In a film filled with cameos by comedy legends and SNL cast members, LeBron James and Jon Cena get by far the biggest laughs, which is maybe a problem.

Trainwreck can be so funny, but there is disappointment here where there should have been so much potential.
July 21, 2015
Schumer flaunts shtick.
July 18, 2015
Flying in the face of the Schumer character's initial independence, 'Trainwreck' slips into romantic-comedy formula. In the end, it's just an old-fashioned love story.

I didn't like most of the characters. I couldn't stand to have dinner with any of these people, let alone spend two hours in a movie theater with them.
July 17, 2015
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.

"Trainwreck" is not very good, but Schumer is frequently amazing in it. Officially, her fans will not be disappointed; not far below the surface, it's a bummer.
July 17, 2015
There's a good movie in here, but it feels like Apatow and Co didn't trust that people would care without endless cheesy celeb cameos and pointless topical riffs.
July 17, 2015
Despite Schumer's subversive instincts, the romantic comedy remains unchanged.
July 16, 2015
On the heels of the tremendous 'Obvious Child,' which challenged conventions about the modern female, 'Trainwreck' doesn't feel nearly as groundbreaking and revolutionary.
July 16, 2015
Apatow and Schumer both seem burdened by terminal coprolalia (an uncontrollable or obsessive use of obscene language). Even if it weren't loaded with bad language and so many unattractive sexual situations and jokes, it would still be far too long.
July 16, 2015
In the way of most Apatow films, Trainwreck is a little too long, a little too shaggy and a little too conservative in insisting that all's square in love and war.
July 16, 2015
My love of Schu makes it difficult to admit this, but I didn't like Trainwreck.
July 16, 2015
A missed opportunity for Schumer to sharpen her brand of comedy into something more than merely ideologically appealing, Trainwreck only showcases her limitations.
July 16, 2015
A deeply lazy and sentimental raunch comedy from director Judd Apatow and writer-star Amy Schumer. Basically, a marshmallow covered with bodily fluids.
July 16, 2015
Romantic comedies can go in all sorts of directions, but they depend on the audience's believing that a couple should get together and stay together. But in "Trainwreck," that belief is hard to come by.
July 16, 2015
A one-liner delivery system with quips where the story's supposed to be, throwing everything out of balance.
July 16, 2015
The script doesn't revel in Amy's quite harmless flaws, or at least examine them in the spirit of benevolence.
July 15, 2015
I'm not sure who's most responsible for Trainwreck's ultimate timidity, for the mordant ribaldry evinced in the first half hour or so inexorably oozing into couple-y goo.
July 14, 2015
Apatow and Schumer probably believe they've made a feminist picture, but the reality is something different. This is a conventional movie dressed as a progressive one.
