Zac Efron, Adam DeVine, Anna Kendrick, and Aubrey Plaza star in this stick of comedy dynamite about two idiot brothers who need wedding dates.
This comedy follows the trail that movies like Wedding Crashers and The Wedding Singer have blazed. That is, it's a comedy about all of the antics that can occur when two people are tying the knot. Mike and Dave takes a new slant on this premise because instead of focusing on just the two moron brothers, viewers are also treated to the antics of the eponymous wedding dates Aubrey Plaza and Anna Kendrick, who are also horrible people.
In addition to the fresh take on a comedy staple, the script is strong as hell and the delivery of the lines are solid gold. This shouldn't be a surprise when the four lead actors are all comedy veterans with appearances in massively successful projects on their own. Supplementing this all-star lineup is a slew of great cameos. Pretty much every scene has a famous comedian in a cameo, including Marc Maron, Kumail Nanjiani, and Jake Johnson.
Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates has high re-watchability as many of the jokes come not from the surprise of the punch but in the over the top way that they are delivered. Everyone chews on the scenery the entire time, moving effortlessly from falsetto and shouting and back again. It has all the makings of a classic.
