Nine year old Amy (Devin Fabry) and her five year old sister Kim (Carla Oudin) are drilled by their father Gordon (Colin Quinn) that monogamy isn’t realistic. Twenty three years later Amy (Amy Schumer) lives by her father’s words unlike Kim (Brie Larson) who has settle down with Tom (Mike Birbiglia) and his son Allister (Evan Brinkman). Amy works as a writer for S’Nuff Magazine and covers some of the most bizarre stories that her boss Dianna (Tilda Swinton) assigns to her along with her associates Nikki (Vanessa Bayer), Bryson (Randall Park), Schultz (Jon Glaser) and the new intern Donald (Ezra Miller).
At the home front Amy is quite the player, lots of sex. alcohol, pot and party time, this is not her first rodeo. Daddies little girl! When dad gets suddenly sick and unable to care for himself Amy and Kim make the decision to place him in assisted living. Amy has a regular lover, Steven (John Cena) who happens to have some gay tendencies but that doesn’t stop him from wanting Amy until Amy like all the other guys she doesn’t want them or him and hasn’t been faithful in the least. In clothes or out of them and several of her suitors are bare butt and bare foot Amy gets around!
When Kim becomes pregnant she has that talk with Amy about changing her ways and settling down but for Amy life is a party and that’s the way it should be. Should it? Well she starts to do a story on the sports industry and her subject happens to be Doctor Aaron Conner (Bill Hader). Not the most attractive guy but very good in bed according to Amy. Sex leads into dating and dating into a relationship which leads into reality. Something Amy has comes to terms with her entire life. So far! People love and people fight but as the old saying goes, never go to bed angry. Not always the case when one or the other is being childish or unethical. Amy seeks advice from Nikkii and Aaron reaches out to his BF LeBron James (LeBron James). Nikki wants to call the police yet LeBron tells Amy face to face not to hurt Aaron, or else. That’s what friends are for!
Sometimes when tragedy strikes people look around and realize just who matters in their life and who their actual friends are and who has really been there in times of need. Yet one should always be aware of the first time you say to the one your with, “I love you” since that can be a major win or lose. What is happy yet for that matter what is unhappy, sometimes what you’ve been looking for is staring you right in the face and you don’t realize it until it’s too late. Living in the moment and making the most of it with that one special person might just be happy but for those who choose to seek it elsewhere they may lose that happy for unhappy. Sometimes like Amy you may find yourself grabbing the wrong pineapple especially at the ripe age of sixteen. Yet sometimes some people like our uptown girl Amy has been practicing for the main event. Happy!
This film has a lot of butt in compromising situations that many ladies might be able to relate too. The story is well written and also well directed and I could definitely sit through it again. A good soundtrack along with a hysterical cast surrounding some very real situations also make this film worth seeing for guys and gals. Schumer is hysterical and is superb delivering her lines with Larson being the perfect balance. Cena is looking all buff from head to toe front to back since you really get to see quite a bit of him and he does a nice job showing his feminine side as well accompanied by a smooth gay undertone. Quinn is a great distraction and side story as is the relationship that Larson has with Birbiglia and Brinkman. Who would have thought that LeBron could act; actually he does a nice job most of the time. There are a few cameos and a number of one night stands to highlight many of the comedic moments that add to the reasons for seeing this film. Even though I had a bad day I absolutely enjoyed this film and give in 3.5 paws out of 4 by Jon Patch.
