Trainwreck. For some reason this mainstream rom-com got quite a bit of press and controversy. I like Amy Schumer and finally got around to seeing it. She plays a writer with a pretty cool but not super important job (she writes for a men's magazine) who drinks a lot and loves no strings attached casual sex. In this part of the movie I thought she was great. She had wonderful lines, said whatever was on her mind, and called out bullshit. Then she falls in love and things start to fall apart both in her life and with the movie. I was bored and disappointed in how she learned to "grow up". Also, the final scene was ridiculous.
