User Reviews

Another over-the-top comedy to mindlessly enjoy
7 July 2016 | by OberratedSee all my reviews

Some may know that I am a big fan of Zac Efron and his comedy line of movies and 'Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates' falls right along that line. This film had plenty of hilarious moments throughout and had me genuinely entertained with the amount of over-the-top humor it presented. On top of the moments, Anna Kendrick, Zac Efron, Adam Devine, and Aubrey Plaza did a great job every moment they were on screen, bringing the laughs every chance they could. I have been waiting to see Anna Kendrick let loose on screen for a while and with this film and also 'Get A Job', it was awesome to finally see that. Adam Devine is naturally ridiculous with every on-screen shot and never fails to get a laugh out of a crowd and even his co-stars (See gag reel at the end of the film). Although hilarious, an avid movie lover will notice the pointless and utterly ridiculous plot and sometimes way over-the-top antics. Regardless, this is just another raunchy comedy fit for mindless entertainment. I am a fan and if you like movies like 'Neighbors' or 'Dirty Grandpa', it will be one you will be a fan of too.
