Not funny, and not as raunchy as you'd expect
23 January 2017 | by jadavixSee all my reviews

Zac Efron is uncommonly pretty for a man. He is so good looking, in fact, that I don't believe he works as a lead. His face is a punchline for a joke "Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates" never supplies. The movie seems to be going for the dynamic that "Mike and Dave" are funny together because Dave is much better looking than Mike, and Mike is more of an obnoxious goofball while Dave is the romantic pretty boy. In fact, Adam Devine as Mike is actually very handsome by anyone's estimation, and the chemistry between the two guys just isn't funny. They give it their all in scenes where you want to applaud them for their chutzpah, even if you aren't laughing while doing it.

Aubrey Plaza and Anna Kendrick, though? They're funny. It's too bad the movie doesn't really know what to do with them. It doesn't know whether to make them the shameless party girls the plot requires, or cave into the expectations of the audience and have them be the perfect role models women in movies these days always are. For one thing, the movie hedges around sex. Plaza and Kendrick play trainwrecks who love drinking, drugging, getting wasted and watching porno together. But there is nary a mention of their sex lives; a major plot point is made of the Plaza character leading on Devine's Mike, but resolving never to have sex with him. What's the point of the lead on? And are we expected to believe that these too party girls draw the line at sex? Why would they – or is this just the filmmakers condescending to us, assuming we'll be put off by girls who are promiscuous?

In fact, for a supposedly raunchy comedy, the movie seems fairly puritanical about sex in general. The presence of Maron, Nanjiani and Crawford all spelt a good time, but only Nanjiani gets a memorable scene. Perhaps, as he lost weight, Crawford also lost his gift for comedy?
