The two came out during Joel’s encore and jumped on the piano during his rendition of ‘Uptown Girl’.

The news broke this week that Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer are 100 pages into writing a comedy screenplay together, and that they plan to play sisters in the movie. "Amy and I were creatively made for each other," Lawrence says. "We have different flavours. It's been the most fun experience of my life."

It was only a month ago on The Daily Show that Schumer told Jon Stewart about the friendship, which started when Lawrence sent an email to Schumer after seeing her movie Trainwreck. Lawrence laughs about that message. "I said, 'I guess I should just say it: I'm in love with you,'" she explains. "We started emailing, and then emailing turned to texting. We really hit it off, to say the least."

Amy Schumer makes her big screen debut with a script that feels like a much-extended sketch from her TV series. It's hilariously observant and refreshingly grown-up about sex, but the plot falls back on the usual cliches. Even with some clever twists and turns, the structure is oddly predictable. But the biggest surprise is that Schumer and director Judd Apatow ultimately cave in and take a traditional approach to romance.
As she does on her show, Schumer plays a sexually frank woman called Amy. Taught by her father (Colin Quinn) to distrust monogamy, she has indulged in a commitment-free life, rarely seeing a man more than once. And her one repeat male partner (John Cena) is a rather too self-obsessed bodybuilder. Then her boss, blithely demanding magazine editor Diana (Tilda Swinton), assigns her to interview Aaron (Bill Hader), a doctor who specialises in sports injuries. Amy can't help but seduce him; it's what she does! But in the process she realises that she actually quite likes him. This idea so rattles her that she sabotages her close relationship with her sister Kim (Brie Larson), who is expecting a child with husband Tom (Mike Birbiglia).
Schumer has impeccable comic timing, and she's hilarious all the way through this film, playing on her character's riotous way of being shockingly honest at all the wrong times. In other words, the character is entertaining but never very likeable because of the thoughtless things she does and says. So our sympathies lie with Hader, who gives an unusually layered turn as a smart, sensitive and very funny guy who just might be too good for Amy. Other characters are either here to provide emotion (Larson and Quinn) or to shamelessly steal scenes (Swinton). And Apatow brings in a usual stream of big-name cameos, including Daniel Radcliffe and Marisa Tomei in a clever pastiche of a New York indie movie.
