MIKE AND DAVE NEED WED­DING DATES ★★

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS | FILM -

Di­rected by Jake Szy­man­ski. Star­ring Zac Efron, Anna Kendrick, Adam DeVine, Aubrey Plaza, Stephen Roo If there’s any­thing worse than a com­edy that’s never re­motely funny it’s a com­edy that is con­stantly within a hairs­breadth of be­com­ing funny. It must take some do­ing to re­strain this cast from gen­er­at­ing laughs, but, in his de­but fea­ture, Jake Szy­man­ski has man­aged just that. Efron and DeVine plays two broth­ers who take Kendrick and Plaza to their sis­ter’s wed­ding. Too much in­dul­gent im­pro­vi­sa­tion fol­lows. 16 cert, gen re­lease, 98 min DC
