When The Hangover made nearly half-a-billion dollars around the world, two things happened. We got more Hangover movies and we got more R-rated comedies. No surprise there. When it comes to Hollywood, success chases success. What's been particularly noteworthy about the post-Hangover raunch boom, however, is that they're not all just Hangover rip-offs where it's a bunch of dudes getting wasted and doing stupid things.
Now we also have raunchy comedies where guys and gals get wasted and do stupid things! And the latest in this mold is Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates, which just released its first trailer.
Zac Efron (Dirty Grandpa) and Adam Devine (Pitch Perfect) star as two brothers who tend to party just a little bit too hard. Because of this, their parents really don't want them to make a mess of their sister's fancy wedding. So the bros do the most logical thing: put out an ad to try and find two classy ladies to take to the wedding and prove they can be responsible adults. Aubrey Plaza (Dirty Grandpa) and Anna Kendrick (Pitch Perfect) wind up being those dates, but -- plot twist !! -- they turn out to be even more irresponsible than the bros.
Will the four of them make a mess of things? Will they do something to hurt the bride before her big day? Will they wreck the wedding?
Based on this trailer, the answers are 'yes,' 'absolutely yes,' and 'probably, but they'll make it up to everyone in the end.'
Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates is in theaters July 8, 2016.
