    One might call Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates director Jake Szymanski's feature debut and to a degree I guess that's correct as this is his first film getting a wide theatrical release (and his first that runs over an hour), but Szymanski is no stranger to comedy or the space in which it occupies in Hollywood. In fact, Szymanski turned Andy Samberg's rather thin idea for a 30 for 30 parody into a rather entertaining forty-five minutes last summer. All of this doesn't necessarily mean that Mike and Dave is anything more than one might expect it to be (it's not) and despite sounding like one of those straight to VHS American Pie knock-offs where you might find Tara Reid and the chubby kid from The Sandlot working not-so hard to earn a paycheck, Mike and Dave actually delivers on the promises and premise that have been set up in its marketing. Though it might seem obvious that 20th Century Fox would like to make something of a comedic brand out of Mike and Dave (Mike & Dave Go to London, Mike and Dave Take the World) it somewhat feels as if Szymanski and writers Andrew Jay Cohen and Brendan O'Brien feel the opposite. Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates is very much a contained story that gives our main cast of characters defined arcs that take them from one clear point in their lives to the next. What is nice about what both the writers and Szymanski do though is that they don't allow this transformative period to completely define these characters. The titular siblings are still very much who they were in the beginning of the movie at the end of the movie save for the fact they've learned a few lessons and earned some perspective. What I'm saying is that Mike and Dave doesn't turn into a fable of some kind where the intent of the film is to teach its characters and audience a lesson, but rather is more about the challenges and obstacles presented in a certain situation and how a specific type of person deals in the messes they've made. This is undoubtedly the films strongest trait in that it doesn't become wholly what we expect though it is mostly the obtrusive and familiar raunchy comedy you hoped it would be if you bought a ticket in the first place. That said, Mike and Dave delivers some modest pleasures for, despite largely adhering to the beats of the genre, it excels in hitting those beats through a likable and appealing cast.

    Goofy comedy with a bit of heart?

    The title pretty much explains the movie. Two brothers who have a rather bad habit of ruining big family events like weddings and birthdays are in the doghouse with their parents. While their sister wants them to come to her wedding, she doesn't want them coming alone to try and hit on her bridesmaids. If they can't come with dates, they aren't allowed to come at all. Since they do love their little sister, the overgrown children come up with a plan to find dates that their family would approve of. Unfortunately for them, 2 girls that are as bad as they are learn of the trip and pretend to be the women that would be the perfect fit. From there on, the movie goes through the various adventures of the characters often ending poorly, even while the two dates do their best to avoid being discovered for who they are. It is funny, but some of the humor will be considered in poor taste and there is some nudity so not for the kids. Good for some laughs (and a few groans too).

    This movie is outrageous, inappropriate, PC incorrect, raunchy stupid slapstick, so over the top that it shouldn't work but, by some miracle mixed with such enthusiastic commitment from everyone involved, this thing fires on all cylinders. It has the same OMG powerhouse energy of classics like THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT MARY. Forget credibility and good taste, surrender to its shocking insanity, and you'll treat yourself to one hysterical coronary of a good time.

    I did not have high expectations when I purchased this. Did so more for my son than for myself however, I was very impressed. It was so funny, I watched it 3 times the first week! It made me laugh so hard. And this blu ray is packed with so of the best supplemental extras. I can see this being my go to "cheer myself up" movie for quite some time.

    The movie is hilarious, furthermore this stuff can really happen, so I feel there is some reality with this movie. The Blu-ray/DVD combo is also a plus since our vehicle has a rear DVD screen and the Blu-ray's are convenient for home use, thank you and keep up the good work please!

    This movie is almost exactly what you would expect from the Seth Rogen era of comedy, drug jokes, dirty jokes, awkward moment humor. Although the movie is very funny if you are into that kind of humor. If you like the cast and just want to have a night of laughs, for sure check this movie out. You will have a good time.

    This one seems like a very funny romantic type comedy. Pick it up as a new release at the good sales price. Haven't had a change to view the entire movie yet, but first glance it appears to be just a standard funny comedy. Some will like it and some will not; so far early views it is one I believe to be enjoyable

    Anna Kendrick, Aubrey Plaza, and Adam Divine are all brilliant comedic talents, and Zac Efron has proven himself time and again to be an extremely talented comedic actor. Both duos have wonderful chemistry with each other, and other cast members (Sam Richardson in particular) keep up with the pace.

    I like everyone in the cast. They all naturally have good chemistry. While the cast is game, the writing is not always game winning! There are no truly big laughs. There are some pretty funny moments. There are enough moments for this likable cast to grab a hold on and squeeze out a workable comedy.

    I'm a big fan of ZAC EFFRONS work, so I buy all his films. This is a light and fun movie, the story is interesting and I had a good time. Dont expect Oscar material, but if you want to smile and titalated - this is for you! ZAC is hot and spends a lot of time shirtless - that's good enough for me!

    My wife and I bought this movie on a whim, not knowing anything about it other than the fact it had some our favorite comedians in it. If you like non-stop slap shtick humor, this is the movie to watch!!! The 4K HDR was also very noticeable on our LG 4K 55" TV. Go out and get this movie!!

    I missed this when it originally came out, but I really like all of the actors in this movie, so I gave it a try. There is nothing groundbreaking about the story, but it does have some good laughs and overall it holds up.

    For the price of this DVD, it is an OK purchase. However, it is a movie devoid of substance and the viewer will realize that even for a comedy. it is not really funny. Consider it light entertainment for a modest evening of diversion.

    I'm glad this set came with a slipcover because it protected the Blu-ray set. While the movie is not all means perfect, the video and audio quality are wonderful. Plus, the extras are hilarious especially to those who enjoyed the film.

    Like most comedies now a days this movie can be ridiculous at times but its definitely fun to watch. Anna Kendrick is amusing and even in this role adorable. The 4 of them have a fun chemistry between them that makes it easy to watch. Enjoyable movie.

    It's funny, I laughed a lot. It reminds me of the American pie series and specifically American Wedding... Basically you have a couple of stifflers for brothers and they get a couple of female stifflers for wedding dates and let the tragedy ensue.

    Picked this up because it was on sale, and I love Turtle Bay. I love Workaholics so I'm a fan of Adam Devine's style of humor, and though this is no Forgetting Sarah Marshall, I found it funny enough for the price, and it has some nice shots of Hawaii.

    I have to admit that I was skeptical about seeing this movie at the theater. However after renting the movie I knew I had made a mistake. This is a very funny movie and I just had to own it so I bought it at Best Buy. You won't regret buying it too!
