Its lack of craft is connected to its lack of basic credibility. The same self-satisfied power-gaming that motivates this mogul to round up Matthew Broderick, Marv Albert, and Chris Evert for cameos just because also accounts for storytelling lapses both small and large. Gripe all you like about Trainwreck’s pat, happy ending and wobbly sexual politics—they’re both #problematic—but the biggest problem here is the unchecked laziness of a filmmaker in his full, undisciplined glory.

Some dips into celebrity absurdism at the end notwithstanding (I am totally fine with LeBron James’ role though), the movie worked very well as a credible, intelligent 21st century rom-com.

It’s often said that comedy doesn’t travel, but maybe it’s truer to say that one country’s neuroses (which are often the fuel for comedy) don’t translate to another. Trainwreck comes garlanded with rave reviews from the States, yet it’s likely to strike local audiences as not just unfunny but exotic, a film from a parallel world that’s like our own yet somehow elusive.
