Two struggling pals dress as police officers for a costume party and become neighborhood sensations. But when these newly-minted "heroes" get tangled in a real life web of mobsters and dirty detectives, they must put their fake badges on the line.
All the couples are back for a wedding in Las Vegas, but plans for a romantic weekend go awry when their various misadventures get them into some compromising situations that threaten to derail the big event.
Doug Harris (Josh Gad) is a lovable but socially awkward groom-to-be with a problem: he has no best man. With less than two weeks to go until he marries the girl of his dreams (Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting), Doug is referred to Jimmy Callahan (Kevin Hart), owner and CEO of Best Man, Inc., a company that provides flattering best men for socially challenged guys in need. What ensues is a hilarious wedding charade as they try to pull off the big con, and an unexpected budding bromance between Doug and his fake best man Jimmy. Written by

I'm not a massive fan of modern comedies. I'm a traditional comedy guy, and my favourite comedies are things such as Planes, Trains & Automobiles and Dumb & Dumber. Comedies with a bit of heart and not just cracking gags for the sake of it, meaning it comes off desperate or just over the top.
Luckily, this movie was really surprising, as it made me laugh on several occasions. Kevin Hart is a funny guy, and Josh Gad does a decent job too. Think it made me laugh more to hear Olaf swearing.
I watched this on the off chance, as I had nothing else to watch so I put it on, and it did grab my attention. Most comedies are just background movies when I'm doing something, but I focused on this as I enjoyed it. There seemed to be a heart to this film, and the comedic bits were choreographed a lot better than many other movies boast. Yes it was clichéd, yes it was typical Hollywood, but to be honest, as long as it makes you laugh, that's all that matters. None of the laughs seemed forced, and don't get me wrong it wasn't perfect, but it did give me enjoyment for an hour and a half.
Kevin Harts best movie without doubt, much better than Get Hard.
