This could be a first for Washington: When someone refers to "Schumer," it may now require clarification. The senator or the comedian?
With the Friday opening of the Amy Schumer comedy "Trainwreck," the aspiring Senate Democratic leader, Sen. Charles E. Schumer, might find himself eclipsed by his cousin, who stars, wrote and produced the Judd Apatow flick. Why? Well, to start with, it's hilarious. The movie, that is. The story of a hard-partying journalist (somewhat of a redundancy, yes) who falls for a nice-guy sports doctor played by Bill Hader is a raunchy romp that follows well in the footsteps of other New York comedies of manners, substance abuse and sex such as "Manhattan," "When Harry Met Sally" and "Sex and the City."
