Trainwreck (2015)

Plot: Having thought that monogamy was never possible, a commitment-phobic career woman may have to face her fears when she meets a good guy. (IMDB)

Studio: Universal

Box Office: $110.2 million

1. Are there two or more named People of Color? Yes, but some of the cast play themselves onscreen (Lebron James, Amar’e Stoudemire)

2. Do they talk to each other? No

3. About something other than White people? No

4. Asian Bonus: Is there an Asian character? Yes

Passed? NO

Commentary: The film does include a diverse cast but many, such as the basketball players cast as themselves, are there as props to move the Aaron-Amy love plot along. The sports figures are never in scenes together (unless when playing in a game as background/with no dialogue).
