Consensus: Trainwreck drags commitment out of all but the most rom-com-phobic filmgoers with sharp humor, relatable characters, and hilarious work from Amy Schumer.

Richard Roeper
Chicago Sun-Times

Schumer's performance is a tour de force of razor-sharp comedic timing.

Christopher Orr

This is a film that belongs not to its director but to its star, who, if there is any justice in the world, is about to ascend from cult icon to mass phenomenon.

[Amy Schumer's] unapologetic confidence in her identity-both sexual and professional-is refreshing, messy and totally empowering.

The title of the movie suggests its heroine is in need of repair, but the early sequences of her tottering home in high heels and sneaking outside during a date to get high defy condemnation.

It's got no rhythm or reliable comfort zone. The jokes and ensemble scenes are all rushed, so you can't savor them or what anyone in them is doing.

Trainwreck comes close to running off the rails only in the final act, when fantastical events occur. Even so, viewers can enjoy a great ride.

You forget how limited so many movies' ideas of women are until Schumer launches into an extended tampon joke. It's a film about everyday sexism and double standards.

Trainwreck ... has some very traditional romantic comedy elements, including a big, implausible finish. But even if you know where you're going to wind up, it takes interesting side trips along the way.

[Trainwreck] is human, which is more than you can say for most films. Or books. Or humans.

It's more witty and intelligent than other comedies that have come out in the past, and Schumer is a delight. However, there are jokes that fall flat, and… More

Comedian Amy Schumer has indeed made some incisive satirical commentary on the trials and tribulations of the modern woman, and while I can't say I'm… More

Decent rom com, though does drag out a little long. Similar in tone to This is 40. Typical Judd Apatow movie with its heart in the right place, flawed… More

Oh my god, this had me laughing like a madwoman on the plane. I didn't think I'd like an entire Amy Schumer screenplay but I did. Thank you Judd… More

Comedy is a very personal genre, and in this case some jokes fell completely flat for me (the Radcliffe movie, for instance, is a total miss) while others… More
