Movies Watched -- Trainwreck

Added on by C. Maoxian.

129 minutes long so at least 30 to 40 minutes too long. I fast forwarded from 20 minutes in. Amy Schumer looks like Miss Piggy, fat and unattractive, and she plays a "slut," but the guys she sleeps with would never sleep with her in real life. It's true that men will have sex with just about anyone, but they'd draw the line at someone who looks like Amy Schumer. It's a Judd Apatow movie so the raunch humor is aimed at teenage boys, once again. It's a weird one though, totally conventional despite the "subversive" humor, in the end it's an old fashioned Jewish girl fantasy in the sense that she ends up with a doctor. Red rating (avoid).

Wes Morris hated the movie; here's his beautiful review.
