(US, 2015) Directed by Judd Apatow. Screenplay by Amy Schumer. Music by Jon Brion.
Cast: Amy Schumer, Bill Hader, Brie Larson, Colin Quinn, Tilda Swinton, LeBron James.

This year’s freshest comedy/romance is a collaboration of the fearless Amy Schumer and Judd Apatow, who has championed the work of mold-breaking women from Kristin Wiig (Bridesmaids) to Lena Dunham (Girls). Schumer plays a young NY woman who is unapologetic about her life, looks, and a love of sex without the romantic dream of monogamy & marriage. In a fresh turnaround, it is Schumer’s latest partner, a sports surgeon played by Bill Hader, who wants them to be exclusive, putting the kibosh on her erotic playbook. Part of Schumer’s charm is her willingness to take the heat, as when she is called out for her lack of black friends by none other than LeBron James.

“Schumer wants to explode rom-com clichés and replace them with something fierce and ready to rumble. Done.” – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
