Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates Anna Kendrick Aubrey Plaza

Even before #FriendGoals was a thing, Anna Kendrick and Aubrey Plaza were mine. They send each other naked Twitter pics, they go on vacation together, and they're just generally hilarious. So imagine my delight when I heard they were starring in a new movie together called Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates. Anna and Aubrey both already appeared in the movie Life After Beth, but this is the first time they've really been the dynamic duo we know and love on the big screen. Too bad the trailer, which premiered after the Super Bowl last night, makes the movie look terrible.

The gist is that Mike and Dave (Adam DeVine and Zac Efron) are brothers who have a habit of causing trouble at weddings. So their parents insist that they bring dates to their sister's wedding to prevent the chaos that ensues when they go stag. Mike and Dave advertise looking for a couple of nice girls to take with them to Hawaii for the wedding. Anna and Aubrey's characters pretend to be respectable to get a free vacation, even though they are anything but. Haha, I bet shenanigans will ensue, huh? Yeah, they will. And they look dumb.

If you showed me a random shot of Zac Efron in this movie, I honestly wouldn't know if it was from this, Dirty Grandpa, Neighbors or We Are Your Friends. Because all of his movies, give or take a High School Musical and a Paperboy, are the same, and now he's dragging Aubrey and Anna into the mix. There's nothing worse than when people you really like, especially as a team, make a movie that you just can't bring yourself to see. (Cough, Tina and Amy, cough.) I was rooting for you, Anna and Aubrey! We were all rooting for you! How dare you?!
