Since she was little, it's been drilled into Amy's head by her dad that monogamy isn't realistic. Now a magazine writer, Amy lives by that credo; enjoying what she feels is an uninhibited life free from stifling, boring romantic commitment, but in actuality, she's kind of in a rut. When she finds herself starting to fall for the subject of the new article she's writing, a charming and successful sports doctor named Aaron Conners; Amy starts to wonder if other grown-ups might be on to something.

While I am not a big fan of Amy Schumer, this actually could have been a decent film if it were about 20 minutes shorter. Lots of slow scenes in it, but it could have been better. I remember when I saw it in the theater I wanted to leave towards the end, while at home watching the DVD I just turned it off.

A delight start to finish. Pure comedy, with plenty of real human experience. A broken person still is worthy of love. I would recommend reading Amy Schumer's book first so that you feel her sense of humor. It is rated R for good reason, but I laughed the whole way through, and almost cried a little too.

Blech. Tasteless and smutty jokes derail what could have been a real exploration of relationships, adulthood, & intimacy. Amy Schumer plays a party girl , working at a tacky "gents" magazine with the gross name of "S'nuff" (where "snuff" is a poor joke playing on snuff porn, where the woman gets killed; frequently this is faked but the message is the same). She gets sent to interview a sports doctor, a man whom she treats like other men (casual, uncommitted: due to her father's advice to her as a little girl re: relationships as he experiences a bitter divorce). He's portrayed as frightening her because he's interested in a committed relationship. Unrealistic ending.

I typically like raunchy, foul mouthed comedies. I quickly found myself fast-forwarding through every scene with Amy Schumer. This movie was bad and just not that funny. I typically find her stand up whiny and sexist so I'm not too surprised that I found this movie unwatchable. As I've gotten older I'm much quicker about quitting on a movie. I just couldn't finish this one.

Lebron James, Bill Hader, John Cena and Colin Quinn were doing a great job keeping scenes funny and alive for awhile.

In Trainwreck - Amy Townsend (a two-faced, stiletto slut) was so trashy (and so worthy of my complete contempt) that I loathed her immediately.

And all I wanted to do was to slap Amy's stupid face, non-stop - (Yeah) - Right from Trainwreck's totally unfunny opening sequence, through to this picture's predictably "brain-dead" closing moments.

You know, I cannot understand, for the life of me, why so many people are literally falling all over themselves and offering up praise for this insipid, throw-away junk.

Yep. Trainwreck's a real stinker. That's for sure.

Pure rubbish about an irritating, manipulative white-trash bimbo.

John Cena makes a total ass of himself.

The best part of this movie is LeBron James.

Tread worn plot. Writing is abominably trite...Amy Shumer can't act either.

Waste of time.

LeBron: Okay, so you... You had the salmon. That's about $14.
Aaron: What are you doing, man?
LeBron: You had two Cokes.
Aaron: Dude, are you trying to split the bill? Look.
LeBron: Look, I... Look, I told you those refills weren't free. Yeah.
Aaron: No, no, no, no, no. We're not splitting the bill. Pick up the check.
LeBron: Why do I have to pick up the check?
Aaron: 'Cause you're LeBron James.
LeBron: Listen, don't look at me no differently now just because I got a little money. Look, I don't know how long this coud last. Anything can happen. Right. I'm not about to end up like MC Hammer. Yeah. Listen, you owe $32.43.

Dad (part 1 of 2:) Dad: Girls, your mother and I are getting divorced. Don't cry. I know you're upset. I know you're confused. I don't know what your mother told you, but let me explain it from my side, in terms you can understand.You got your doll, right? You got your doll there. ... You got your doll. You like your doll, right? ... You love your doll. ... Yes, you love the doll. But what if I told you... that was the only doll you're allowed to play with the rest of your life? How would you feel? Sad.

Dad (part 2 of 2:) You'd feel sad. Of course. 'Cause there's a lot of other dolls on your shelves. And if you play with the other dolls, you can't have that doll anymore. Even though that doll doesn't really want to play with you at this point. You're both living a lie. There's other dolls you like, and they're making new dolls every year. You want a stewardess doll? ... What about a slightly overweight cocktail waitress doll? ... What about a doll who happens to be best friends with your main doll? Yeah. It could happen, right? ... A doll you only play with one day and never see again? Yeah! What about a doll where your friend's playing with a doll, and he needs you to, you know, kind of man up with the other doll. You don't even wanna play with that doll, but you do it... 'cause your friend's playing with that doll. You don't wanna sit there and leave the other doll unattended. ... So that's why me and Mom are getting divorced. Monogamy isn't realistic.
