[Review] Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates

9 July 2016 5:30 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Inspired by “true” events, Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates is a screwball comedy with the potential to edge towards a smarter farce. More favorable than a certain Adam Sandler Hawaiian vacation comedy, if at times no less offensive, the film delivers a few big laughs even if a few notes fall flat along the way. Operating at full throttle, web short and TV vet Jake Szymanski lets the inmates run the asylum while allowing Aubrey Plaza to break out of her shell; here she’s shed that awkwardness thanks to weed and booze.

The plot is as direct as can be. Dave (Zac Efron) and Mike Stangle (Adam DeVine) have ruined many a family affair with well-intentioned but disruptive antics and are given an ultimatum: their mom (Stephanie Faracy) and dad (Stephen Root) tell them to find nice, respectable girls to bring to their sister Jeanie’s (Sugar Lyn Beard) wedding or stay home. »

Mike And Dave Need Wedding Dates – Review

7 July 2016 7:32 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Summer’s in full swing with big family gatherings and social events. It’s the perfect time for some raunchy laughs at the multiplex. Eleven years ago (no, really!) R-rated movie comedies made a big, big comeback when Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson were Wedding Crashers. Four years later, the lead up to nuptials ignited a comic trilogy with The Hangover. Then the ladies got in on the act just two years later with Bridesmaids. This weekend’s new flick doles out a bit from all those entrees in the funny flick buffet, expanding on a comedy staple (or main course in the food analogy), namely the comic team. This doesn’t quite harken back to Stan and Ollie or Bud and Lou, rather the inspiration may be a bit over twenty years ago to Harry and Lloyd, those Dumb & Dumber dudes, continuing through Harold and Kumar, on to various unions of Rogen, »

Film Review: ‘Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates’

5 July 2016 3:03 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It’s fair to say that anyone who goes to see “Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates” will expect a certain amount of bang (pun intended) for their buck. The movie, after all, has “wedding” in the title (which, of course, is designed to get you to think of “Wedding Crashers”), and it’s got a poster that makes it look like its four lead characters are just waking up after a fraternity-bash bender from hell. The audience is sure to demand its quota of gross-out gags, gratuitous nudity, discombobulated druggie slapstick, dialogue sprinkled with over-the-top raunch, and at least one sequence in which a character we like gets seriously physically damaged. “Mike and Dave” offers all of that, so no one should walk away too disappointed, but the good news is that the movie, while it rambles on a bit, also has a gently nutty spirit that is often quite winning. »

Neighbors 2 Proves It Still Too Often Takes Men to Get a Woman's Story Told in Hollywood

24 May 2016 8:10 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Much to my surprise, Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising turned out to be a *gasp* feminist film . . . and I loved it. It made my heart sing as I sat in the theater watching the story unfold, complete with plenty of "you go, girl" moments. Much like Trainwreck or Bridesmaids, these young leading ladies (led by Chloë Grace Moretz, Kiersey Clemons, and Beanie Feldstein) finally played just as dirty as the boys. From selling weed to launching used tampons, the girls embrace bad behavior as they fight for their right to party. But why are they fighting exactly? "We don't throw parties here," a perky Selena Gomez tells her pledges at the beginning of the film. "In the United States, sororities are not allowed to throw parties in their own houses. Only frats can." She encourages everyone to google it. They do. This prompts Moretz's character and her friends to start their »
