Even the Title Doesn't Work --- Day 4/171

Walk: Vogue Theater (Trainwreck) and around a little in our unusual balmy weather
Distance: 1 mile

"Trainwreck": Amy Schumer's a comic genius, but this lumpy Judd Apatow rom-com doesn't do her justice

She'd really like to talk about how nothing is more depressing to to Ciwt than obtuse, vulgar, unfunny comedy.  But because she can't change current comedic tastes, Ciwt will go with Salon's Andrew O'Hehir brief assessment: “Trainwreck” is not very good, but Schumer is frequently amazing in it. Officially, her fans will not be disappointed; not far below the surface, it’s a bummer.
