Amy Schumer is basically the older sister we never had. She’s got her hit Comedy Central show Inside Amy Schumer, which details the “basic white girl” in all of us.

She takes her act to the big screen with “Trainwreck” (which she wrote and stars) opposite Stefon Bill Hader in a light-hearted rom-com that definitely parallels our twenty-something lives. Her character, aptly named Amy, seems to be a clear version of herself (and, well, all of us who aren’t really ready to settle down). For someone who was told “monogamy isn’t realistic” at a young age, she’s sure lived up to that potential.

And judging from the trailer, this is one fantastic girls-night flick.

In reality, we’ve all got a little Amy in us. Here’s why:

1. She’s attempted to help her mother with technology


2. She wants to join Taylor’s squad too


3. She deals with the pain of waking up after a night out the same way we do 


4. She knows when you feel that 3 p.m. burnout at work


5. She knows what Disney culture is REALLY like



6. She notices the little things, and yet still doesn’t care

7. She’s a brutally honest best friend

8. She handles controversy like a BO$$

9. She’s obsessed with the Bachelorette So much that she went on this season

10. She is all of us at brunch

11. She makes hilarious versions of our favorite catchy boy band songs


BUT also sent a powerful message with a lot of #nomakeup selfies. 


12. She gives a big “EFF YOU” to Hollywood’s stick-thin standard


13. She’s not afraid to be the center of attention 

14. She knows what makes the best Friday night


Hannah Gettleman is a bubbly twenty-something living in Chicago. She graduated in 2012 from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with a degree in Journalism. Don't tell her that print is dying--she's already made the switch to public relations. As a Midwest girl, winter happens approximately 80% of the year, so she knows a thing or two about a good pair of snow boots. She lives for summer weather (even though she can never tan), Boy Meets World reruns, and an unhealthy addiction to dark chocolate and online shopping. She's a die-hard Chicago sports fan, even though she's well aware the Cubs always end up in last place every year.
