Amy Schumer plays Amy Townsend who as a girl was taught by her father that “monogamy is bad”. As an adult, Amy is a heavy partier who sleeps around. She does have one steady guy, Steven, played by John Cena, but she sees other men as well.
Amy works for S’nuff, a men’s magazine. She is assigned by her boss to write a story on sports doctor Aaron Conners (Bill Hader). Amy knows nothing about sports which quickly becomes apparent to Aaron. Aaron invites her out and they end up sleeping together. When Amy tries to leave, Aaron convinces her to spend the night. The next day, much to Amy’s surprise, Aaron calls her.
A romance soon blossoms but Amy and Aaron are from different worlds. Aaron’s world is very professional and includes famous athletes like Tony Romo, Amar’e Stoudemire, and Lebron James. Amy on the other hand is brash and bold and carefree.
This movie was written by Amy Schumer and really displays her talents in the comedy world. She is a wonderful comedienne and a pretty solid actress. Her and Bill Hader (from Saturday Night Live) were both outstanding and were convincing as a couple. Then there is Lebron James. He’s not known for his acting, but he pulled it off quite well. Lebron had more than a bit part, and has a future in the acting world. In one scene, Lebron holds an intervention for Aaron that includes Chris Evert, Marv Albert, and Matthew Broderick. Lebron was great.
Judd Apatow directed this movie and did a fantastic job with all of the talent that he had to work with. Even John Cena was good and you see a lot more of John than you would expect to – enjoy ladies. This movie is rated R and it definitely needs to be so don’t bring your small children. I gave this movie 3 ½ out of 4 stars.
