Blunt Reviews Presents: Trainwreck (2015)


I genuinely really enjoyed watching this film and found that there is a lot to like. While it initially feels like the setup for the usual cameo-ridden American comedy that is utterly humourless, it prevails that Trainwreck is incredibly funny and strangely relatable. Amy Schumer is not only a fine comedic actor but a very talented writer, because at the heart of Trainwreck is a fantastically written screenplay that’s intelligent and witty, but also heavily subversive and often quite melancholic. It’s like Bridget Jones but funnier and far less annoying, with genuine character development and without the smug self-destructive overtones.
