Mike And Dave Need Wedding Dates - Five Reasons You’ll Love It

Based on the real-life story of Mike and Dave Stangle, Zac Efron, Anna Kendrick, Aubrey Plaza and Adam Devine star in new bawdy comedy Mike And Dave Need Wedding Dates.

Efron and Devine play the Stangle brothers, a fun-loving pair who just don’t know when to stop when it comes to creating mischief and mayhem at their family parties, even when it ends in fire and explosions! With their sister Jeanie about to get married, their parents sit them down and demand that the pair find dates to make sure they behave themselves at the celebrations.

Their search lands them Kendrick’s Anna, recently jilted and in need of a good time, and Plaza’s Tatiana, who just loves to party. Initially it all goes swimmingly, but soon their dates prove to be way, way more than they bargained for...

The movie is out on DVD now (you can purchase it on the right-hand side of the page), but we caught an early screening and have rounded up five reasons you’ll love it…

 

It’s very, very funny…

It’s packed with killer one-liners and excellent set pieces, you’ll be laughing from beginning to end.

 

The chemistry between the four leads is excellent…

The success of movies like this comes down to the rapport between the leads and it’s brilliant here. They bounce off each other superbly.

 

But Aubrey Plaza steals the show…

Efron’s Dave, Devine’s Mike and Kendrick’s Alice are all on excellent form, but it’s Plaza who’s got the killer lines. Every time she’s on screen it’s a joy, she’s a truly unpredictable presence with hilarious consequences…

 

It looks beautiful…

The wedding takes place in Hawaii and if the local tourist board haven’t helped fund the movie we’ll be shocked, every location is stunning.

 

And keeps the schmaltz to a minimum…

There’s a bit of schmaltz, this being a wedding film and all, but it’s used very sparingly. This is a smart romantic comedy.

 

Mike And Dave Need Wedding Dates out now on DVD and is available here in hmv's online store.
