Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (9):
Kids say (15):

This movie trades on the charm of its four leads but doesn't deliver on its promise. The jokes in Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates are stale, the set-up sexist (supposedly mitigated by the understanding that the women are acting the way they are because they're "empowered," but, really?), and the story an unoriginal mash-up of other, better comedies (it's Wedding Crashers meets Neighbors meets Bridesmaids meets every other buddy comedy). So thank goodness for the stars, who are at least likable enough to elicit a few laughs -- that is, when they don't all seem to be trying too hard to make the audience laugh.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
