Amy Schumer goes from the little screen to the big one as the star of Trainwreck, a comedy by her and director Judd Apatow. She plays a woman who was damaged by her father’s perspective and instructions on love: to never, ever, go monogamous. Working by day at a shallow men’s magazine and by night getting drunk and hooking up with random one night stands, her life is a mess to anyone on the outside but she thinks she’s doing fine. At least, until she’s given an assignment to do a story about a sports doctor that all the big players go to (Bill Hader). They have a hook up and then…he won’t let her get away that easily. No one has ever fought so hard against falling in love as Amy Schumer in this (apparently) somewhat autobiographical story that comes with a lot of laughs.

Which isn’t to say that the Unusual Suspects all agreed on this one. You’ve got JC, Beau and Ashley in this corner, and Chris in the other. The combat begins now.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
