Inside Amy Schumer.
124 Minutes. Starring: Amy Schumer, Bill Hader, Brie Larson, Tilda Swinton, John Cena, Amar'e Stoudemire & LeBron James. Director: Judd Apatow.
Get on board with Amy Schumer! Because right now the new queen of comedy is coming in like a wrecking ball. And now the woman who once joked that she'd finally made it with her high-school crush...but now has to go to prom with him, is putting her love life on screen for the romantic comedy of the year. Trust me, you're going to want to be part of this 'Trainwreck'. She's the bride now leaving everyone else, even Melissa McCarthy 'Bridesmaids'. Amy is amazing and alongside the directing king of Judd Apatow and the underrated prince of jokes as live as Saturday Night in Bill Hader, what more could you ask for in this game of thrones, where heads roll with laughter? Then how about King James himself? Because Cleveland Cavalier megastar LeBron James is here too and the best player in the NBA is also showing he's the best athlete actor, dry-erasing his 'Space Jam' audition with the silver linings of this playbook. The athletic dunker takes it to the future DVD favourite rack here, stealing the show from an All-Star cast that includes Brie Larson, an inspired intervention of classic comedy and even fellow NBA great with a perfect personality for comedy, Amar'e Stoudemire, with a New York Knee injury subplot a little close to the bone for the now star of LeBron James' former Miami Heat team. Still, if you prefer your talents residing in South Beach and your using your heat to burn number 23 jerseys we have some other directing decisions for you. Like tipping your caps to Mark Wah...ah hem, we mean John Cena who hilariously wrestles the spotlight from any superstar with his light hearted look of being the macho man. Yet its the completely unrecognizable Tilda Swinton who masks the funniest and best performance as a bitch of a Devil 'Writes' Prada' boss. As the porcelain pretty actress of usual dialogue depth slaps on the war-paint make-up and caricature cockney accent, sending up literally everything and everyone including herself. This is what its all about, not taking yourself too seriously. And with this in mind, nobody does it better than the amiable Amy who by doing all of this shows she's a runaway talent. No train-wreck. No joke! Don't miss this train, because she's not stopping for anyone! TIM DAVID HARVEY.
