Trainwreck - ITV2

In a raucous, taboo-busting comedy, writer-star Amy Schumer plays a hard-partying singleton in New York

In a raucous, taboo-busting comedy, writer-star Amy Schumer plays a hard-partying singleton in New York.

She lets rip with a barrage of rude gags as her boozy writer for a men's magazine tears through a series of riotous one-night stands and misadventures.

However, once she begins dating good-natured sports doctor Bill Hader, director Judd Apatow steers the film into much more conventional romcom territory.

Still, Schumer delivers big laughs throughout, as do Tilda Swinton, unrecognisable beneath an orange tan and flowing dirty-blonde wig as her ruthless editor, and US basketball star LeBron James, as a Downton Abbey-loving version of himself.

Look out, too, for droll cameos from Daniel Radcliffe and Marisa Tomei in a black-and-white film within the film.
