We’re right in the middle of struggle movie season, but here’s a bright spot: Trainwreck, directed by Judd Apatow and written Amy Schumer, spins the traditional rom-com on its head with a foul-mouthed leading lady who’s basically a drunken mess.
Schumer plays a work hard, play hard magazine writer, with a deep history with the walk of shame. Her streak of one-night stands risks coming to an end when she meets Aaron (Bill Hader), the subject of her latest profile. He’s a charming sports doctor who watches Downton Abbey with LeBron James, and further proof that Hader’s sex appeal is criminally underrated. The biggest surprise, though? Unlike most of his peers, LeBron’s delivery is fairly believable. The cast includes Brie Larson, Vanessa Bayer, and John Cena. Trainwreck hits theaters on July 17.
