Movie: Trainwreck

Year: 2015

Rating: 4 stars

Okay, so I was planning on posting a book review today, but I need to talk about Trainwreck.

I watched this movie yesterday and it was everything I needed and expected.

I am not a big fan of comedy movies, they have to have some specific qualities to make me enjoy them, the most important is brains. It has to be well thought, not just a collection of ideas thrown together. And it has to have heart.

Trainwreck has these qualities and it also have two great leads, Amy Schumer and Bill Hader. This is a romantic comedy with leads who are not your typical romcom leads. They are real, they are flawed, they are human. They don’t make exaggerated mistakes for the sake of a joke, they have very human reactions, their mistakes are the ones anyone could make.

This movie has hilarious scenes, and some top notch cameos.

LeBron James and John Cena are great findings and shine as much as Brie Larson, Mike Birbiglia and Colin Quinn.

This is such a great movie, I keep forgetting it was directed by Judd Apatow. It has his touch, but to a more evolved level. It is definitely worth watching it.

(Warning: This is a R rated movie, not something to watch with kids or grandparents :~P)
