‘Trainwreck’ Is Judd Apatow's Best Film And Amy Schumer Is Absolutely Perfect In It

On the way home after seeing Trainwreck this past Tuesday night, I saw a subway poster for the film advertising it as, “From the guy who brought you Bridesmaids.” I found this peculiar when you consider that the director of Trainwreck, Judd Apatow, has directed and/or written eight films since 2005’s The 40-Year-Old Virgin, yet Bridesmaids isn’t one of those films. 836 more words
