I know it’s not Amy Schumer’s job to be all things to all women. I know that.
We’ve grown to love Schumer for poking fun at sexism and being unapologetically flawed and human in her stand-up and her sketch comedy show Inside Amy Schumer.
So a film seemed like the logical next step for the woman described by GQ as the “funniest, gutsiest comedian in America”.
She may have written Trainwreck, her new Judd Apatow-directed film, but Schumer is worth so much more than this rom-com.
Going in, what I wanted was a celebration of the anti-manic-pixie-dream-girl, the antithesis of the “cool girl”, coined by Gillian Flynn in Gone Girl – in other words, a real, live human.
