Rapid Review: Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates

Mike_and_Dave_Need_Wedding_Dates

As the self explainitary title suggests Mike (Adam DeVine) and Dave (Zac Efron) need respectable wedding dates for their sister’s wedding. As they don’t know where to find such girls they put an ad on Craigslist (strangely that part is based on a true story). Their prayers are answered when they meet two seemingly clean cut girls, Tatiana (Aubrey Plaza) and Alice (Anna Kendrick). Howver these girls may be more trouble then the boys can handle.

Ok so Mike and Dave Need Weeding Dates is not big and it’s not clever but it did make me laugh. The four leads gamely give the film their all, DeVine and Plaza get most of the rudest material while Efron and Kendrick get the more likeably sweet but still badly behaved characters. I enjoyed the fact that the girls are as outrageous (and maybe even worse) than the boys and provide just as much laughs with their antics.

However the laughs do overly rely on crude humour, sex jokes and nudity to get laughs, which becomes a bit repetitive over the course of the movie. If it could have tried to branch out in it’s humour it would have been more successful. But then nobody who saw the trailers were probably expecting highbrow humour.

Rating 3/5 – rude and crude, probably best enjoyed on a night out with your friends

  1. Sounds like there’s a good film in there somewhere.
