Undeniable chemistry from the lead cast, but everything else is just mind numbing.
13 September 2016 | by yuschaaSee all my reviews

Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates is inspired by a true story of Mike and Dave Stangle, in which they post an ad looking for dates for a wedding. Hilarity ensues when their dates turned out to be not who they appear to be.

From the poster and the premise alone, you should know that this movie is going to be your typical comedy movie you watch while you were doing something else, say getting high, background noise, or even better: 10 minutes before you get down with your date. Most of the comedy works with zero context. I can see why this movie wasn't funny for some audiences, but one thing the movie knows and does it well: it knows who their target audiences are and they've done a pretty good job pandering to them.

The movie has mediocre points at editing and scoring. The cast chemistry is definitely undeniable, but their potentials are so much wasted. All the lead actors have amazing comedic timing and can deliver lines suited to their talents, but the script and the scenes just doesn't show it. It's a shame since I watched this movie because I liked all the lead actors in it.

However, the good points of the movie stopped right there. If you're looking for a quality comedy, you might want to look somewhere else. Filled with boring overdone clichés, unlikable characters, and predictable character development, the movie just paints its own doom as the hours went by.

It was a fun mindless comedy, but everything else is just mind numbing.
