  • Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates is a "comedy" that just feels tired. Everything here has been done before pretty much and to a better standard. Just a lazy attempt to get some money. Mike and Dave have been ordered to find dates before going to their sister's wedding. Firstly, how would getting two random dates keep these boys in check? This is what their father suggested! Secondly, there is no way that the family would pay for the flights and accommodation for these two random dates. Thirdly, two random dates to a family wedding? I mean really!? What if these dates never progressed? What would be the God damn point!! Meeting the whole family for nothing!!! Urghhhh it's such a silly premise. It would be fine if the script was poking fun out of itself but it's not, it's an entirely serious "comedy". Oh, whilst we're on the script, it was pretty terrible. Some jokes hit but it's a combination of drinking, dick and fingering jokes. I'll give the film credit, the whole scene set in the massage parlour and the ATV tour did make me laugh. So that's about 15 out of 100 minutes that were humorous. Not good enough. Zac Efron and Anna Kendrick are better than this (never thought I'd say that about Efron). They delivered well with what they were given so I have to give them credit. Aubrey Plaza plays the same "I'm drunk, horny and a bitch" role that she does for most comedies. Adam Devine...nothing divine about his performance (I'm so punny! (notice the pun in that as well)) it literally consisted of him screaming and yelling like a girl. Funny once perhaps, not thirty times. It sounds like I didn't enjoy it, it's actually watchable...if you turn your brain off. If you like crude, rude and dirty jokes then you'll enjoy this. I like to think my humour is better than that so this was not meant for me. That massage scene though...literally when those butt cheeks were rubbing together whilst swinging I proper cracked up!
