A regular of the New York comedy scene, Amy Schumer’s “Trainwreck” is a romantic comedy packed with tons of extra laugh lines. Amy leads what many would look at as the perfect life; a great apartment with a hot boyfriend and a killer job. What’s not to love?
“Trainwreck” takes pot-shots at the idea of post-feminism, where women are now as lusty as men, and great careers are available to skirts or pant-suits; the boy’s club is supposedly a thing of the past. Or is it? Amy embodies what yesterday’s feminists were longing for; a female that’s equal to, and sometimes even superior to men. But is today’s idealistic world of gender-equality really all it’s cracked up to be?
