Zac Efron and Anna Kedrick are both fine here, but the film certainly isn't asking them to do anything special. Adam Devine and Aubrey Plaza, on the other hand, are playing the same comedic schtick we're used to seeing from them. While neither have reached the levels of Rebel Wilson annoyance yet, they're walking that fine line of becoming nearly unwatchable with their repetitive attempts at laughs. Plaza, in particular, with her deadpan, sarcastic, nonemotional delivery of every joke is starting to wear thin with this reviewer.
Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates has its moments, but they're too few and far between. In the end, it's just not funny enough to recommend.
The RyMickey Rating: C-
