A snippet of my #MovieReview of #MikeAndDaveNeedWeddingDates: "The two leading males, #MikeAndDave, are played by the overly handsome #AdamDevine (Mike) and #ZacEfron (Dave). Their dates are played by the even more overly attractive #AubreyPlaza (Mike’s date) and #AnnaKendrick (Dave’s date). None of these four young stars are as funny as you’d think they are, and they each resort only to screaming like #drunk bozos to spice up the sleazy screenplay. They’re all unbearably annoying to watch, Anna Kendrick in particular. The supporting cast was equally as horrible, say for instance #SugarLynBeard, who plays the soon-to-be-married sister of Mike and Dave. She’s not exactly a “#BadActress,” she just has this annoying high-pitched voice that doesn’t even sound that natural.
But that’s not even the worst of it. No, the worst is yet to come.
There is no story, but rather a series of jokes that drag on and on and on without a clear punchline. Within the hour and thirty-eight minutes you’ll need to suffer through, a girl falls off a roof and gets seriously hurt, a building catches fire at a 4th of July party, a grandfather dies at his birthday celebration, a girl gets hit in the face by an all-terrain vehicle and is heavily bruised the day before her #wedding rehearsal, and all of these bits are intended to be the most #hilarious thing ever. But did I laugh? Well no, but the audience in my screening were hysterical throughout the entire movie, which makes me incredibly worried.
Emotional moments of redemption are attempted by the third act, but none of them are earned nor appropriate. The crazy events and #DirtyJokes all try to meet up in some sort of message about how life is not about getting the big things. Yeah, right. Just the number of 'should I really be laughing at this' type of jokes glamorizes the #romantic lifestyle rather than attacks it. So therefore, the redemption that this movie tries to get to is complete #BullCrap. In the end, Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates becomes exactly how it started as: a joke. It thinks that funny is about being rebellious and mischievous, but there’s no way that has any affect in the long run." #DoingItForJeanie #NSFW
