Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates is a breezy R rated comedy that hits most of the right beat even if it doesn’t reinvent the wheel. Its cast is loaded with excellent comedic actors. Adam Devine and Zac Efron’s on screen chemistry is readily apparent which really helps the film along. Anna Kendrick and Aubrey Plaza are just as funny even if they aren’t quite believable as the characters. Kendrick in particular seems to have to a hard time taking to the role but she’s still pretty funny through out the film. There aren’t many surprises throughout the whole thing since it follows a pretty predictable path but you shouldn’t be expecting some massive innovation in the genre. Still it does it’s main job and makes you laugh during most of it’s economical run time.
