Amy Schumer’s big screen debut.

Amy Townsend (Schumer) writes for a men’s magazine and also doesn’t believe in monogamy. When she’s assigned a piece about sports surgeon Aaron Conners (Bill Hader), things begin to change.

It was really funny! I definitely need to check out her show. She made the character likeable and real. It was a typical romantic comedy but way more raunchy. I didn’t feel like the sex or language took away from the story though. There was a great family story in there too involving Amy, her sister, Kim (Brie Larson), and their father Gordon (Colin Quinn), who helped shaped Amy’s anti-monogamy views.

Hader is always great to see, though I haven’t seen him much outside of SNL style comedies and he can play it straight. Also, he and Schumer were adorable. Tilda Swinton played Amy’s boss and it was unusual to see her in a comedy. But she played comedic ice queen well! Random: I really wanted her clothes. I don’t particularly like Lebron James (STAY AWAY FROM SPACE JAM) but I will give him props. His comedic timing was impeccable.

Basically, you can’t hate a movie that ends with Billy Joel’s “A Matter of Trust”. It’s impossible.
