TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Trainwreck drags commitment out of all but the most rom-com-phobic filmgoers with sharp humor, relatable characters, and hilarious work from Amy Schumer.

Movie Info

Since she was a little girl, it's been drilled into Amy's (Schumer) head by her rascal of a dad (Colin Quinn) 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 (Bill Hader), Amy starts to wonder if other grown-ups, including this guy who really seems to like her, might be on to something.

Schumer's performance is a tour de force of razor-sharp comedic timing.

August 14, 2015
Chicago Sun-Times
Top Critic

The title of the movie suggests its heroine is in need of repair, but the early sequences of her tottering home in high heels and sneaking outside during a date to get high defy condemnation.

You forget how limited so many movies' ideas of women are until Schumer launches into an extended tampon joke. It's a film about everyday sexism and double standards.

Time Out
Top Critic

This is a film that belongs not to its director but to its star, who, if there is any justice in the world, is about to ascend from cult icon to mass phenomenon.

The Atlantic
Top Critic

It's got no rhythm or reliable comfort zone. The jokes and ensemble scenes are all rushed, so you can't savor them or what anyone in them is doing.

Top Critic

Trainwreck ... has some very traditional romantic comedy elements, including a big, implausible finish. But even if you know where you're going to wind up, it takes interesting side trips along the way.

Audience Reviews for Trainwreck

Comedian Amy Schumer has indeed made some incisive satirical commentary on the trials and tribulations of the modern woman, and while I can't say I'm a huge fan of her vocally fried stand-up delivery, she does prove herself a competent actress in this movie and her televised sketches. I was expecting this romcom to break a little ground though - be unabashedly unapologetic for fourth wave feminism, but it ends up reinforcing the traditional trope of one partner trying to change the other and the other one capitulating by the end. It's a cute gender-reversed capitulation with awkward Amy winning Aaron over by dancing along with the New York Knicks cheerleaders, but there's really no development as to why the two connected in the first place, and as such, whether there's enough gas in the tank to keep this tank rolling after the obligatory grand romantic gesture. Tilda Swinton, buffed and bronzed to unrecognizable perfection, channels devil in Prada as the bossy British editrix, LeBron James is a surprise comedic talent, and can DanRad BE any cooler making fun of himself in all manners of ridiculous cameos?

Oh my god, this had me laughing like a madwoman on the plane. I didn't think I'd like an entire Amy Schumer screenplay but I did. Thank you Judd Apatow for another smash riot. Only thing I hated was the typical "New York rom-com ending", seriously the whole journalist apology article and flashmob performance thing has been done to death. Other than that, I'd totally pay to watch this again.

It's more witty and intelligent than other comedies that have come out in the past, and Schumer is a delight. However, there are jokes that fall flat, and the film suffers from being too long for its own good and for an uneven tone.
