Did You Know?

According to show-business trade-paper the Hollywood Reporter, the real life "Mike and Dave Stangle landed a film and book deal thanks to a friend (who happened to be a trainee at CAA) who spotted their viral ad on Craigslist . . . The Stangles, who are from Albany, N.Y., didn't just end up with wedding dates. They also landed book and film deals because of an unexpected CAA connection - a friend of theirs, Jay Barbeau, who was a trainee at the agency (and even slept on the Stangles' couch when he first moved to New York). After the Stangle brothers' ad went viral in 2013 and they began to get media attention, Barbeau, who now works in CAA's sports department, brought their story to the attention of fellow CAA agents Cait Hoyt and Michelle Weiner . . . CAA helped the Stangles sell their life rights in a seven-figure deal deal with Fox for a film that would be inspired by their story. Soon after, CAA also helped the Stangles ink a book deal with Gallery, a Simon & Schuster imprint, for a book based on their misadventures. The book, Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates: And a Thousand Cocktails, hit shelves on May 19 [2015]." See more »

User Review


Rating: 6/10

Some may know that I am a big fan of Zac Efron and his comedy line of movies and 'Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates' falls right along that line. This film had plenty of hilarious moments throughout and had me genuinely entertained with the amount of over-the-top humor it presented. On top of the moments, Anna Kendrick, Zac Efron, Adam Devine, and Aubrey Plaza did a great job every moment they were on screen, bringing the laughs every chance they could. I have been waiting to see Anna Kendrick let loose on screen for a while and with this film and also 'Get A Job', it was awesome to finally see that. Adam Devine is naturally ridiculous with every on-screen shot and never fails to get a laugh out of a crowd and even his co-stars (See gag reel at the end of the film). Although hilarious, an avid movie lover will notice the pointless and utterly ridiculous plot and sometimes way over-the-top antics. Regardless, this is just another raunchy comedy fit for mindless entertainment. I am a fan and if you like movies like 'Neighbors' or 'Dirty Grandpa', it will be one you will be a fan of too.
