TRAINWRECK review by Carla Renata via UBNRadio.com and Carla Renata's Corner
We have this type of girlfriend. You know the one who parties hard all the time, has commitment issues and is uber competitive? Yup, we all know one and apparently so does Amy Schumer.
As writer and star of "Trainwreck", Schumer puts a familiar, yet comical twist on "those types of chicks".
The laughs are plentiful and come from several unlikely sources, however, the most pleasant surprise was Lebron James. Yeah, THAT Lebron James! You know the one who left Cleveland and came back to play ball? When I tell you his character had me howling...I am not exaggerating! Laugh out loud funny stuff. His scene with Bill Hader is one of the best in the film.
Speaking of which, Bill Hader is so sweet and lovable... Hell, I would go out on a date with him and that is saying ALOT...lol. It's surely a departure from his usual post SNL type dudes and a very welcomed one to say the least. The chemistry with he and Schumer is off the charts.
The scenes at the magazine with the staff, include Schumer, but a ridiculously comical Randall Park, Vanessa Bayer and freaking Tilda Swinton. Let's talk about that fact that I didn't even know Swinton was in the film until the credits rolled. Now that's what you call a character chameleon! She's is so comical, but real to the point where she sort of reminded me of some people I know...ouch!
I would venture to say two of my favorite scenes involve Swinton and Schumer, a little surprise number toward the end of the flick that is magnificently hilarious and a doctor office scene that made me holler!!!
Trainwreck is available on DVD, Blu-Ray, Digital HD and VOD.
