Amy Schumer (screenplay and leading role)

Dating Queen (original title: Trainwreck (in German: Zugwrack , figuratively an absolute fiasco )) is an American comedy film from 2015 . Directed by Judd Apatow , the screenplay was written by lead actress Amy Schumer . This is the first Apatow film that is not based on one of his own scripts. The film premiered on March 16, 2015 at the South by Southwest Film Festival . It was released in US cinemas on July 17, 2015 and in German cinemas on August 13, 2015. A version that was around four minutes longer was published as an Extended Edition on Blu-ray Disc .


At the age of nine, Amy found out from her father Gordon why he wanted to separate from her mother: He thought monogamy was unrealistic.

Years later she works as an editor for a men's magazine in New York. Her boss Dianne gives her the job of writing an article about the sports medicine specialist Dr. Aaron Conners, although she hates sports. Instead, Amy prefers to drink, loves parties, and often has one night stands. After many dates, her admirer Steve hopes in vain for a steady relationship and is shocked to her confession to the many male contacts on her cell phone.

At the time, Amy was more preoccupied with the situation of her father, who had moved to a nursing home because of multiple sclerosis . Together with her sister Kim, she takes care of the now vacant house. Kim is disappointed in her father, who was drunk all his life, neglected his family and cheated on him. She would love to dispose of all his belongings, but Amy steps in. When Amy Dr. Conners meets for an appointment meeting, he soon reveals her to be a grumpy sportsman. During the interview, she begins to hyperventilate when Kim sends her a message. Her father is supposed to move to a cheaper nursing home. Dr. Conners takes care of the broken up Amy. The two of them go out to eat, then to a bar and finally to his home. For the first time after sex, Amy breaks her rule not to stay with her lover.

Aaron gets Amy to put her fears of commitment aside when he stands by her the next day when her father falls in the clinic. Both begin a relationship that is initially very harmonious. When her father dies, he is by her side to support her. Aaron realizes that Amy is having some problems, but the situation escalates during an awards show. While giving an audience speech, Dianne threatens Amy to fire her if she doesn't answer her phone. Without a choice, Amy leaves the room, which in retrospect leads to an argument between her and her partner. Completely tired from the nightly argument, Aaron cancels an important operation the next day. He asks Amy to take a break from the relationship until the operation is over. However, she responds to his words with complete isolation and insists on ending the relationship.

After Amy loses her job because she ends up drunk in bed with Dianne's underage employee, she seeks contact with her pregnant sister. A conversation with her stepson makes it clear that she still loves Aaron. She decides to prove to him that she wants to try to have a serious relationship with him. To win him back, she rehearses a dance with the cheerleaders of a basketball team, and Aaron gives in when he reaches his favorite song Uptown Girl. They both decide to give their relationship another chance.
