Look out, Wedding Crashers: there's a new, bro-heavy, nuptials-disruptive comedy in town, and it's coming for your lifetime frat membership.
Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates stars Zac Efron and Workaholics' Adam DeVine--our two actors who look most like they've faced spring break-related criminal charges--as siblings that might as well just be called The Bro Bros. All evidence from their characters would suggest that this is definitely some kind of cross-over spin-off of Neighbors and Workaholics.
The two have a history of ruining family gatherings, so, as explicitly laid out by their expositional father, Stephen Root, "I want you to bring a date to your sister's wedding. I don't want you showing up stag and riling each other up."
For reasons that can't be explained, the Bro Bros. are confounded by their stated task. Ripped hunk Zac Efron cannot fathom where one would meet a woman willing to attend an event with him, a ripped hunk. DeVine, though, has a bizarre idea: to go on a talk show and publicly solicit dates. One wouldn't think that would work, as two young men looking for wedding dates is in no way an interesting scenario for a talk show to discuss, but they sort it out, because Wendy Williams doesn't really have standards.
Equally intolerable, hard-partying duo Anna Kendrick and Aubrey Plaza (also seemingly reprising her Efron-adjacent role from Dirty Grandpa) see this plea. Noting that the wedding would get them a free trip to the ceremony's Hawaiian locale, they decide to grift these guys, pretending to be respectable dates when, in fact, they are even an more ruinous pair. The crudely-written script is flipped, Bros!
Here's the trailer:
Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates hits theaters July 8--just 19 days after everyone who wants to already saw Party Efron reform himself to combat bikini-clad party girls in Neighbors 2.
