Mike & Dave Need Wedding Dates – A Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Okay so I have mixed feelings here.  Mike & Dave Need Wedding Dates is far from terrible.  In fact at times when it does make you laugh it’s REALLY funny, the problem is those moments happen very rarely and falls somewhat short of the Kermode 6 Laughs test.  This makes it a very hard film to recommend.  Kendrick, Effron and co are charming enough, if a bit annoying at times, but you cant help but think we’ve seen this all before a hundred times.

Best Bit: Steam room & massage

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
For the second time this month a sequel has impressed me more than an original.  Yup whilst I enjoyed Bad Neighbours i gave it just a 6/10 back in the day.  Not bad.  Yet somehow Bad Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising is actually a better film.  It’s funnier, it’s cleverer, it has more charm and it has a great ongoing dildo joke.  No really.  But as with a lot of comedies it the cast that makes it and  once again proving herself to be a very versatile actress Chloe Grace-Mortez shines here whilst, along with Zac Efron, managing to steal almost every scene she’s in. The jokes work, the film doesn’t outstay it’s welcome and it smashes Kermode’s six laugh test with ease.  Great fun.

Best Bit: Dildo gag.
