I thought Matilda was channeling Kathy Beale out of Eastenders!

Thought I'd give this a second chance. Still bland, not really funny and way too long.
I noticed in Edinburgh tonight that it was the same few people that were laughing, sometimes at every utterance. No one in my row, the row behind or the row in front laughed much at all.
I laughed once. At a different bit this time.

I thought the same, glad I was not alone, all i could see when she was on the screen was Kathy so couldnt take her seriously. I enjoyed this, but dont think it was as funny as the film thought it was, certainly not as good as Bridesmaids 7.5/10.

Saw this in a less than half-full Kingston. I usually find there is a problem when I go to Kingston, and this was no exception. They started the film at 6 o’clock when there were only about five of us in the auditorium. They let it run for 15 minutes before realising their mistake – when they stopped it. And then at 6:30 they started it again – only this time it was the wrong film – it was “Diary of a Teenage Girl” which we had seen the previous day! They very quickly stopped that – but then they were now running late – so Trainwreck actually started about 5-10 minutes late! Once it got going, it was actually quite funny in a chick-flick, puerile sort of way. I could well believe it came from the same producer as Bridesmaids. I thought the funniest scene was the first one (which we saw twice!) in which Amy’s father was explaining why he and her mother were splitting up. It was definitely made for American audiences as I had no idea who the cameos were (apart from Matthew Broderick) and only recognised Chris Evert when they mentioned her name. All the other American sports stars were completely lost on me. I probably wouldn’t go to the cinema to see it but might watch it on Netflix. 6/10

There was some funny parts but it was just slow and long. I was bored!

on reflection, I'll give this a 2 out of 3.

I thought Tilda Swinton had some of the best lines.

As I didn't recognise any of the folk who appeared towards the end, and certainly not Chris Evert. I think this will appeal to American audiences more than the British.

The Actor who played the Surgeon was believeable.

Considering I went to see Diary of a Teenage Girl on Monday, I will give this film 6 out of 10.

I really enjoyed it, found it very funny yet touching in places. Very well received by the audience of the screening I went to, heard many positive comments as I was exiting.

I see it last Wednesday. I think it's okay movie... not to good but not bad at all. The things I like most is a lot of cameo here :)

I was not expecting this to be that good, however I found the whole film engaging and very funny in parts. Well worth a watch and Amy Schumer was excellent in the lead.
