Despite having a love/hate relationship with her scoundrel of a father Gordon Townsend, the one thing Amy Townsend has grown up believing from him is that monogamy isn't realistic, he and Amy's mom who broke up due to infidelity when Amy was young. As such, she gets drunk and stoned frequently in her pursuit of indiscriminate sex, with an unstated rule that there is no sleeping over once the sex is over. Her current "boyfriend", Steven, believes they are exclusive, not knowing that she sleeps with other men. Working at sensationalistic magazine S'nuff under head sensationalist Dianna, Amy is in line for a promotion, she certain to get it if her next story meets Dianna's scrutiny. That story is a profile of sports doctor to the stars, Dr. Aaron Conners, it despite Amy knowing nothing about sports. To Amy's amazement, Aaron wants to date her following their first sexual encounter, his sexual history in terms of quantity which is in extreme contrast to her own. Also to her amazement, she...Written by
For the montage of moments where Amy has a series of one-night stands, the original idea was showing all of them from Amy's point of view on the bed, with the guys on top of her. But Amy Schumer convinced the producers to shoot them like you see in the movie, with the character saying goodbye to them at the door, because the other way would make the audience think of her as slutty.

When Aaron and LeBron James are talking during their one-on-one game, Aaron is holding the ball at his side. But, in the next shot he's holding it in front of himself. This happens a couple more times in the space of a few seconds. See more »
Amy, is that wine in a box?
Mhmm. I have red too.
Guy in Back of Theater:
What the fuck, is this guy ever going to shut up?
Please watch the movie.
Please stop. No, that's not right, don't do this to me.
Why is he yelling?
Listen, you always do this to me. You show up to these places, you put me in a situation... I'm a big guy - everybody wants to fight the big guy.
Yeah you are!
Guy in Back of Theater:
Hey, Mark Wahlberg. Shut your bitch up.
Mar... Mark Wahlberg? Me?

The Amy/Donald bedroom scene ends differently in the FX Networks version. Instead of cursing when Donald's mother reveals his age, Amy protests, "He made me hit him!" Donald's mother yells at Amy to get out. As Amy leaves, Donald cries, "I only wanted to show her my writing!" See more »
And what a trainwreck it is! I have actually watched a few episodes of 'Inside Amy Schumer', laughing a few times and sitting there confused for most times. I understand how hard it is for a stand-up comic to not only star in, but write a comedy that lasts at least 90 minutes. However, with all my understandings I just didn't like this film. Small parts of it were kind of funny, but the rest of it was like a mashup of ideas that were trying hard to come together.
Hader was the only redeeming factor of the film. He acted with intent and knew the role he was playing. All the celebrity cameos (especially from some of the sports stars) seemed strained at the best of times. Amy herself is unrelatable. I don't understand why people are going crazy for her?? Is it because she is a female in a highly male dominated industry? I'm sure she truly is a funny person, but maybe test run these things a bit more before sending them out into the world.
