Near the end of the movie when Anna Kendrick is lying on the white bench in one shot you can see her bare feet while the very next shot she can be seen wearing pink flip flops. The last shot she can be seen with bare feet again. Also, when Anna Kendrick tackles Zack Effron on the picnic bench, her bare foot can be seen. In the next shot, she is wearing pink flip flops.

One time I saw a movie, then walked across the hall and saw another movie. And I didn't even pay until afterwards.

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!).
