Childhood Amy and Kim get a talk from their father about his impending divorce from their mother.   He tells them “monogamy isn’t realistic”.  For Kim, his advice goes in one ear and out the other.  Kim later becomes married with a step child. On the other hand, Amy takes this advice to heart and has a string of one night stands along a “boyfriend”, Steven (played by John Cena).  Amy is a successful writer; working at a magazine called S’nuff, and eyeing a promotion.  However, the current riff in Amy’s life is between she and her sister, Kim.  Their father, Gordon, is suffering from MS and needs to be placed in a nursing home.  Amy wants a nice place but since Kim is paying, Kim wants something cheaper.  Amy believes Kim financial clarity is due to her resentment from their father’s past indiscretions.   In order to get a chance at the promotion, Amy is given the assignment to work with a Sports Medicine doctor, Aaron Conners.  After interviewing Aaron, Amy has a one-night-stand with him that doesn’t go as planned.  This leads to both characters discovering their faults in their relationship and themselves.

This movie is a mix of Bridesmaids, Like Mike, The Break-up, and any romantic comedy.  At times this movie makes fun of itself for being a romantic comedy, which gives it charm and charisma.  However, with appearances form LeBron James, John Cena, Amar’e Stoudemire, and the Knicks City Cheerleaders, Trainwreck instantly becomes a perfect date movie.  You will have moments that you can’t believe what your heard, moments you wish you could say that in public, and moments that make you cringe because they are too YOU.  Laughing out loud is not an option nor is it done out of pity in this movie.  You will laugh at comedy from all the actors.  Trainwreck doesn’t give funny lines to just 2 or 3 actors, each actor holds their own.  And, you won’t see LeBron James or John Cena the same ever again.  This movie is worth seeing in the theaters at any time.

I give it 4 out of 5 stars

Where am I? Eww, a Scarface poster.  Please don’t be a dorm room.  Please don’t be a dorm room – Amy
