Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates (2016)
R | 98 min | Comedy | 8 July 2016 (USA)

Two reckless but lovable all-American bros make a strong case for maturing slowly through their outrageous yet enlightening misadventures across this great country of ours.

My brother and I are looking for wedding dates for our cousin’s wedding.

We’ve been told by the bride that bringing dates is “mandatory” so we “won’t harass all of my friends all night” and “stay under control.” Rather than ask some fringe women in our lives to go and face the inevitable ‘does this mean he wants to take it to the next level?!’ questions, we’d rather bring complete strangers and just figure it out…

We’re both in our 20s, single, dashingly tall, Anglo-Saxon, respectfully athletic, love to party, completely house trained…love our mother, have seen Love Actually several times…raw, emotional, sensitive, but still bad boys.…You should be attractive or our aunts will judge you, but not TOO attractive or one of our uncles might grope you.

Dave and Mike Stangle thought nothing of it when they boozily decided to turn to the “activity partners” section of Craigslist to solicit dates to their cousin’s wedding. The hilarious, out-of-this-world ad that they came up with—featuring a picture of the two brothers as centaurs—immediately went viral, eventually landing these Wayfarers-wearing, moped-riding, completely reckless but ultimately loveable bros in the annals of the “Internet famous.”

Which was better the book or the movie?

Quirky Omega | 24 comments It's surprising how quickly the book's been converted into a movie. It doesn't even a half decent rating and that too not many seem to have read it.

Right? There are several obscure books made into movies this month..but this one I think is the "weirdest."

I think the movie will be funny,one of those absurd comedies you can't help but like. I like the main cast and it seems to turn into kind of a romantic comedy in the end, so I'll be seeing it. I'm not so sure about the book, though.

Keep us posted once you've seen the movie. It does have some talented actors and actress and Adam DeVine is really funny on Modern Family.
