Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates 2016

     Mike and Dave have a sit-down at their parents’ house with their sister Jeanie and her husband-to-be Eric.  Their father Burt and mother Rosie have compiled footage of the times Mike and Dave have wrecked family gatherings.  Mike and Dave would have denied any wrongdoing but there is pictorial proof!!  With Jeanie and Eric’s marriage happening soon, their relatives advise Mike and Dave to bring dates to the wedding.  They don’t want to see them ogling and flirting with women at the event and causing their regular devastation!!  The guys set out to follow all the rules but will their dates Alice and Tatiana cooperate? 
     This film has an R rating for crude sexual content, language, drug use, some nudity and violence.  I think this move would’ve been better and had a larger audience without some of these items?  I basically ignored a LOT of these instances and concentrated on the mess-ups of the guys and their dates.  The bride adds some of her own drama into the mix.  3 ½* (I liked this movie)

98 min, Adventure directed by Jake Szymanski with Zac Efron, Adam Devine, Anna Kendrick, Aubrey Plaza, Stephen Root, Stephanie Faracy, Sugar Lyn Beard, Sam Richardson, Alice Wetterlund, Lavell Crawford.

Note:  Imdb 6.0 out of 10, 35% critic 54% audience on Rotten Tomatoes, Roger Ebert 1 ½*, Amazon 4.2* out of 5* with 205 reviews.  Jake Szymanski previously directed segments of Saturday Night Live.
