I'm not quite sure what to think of it, so I'll just be incredibly grateful and leave it at that.
In Judd Apatow‘s latest dramedy – a surprisingly straight-and-narrow rom-com that is not-so-surprisingly wonderful – Schumer gets a platform and a microphone and pelts out her lone-wolf POV, spraying her would-be targets with lewd bullets like certain rooftop sniper in .It’s a welcome return to form for the director and a dazzling welcoming party for the increasingly popular female figure.Her editor (an – once again – unrecognizable Tilda Swinton) dishes out assignments covering “Ugliest Celebrity Babies Under 6,” “Are You Really Gay or is She Just Boring” and “The Effects of Garlic on the Taste of Semen.” In her off-time, Schumer drinks, smokes pot and carves notches into the proverbial belt, even while dating dunce strongman Steven (an absolutely hysterical John Cena).For her distaste of sports (“I just think everyone who likes sports is a lesser human being”) Amy is assigned an expose on sports doctor Aaron (Bill Hader) who has implemented a “game-changing” knee surgery that will have athletes recovering in half the time they might under normal circumstances.People get divorced, but that's what happens to other people.
That's what Claire thought anyway, until her husband, Charlie, tells her he wants a divorce.
Stuffed to the gills with phenomenal supporting characters and guest appearances – the far-too-infrequently-appearing Quinn and his drunken daddy routine; a randy, underage Ezra Miller; the always alluring and dramatically competent Brie Larson; hilariously dorky newcomer Evan Brinkman; the inspired but under-utilized combination of Randall Park and Jon Glaser; sign-wielding hobo Dave Attell; Noman Lloyd‘s uproariously out-of-touch geriatric; and a completely out-of-left-field but entirely winning Le Bron James as an effeminate concerned best friend-type – onsidered a “work in progress”, at two hours, Trainwreck is already more trim than most Apatow films – his last two films clocked in at 134 and 153 minutes – so I don’t imagine the final product will look dramatically different from the iteration we were screened here at SXSW.
I participated in Book Soulmates' Random Acts of Kindness (one of my favorite blog memes or whatever you call this one) again last month, as I do most months.
If you've never participated, I highly recommend it.
The sign-up for the new month is posted around the first of the month. I have sent out quite a bit of stuff this month, so it wasn't until today that I realized that I hadn't sent any formal RAKs!
Because the Law of Attraction says we get what we focus on (what we put our energy into), we need to focus on healthy relationships that do not involve games.
