The story follows a woman named Amy (Amy Schumer) as she lives life by her father’s (Colin Quinn) lesson that ‘monogamy isn’t real’. She runs into problems with that philosophy when she gets the job of interviewing Aaron (Bill Hader) for her magazine.
While this may come off as a ‘girl’ movie it is not a movie that only the female audience will love. It shows that females are not always about marriage and love and all the things that the romance novels seem to make them out to be. Sometimes we are like Amy is in the movie. We just want to have fun and not do anything serious but when the right person comes into our lives, we are willing to make a complete fool out of ourselves to get them back.
The depth of this movie is like the ocean. On the surface it seems shallow and all about the fun, but after you dive in, you see that there is something deeper in the waters. Something that makes you see that there is more than just the blue waves that we see. Amy Schumer proves that she can not only be funny, but real as she is able to portray all the emotions that her character entails. Bill Hader proves once again that he can be more than just funny (in case you didn’t see The Skeleton Twins) and that he can be the leading man in a love story.
As expected, there were a couple of cameos that stole the few scenes that they were in. My favorite came out two people I was pleasantly surprised and got maybe a little too happy about when I saw them. You will know what I mean when you see it. There are also some cameo jokes from Amy’s stand-up shows so if you are a fan of hers, you will get an extra laugh out of some of the jokes she puts in the movie.
The team of Amy Schumer (writer) and Judd Apatow (producer/director) is dynamite as they each prove why they are both so great at telling stories and relating to the audience. It’s a winning combo that I hope team up again for another gem.
This is a great movie that you would want to watch with your friends over and over again. It has heart, love, drama, and of course, jokes up the ying-yang. It’s the kind of movie that will bring you tears of joy and tears of sadness. A real winner.
