Even in a summer jam-packed with superheroes, dinosaurs, and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, comedian Amy Schumer made a huge impression with her film debut, Trainwreck. Loosely inspired by Schumer’s own life, the Judd Apatow-directed comedy has some fun flipping the notions of the traditional rom-com and assembles an insane cast, including Bill Hader, Tilda Swinton, Brie Larson, and a scene-stealing LeBron James. In his review, Jesse Hassenger praised the film, stating that it has “much bigger laughs and more resonant emotion than the genre has seen in a while.” Whether you’re already a fan or just want to know what everyone’s been talking about, you’ll be able to get your hands on it tomorrow, when the film becomes available on Blu-ray and DVD.

Since she was a little girl, Amy (Amy Schumer) has been taught that monogamy isn’t realistic. Now a magazine writer, Amy lives by that credo, enjoying an uninhibited life free from stifling, boring romantic commitment. But when she finds herself starting to fall for the subject of a new article she’s writing, a charming and successful sports doctor (Bill Hader), Amy starts to wonder if other grown-ups, including this guy who really seems to like her, might be onto something.
