Amy Schumer's comedy with Jennifer Lawrence will be funny, dirty, and real

11.05.2015

After viewing TRAINWRECK, and loving it, Jennifer Lawrence reached out to Amy Schumer and the pair soon became fast friends; in fact, they hit it off so well that they decided to write a movie for both of them to star in. The as-yet-untitled comedy will see Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer playing sisters and now the pair have given a few teases as to what their film will be about.

Amy Schumer spoke with Access Hollywood and said:

We just finished a new draft, and we’re just excited about it, it’s funny, it’s dirty, it’s real. It’s like us.

Meanwhile, Jennifer Lawrence spoke with Entertainment Tonight to confirm Schumer's description and to elaborate on the plot:

Yep! It’s is all of those things, Amy, in this movie, she has it very together. It's her lifelong dream to be a flight attendant. She works at the airport. And I'm a mess.

Lawrence also commented on the pair's working relationship, saying that "we both have very similar senses of humor, obviously and aren't afraid, which is a good and bad thing, because I don't know what our movie will be rated. And we're both very blunt. So we've gotten through a really strenuous process without ever fighting, because we're both very straightforward." It certainly sounds as though the project is shaping up to be an R-rated comedy to me. Amy Schumer is no strange to comedy, and while Jennifer Lawrence has definitely shown that she has a sense of humour, she hasn't yet had the chance to show her chops in a straight-up comedy so I'm looking forward to seeing what she can do.

Lawrence will next be seen in THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY - PART 2, the grand finale of THE HUNGER GAMES franchise, on November 20, 2015.

Amy Schumer is overhyped and overrated. She's not funny at all.

As opposed to??

Oh boy, calling a movie FUNNY, DIRTY and REAL makes me want to see this! I mean what else could it be? Who wants to see an Unfunny, Clean, Fake movie?

She is not funny at all

Amy is not funny, have not laughed watching her snl or her cable show. However I think her getting Lawrence to do this film with her will dramatically change the films comedy level. Thus giving the audience a larger illusion that Amy is funny.

Smart move by her

SNL is not the best example of Amy Schumer's comedy. Watch her stand-up or Inside Amy Schumer for a better idea. I realize she's not everyone's idea of funny, but I like her. And I like Jennifer Lawrence. And this will be interesting, even if it turns out not to be good. That's what I think.

Well...

If Amy Schumer is a part of it, I assure you that funny will be nowhere to be found.

All for it

I'd never seen anything Amy had done until Trainwreck, and that's still all I've seen, but I adored that movie. I saw past the shallow belief that it was "nothing but a woman who sleeps around," to what she was going through internally and why she couldn't let herself get close enough to people to have a real caring, loving, trusting relationship with anyone. Amy did a great job writing that one so I'm with her again. I love Jennifer and I think she's done a fine job of picking good

Maybe it's just me but I don't think Amy Schumer is funny. I haven't watched Trainwreck or any of her movie but I watched her in the new season of Saturday Night Live and she's not funny at all.

I have to agree. We watched her on SNL and the first episode of the season premiere of her cable show - didn't work for my wife or me. Her 'F**kable' skit was both boring and tasteless.

I haven't laughed at anything on SNL since about 1990 but I still find a lot of the players over the years good in the movies they're in. Sketch comedy just isn't my thing I guess.
