Thank You For Your Service Trailer


Adam Schumann was part of one of the first Infantry Battalions to head into the brutal city of Baghdad at a stage in the battle where their enemies were far from easy to be seen. The troops would patrol the streets in their hummers and attempt to protect the citizens whilst also fighting the enemy. 

Bombs were common place and they were not made to be seen before it was too late. Adam was one of the soldiers who often identified potentially hostile and dangerous areas before the rest of the battalion entered.

Many friends fell in numerous battles and when their time on the front had ended, the surviving men and women serving returned to the US and attempted to rejoin a 'normal' day to day form of life. Finally on US soil, Adam is greeted home by his wife and their two young girls.  Saskia and the girls are delighted to have Adam back and arrange a little welcome home party. The love between the couple is still easy to see but Saskia becomes more and more aware that her husband is more distant than he was before. Going to bed late, waking early and often having bad flashbacks are a daily reoccurrence. Wishing to protect his family from the horrors he's experienced, Adam distances himself from his wife.

Amy Schumer And Goldie Hawn Found A Shared Sense Of Humour


Amy Schumer Goldie Hawn

When she began working on her new comedy Snatched, about a mother and daughter who are kidnapped while on holiday in Ecuador, Amy Schumer only had one person in mind to play her mother. "It was always Goldie Hawn," Schumer says. "As someone who has loved her my whole life, to have her want to work with me and be in scenes with her is amazing. I never even dreamed of something like that for myself."

It was two years ago that Schumer first approached Hawn with the idea. She spotted her while they were on a flight together. "She was a couple rows ahead of me," Schumer says. "I just kinda creepily stared at her the whole flight." She finally got up the nerve to talk to her after the plane landed.

Amy Schumer Branded Racist For 'Formation' Beyonce Parody


Amy Schumer

The internet has reacted with fury over Amy Schumer's recent parody of Beyonce's 'Formation', directed by Marcus Russell Price and featuring Goldie Hawn, Joan Cusack and Wanda Sykes, which hit Tidal on Friday (October 21st 2016). In it she does her best Beyonce moves while scantily clad and covered in dirt.

The parody video for Beyonce's 'Lemonade' single was shot on the set of Schumer's 'Mother/Daughter' comedy project which is coming soon. It wasn't necessarily the video that has caused people to lash out, more the choice of song. Some are saying that it was insensitive to pick a song to lampoon that is specifically about black culture. For this reason, people have also directed their anger at Jay Z for allowing the video to be streamed on subscription music service, and at Wanda Sykes for being a part of it.

'Trainwreck' Star Amy Schumer Turns Wedding Crasher During Ireland Visit

Trainwreck Review

Good

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.
