The title is more apt than they probably realised. The real shame of it all is, Amy Schumer can be funny – it’s definitely happened once or twice. Frustratingly this is not one of those times. Trainwreck‘s insistence on typical tropes – the woman has daddy issues! The guy has a black best friend! Mild misunderstandings lead to a third act conflict! – would be less annoying if it didn’t also simultaneously insist it’s eschewing all the typical tropes. Sadly it doesn’t seem to realise that a cut-and-paste kooky protagonist with a drinking problem is still a cut-and-paste kooky protagonist.
