If the overwhelming amount of positive reviews didn’t already convince you to go see Amy Schumer’s new movie “Trainwreck,” then perhaps these endorsements from Hollywood’s elite will.
Though film critics noted that the jokes in “Trainwreck” aren’t as edgy as on her Comedy Central series “Inside Amy Schumer,” the big names backing Schumer suggest the comedian hasn’t lost her sense of humor in her big screen debut.
Jerry Seinfeld tweeted, “Couldn’t love ‘Trainwreck’ more. @amyschumer too good to live. Maybe the most opposite of the title movies ever made.”
“Go watch the FUNNY movie ‘Trainwreck.’ Some awesome people involved and I want there to be a trilogy and a prequel,” comedian Chris D’Elia wrote on Twitter.
In the rom-com, Schumer plays Amy — a proud commitment-phobe who lives by her own rules. Bill Hader stars as her love interest, Aaron, a sports doctor whom Amy must interview for a men’s magazine. NBA star LeBron James has also scored big with critics, playing himself and Aaron’s best friend.
