In the mood for some middling comedy, eh? It is everywhere this weekend. When does summer get here? I Feel Pretty Trainwreck, the 2015 big-screen break out for comic Amy Schumer (and LeBron James and John Cena) offered a wise about-face for the rom-com.

Big weekend! I mean, physically large—the movie itself is pretty forgettable.
