TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates benefits from the screwball premise and the efforts of a game cast, even if the sporadically hilarious results don't quite live up to either.

It's like riding a roller coaster fueled by Red Bull and grain alcohol: kind of gross but pretty fun, too.

A fine cast goes to waste in this risk-free and cliché-riddled comedy, loosely based on a true story.

has the jumpy exuberance of a puppy that won't stop humping your leg. It's a bummer that the jokes don't land often enough.

Rolling Stone
Top Critic

There's nothing clever here. The filmmakers believe that broad, obvious gags, pratfalls, and profanity-laced tirades are inherently funny. They're not.

Doesn't even convincingly craft its own internal reality. There are no rules or character motivations, words come out of Zac Efron's mouth when it isn't moving, and Anna Kendrick's wig changes color seemingly at random.

You never quite believe these women belong with Devine and Efron's Hollywood-generic douche bags -- it feels like a failure of the script, if not the entire industry. If you don't think about it too hard, you won't hate it.

Audience Reviews for Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates

½

Lots of energy and slapdash humor nearly disguise the see-through plot and the hit or miss nature of the proceedings. "Maybe this'll be one of those that get better with age," I thought.

Mike and Dave need better roles. DeVine and Plaza were the only players even remotely humorous and the script was more formulaic than a trigonometry midterm exam. Lighting and sound were good but there was nothing particularly funny or interesting about this film to make it anything more than marginally amusing.

Zac Efron and Adam Devine play hysterical party-hardy brothers who always take family functions one step too far. When their parents insist they bring nice girls as dates to their sister's wedding, they get more than they bargained for in DGAF Tatiana and stoner Alice. Aubrey Plaza is hot and mean, and that diddlin' Cousin Terry fiasco with subsequent smartphone gestures bit is subversively hilarious. Alice Wetterlund as aforementioned Cousin Terry is an awesome androgynous fashionplate. I wasn't quite sure what Anna Kendrick was trying to play at first: dumb, stoned, or heartbroken. Her blossoming relationship with Dave is nice, but I guess I just didn't connect with her story or performance. Sugar Lyn Beard (yep) really steals the show as the little sister Jeanie: getting pummeled in the face by an ATV tire; being repeatedly butt-humped (runner up: rump-slapped) to ecstasy by oiled and ponytailed Kumail Nanjiani; tripping on actual ecstasy and unleashing that merkin. Props, girl.
