Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates

Critics 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.

  • Every so often in comedy, the filmmakers will get into a creative groove in which every scene is imaginative, almost unhinged and completely successful. This happens in Mike and Dave.

  • What can you say about a Hollywood comedy that features a "comedy" second-act rape sequence in a massage parlour?

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

  • Like watching an interesting hot person waste time on his embarrassingly mediocre, unfunny friends.

  • 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.

Audience Reviews for Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates

    Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates is a "comedy" that just feels tired. Everything here has been done before pretty much and to a better standard. Just a lazy attempt to get some money. Mike and Dave have been ordered to find dates before going to their sister's wedding. Firstly, how would getting two random dates keep these boys in check? This is what their father suggested! Secondly, there is no way that the family would pay for the flights and accommodation for these two random dates. Thirdly, two random dates to a family wedding? I mean really!? What if these dates never progressed? What would be the God damn point!! Meeting the whole family for nothing!!! Urghhhh it's such a silly premise. It would be fine if the script was poking fun out of itself but it's not, it's an entirely serious "comedy". Oh, whilst we're on the script, it was pretty terrible. Some jokes hit but it's a combination of drinking, dick and fingering jokes. I'll give the film credit, the whole scene set in the massage parlour and the ATV tour did make me laugh. So that's about 15 out of 100 minutes that were humorous. Not good enough. Zac Efron and Anna Kendrick are better than this (never thought I'd say that about Efron). They delivered well with what they were given so I have to give them credit. Aubrey Plaza plays the same "I'm drunk, horny and a bitch" role that she does for most comedies. Adam Devine...nothing divine about his performance (I'm so punny! (notice the pun in that as well)) it literally consisted of him screaming and yelling like a girl. Funny once perhaps, not thirty times. It sounds like I didn't enjoy it, it's actually watchable...if you turn your brain off. If you like crude, rude and dirty jokes then you'll enjoy this. I like to think my humour is better than that so this was not meant for me. That massage scene though...literally when those butt cheeks were rubbing together whilst swinging I proper cracked up!

    Dumb but well written and hilarious, with a great cast to boot.

    Based on a true story (of sorts), Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates is an extremely raunchy sex comedy. While it sports an impressive cast that includes Zac Efron, Adam Devine, Aubrey Plaza, and Anna Kendrick, the writing is atrociously bad. The plot's pretty much a standard rom-com vacation, with all the usual tropes and clichés that go with it. And the comedy is chock-full of gross-out sexual humor. Formulaic tripe, Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates is utterly pointless and vulgar.
