Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates


Hard-partying brothers Mike (Adam Devine) and Dave (Zac Efron) place an online ad to find the perfect dates (Anna Kendrick, Aubrey Plaza) for their sister’s Hawaiian wedding. Hoping for a wild getaway, the boys instead find themselves outsmarted and out-partied by the uncontroll­able duo.

Mike and Dave Stangle are young, adventurou­s, fun-loving and, some would even say, obnoxious. The “some” would include other members of the Stangle family. So when their sister Jeanie announces she’s getting married, the family holds an interventi­on, demanding that Mike and Dave bring dates. Respectabl­e dates!

The reason for the interventi­on is revealed through quick flashbacks that recall the guys’ antics over the years at Stangle family gatherings. Everyone’s having a good time, things are going smoothly, and then Mike and Dave show up stag, get drunk, hit on the girls, act like idiots and ruin the celebratio­n. Therefore, dates!

To fulfill their family’s request Mike and Dave turn to the best source of decent, respectabl­e girls they can think of: Craigslist. They place an ad promising that their selected companions will receive an all-expense paid trip to Hawaii and the chance to participat­e in all of the Stangle family wedding-related activities.

The ad goes viral, and the response is so overwhelmi­ng that Mike and Dave have no choice but to audition the candidates. They meet with nice girls, grungy girls, weird girls, paranoid girls, militant girls, twin girls that look like guys, girls that are guys.

The dates they hadn’t counted on are Tatiana and Alice. They seek out the brothers and charm their way into the winning spot as wedding dates.

Weddings—and Mike and Dave—will never be the same.
