when she meets a charming, wacky, love interest that causes her hard heart to melt.
If you like movies with fiercely independent women who stay independent and self reliant through and through, this will not be your cup of tea.
Now if you like movies with a leading woman with a hard exterior, who secretly wants a fairy tale ending, you’ll find this to be one of the greatest things ever.
The movie is filled with memorable quotes (my favorites being “Monogamy isn’t realistic” and “I look like Mark Wahlberg ate Mark Wahlberg!”) and a cast of quirky characters from athletes like John Cena and Lebron James to Saturday Night Live alums Bill Hader and Vanessa Bayer, not to mention the numerous cameos throughout (Daniel Radcliffe!!).
The movie deals with concepts revolving around sex, love and commitment. It also breaks the stereotype that only supermodel attractive people can star in romcoms.
All in all, if you enjoy watching films with friends, and you need something to go with your Bridesmaids double feature, Trainwreck will gladly be your film, but don’t expect much more from it.
