Mike And Dave Need Wedding Dates (2016)

Posted 18/11/2016 by Edward Davies in Comedy

Starring : Zac Efron, Anna Kendrick, Adam Devine, Aubrey Plaza, Stephen Root, Stephanie Faracy, Sugar Lyn Beard, Sam Richardson
Director : Jake Szymanski
Running Time : 99 mins

When their little sister Jeanie (Beard) announces she is getting married in Hawaii, Mike (Devine) and Dave (Efron) are challenged by their family not to ruin the occasion like they usually do and to bring dates to stop them acting out. So they advertise for the perfect dates online and meet Alice (Kendrick) and Tatiana (Plaza), two girls who seem perfect at first until their ulterior motives are revealed.

I actually really enjoyed this gross out comedy. It’s great to see decent comedy actors in the leads, and not just the male leads but the female leads too. I loved Plaza in Parks & Recreation, and Kendrick proves she can do comedy just as well as drama, but it’s Beard who manages to play understated comedy amongst all the over the top action, even though the scenes she’s involved in are often some of the most silly. Fans of classic slapstick will love this, although it does feature a lot of more modern visceral comedy too.

Verdict : 8/10
