During the last 5 years, we have been seeing a boom of adult comedies with female characters (such as Bridesmaids, Sisters or The To Do List) which have "dared" to usurp the scatological humor usually reserved for male characters. However, that subversion of gender roles isn't an automatic guarantee of quality, as the horrible Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates proves so. That's a pity, because I'm an admirer of Adam DeVine, Aubrey Plaza and Anna Kendrick. However, they weren't able to do anything substantial with such a poor screenplay. Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates is one of those movies which employ vulgarity as an end in itself, without having genuine humor in its screenplay. And the least I say about the "dramatic" moments, in which the characters must learn something, or mature, or assume responsibilities for their actions, the better. In conclusion, the "female comedies" I mentioned on the beginning of this review are much better options than this piece of junk. However, Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates tries it everything, and that might work for other spectators. Each one will know his/her affinity or tolerance for movies like this one. Good experience or nightmare without an escape? That's a real life situation which should be adapted into a film. But without Zac Efron, please (No! I almost achieved not insulting him!).
