'Trainwreck' Review

Inside Amy Schumer is funny and smart, but I'm not sure I was quite prepared for what she'd bring to Trainwreck, which she wrote and also stars in. This romantic comedy finds her revealing new layers to her delightfully tart persona -- plus, it gives Bill Hader one of his best film roles. (LeBron James is a hoot, too.) This is the first film directed by Judd Apatow that he didn't write as well. I don't think it's a coincidence it's also one of his strongest. My review of Trainwreck is up at Screen International.
