still of Bill Hader and Amy Schumer from trainwreck

Trainwreck Review (2015)

Trainwreck is not exactly weighing on a plot, but it’s damn funny!

So this is how comedy movies ought to be. Okay not exactly slow paced, and rummaging at a snail’s pace for a plot. But I am talking about the humour. A1!

Amy Schumer is excellent with her slapstick witty comebacks. Her one-liners and her prime comic timing crack you up and you burst out into fits of laughter at times. Bill Hader complements her beautifully. Both are excellent comedians and have been placed beautifully in the flick that see a lot of cameos by the renowned.

Judd chooses a quirky storyline to punch in huge sports figures like Lebron, John Cena, Amar’e Stoudemire. Also, he doesn’t leave out the entire cast of SNL. So it’s like watching SNL do a bit, only that lasts 125 mins. Also, there are quite brilliant cameos by famous actors like Daniel Radcliffe, Marisa Tomei, Matthew Broderick etc. each one of them imparted an excellent humorous bit to nail.

The drama doesn’t exactly tingle your nerves but it wasn’t supposed to in the first place. The story whatever little we had in the baggage was basically the most cliched one. Also quite predictable as you see everything coming. But the characters and the cast of the flick furbish it quite superbly.

So the bottom-line: A comedy movie that tries to walk on a sports backdrop and on comic ventures of the famous.














  • Awesome humour
  • Great cameos
  • A different take on the sports niche


  • Predictable plot
  • So many known faces it's like watching SNL
  • Too many shoehorned cameos
