Brief Synopsis – A female reporter who fears monogamy meets a sports doctor and begins to question her lifestyle.

My Take on it – Amy Schumer happens to be a very funny actress and when writing this project she tailored it perfectly for herself and the end result is hilarious.

It wss wuite refreshing to see this kinda story with role reversal and giving us the whole thing from the female perspective.
The idea to do this with Judd Apatow was ingenious because it helps set the perfect tone for this movie.

The plot follows the very typical formula for a romcom but because it was done right it still works well and is extremely enjoyable.

Bottom Line – Schumer is hilariously perfect for this role. Was refreshing to see this kinda story from a female perspective and the teaming with Apatow sets the perfect tone. Follows the typical romcom formula but still is enjoyable because it works well. Recommended!

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Norman Lloyd, who plays a supporting role in this movie, was 100 years old during filming. Lloyd (who was born in November 1914) had his first role in a Broadway show in 1927 and his first movie role in 1939; his career has included roles for Alfred Hitchcock, Orson Welles, Charlie Chaplin, and Martin Scorsese. After being blacklisted during the Red Scare of the 1950s, Alfred Hitchcock again employed him–this time as a producer, on the TV series Alfred Hitchcock Presents, and then he enjoyed an acting resurgence during the 1980s after being cast as Dr. Daniel Auschlander on St. Elsewhere. Lloyd claimed that most of his lines were improvised, and that it was the first time in his career that he improvised during a performance. (From IMDB)

Rating – Globe Worthy
