This movie is going to get a lot of shit, especially on this website, but I have to say... it was solid, probably the best post-Apatow depiction of youth's anxieties. And the overall chemistry is noteworthy.
It may be silly but it definitely delivers the laughs and has a lot of heart from these self absorbed and bat shit crazy characters. Aubrey Plaza and Anna Kendrick make a great duo and it is fun to watch Zac Efron and Adam Devine keep up with them.
Obnoxious and so excessively bro-centric that it, dare I say, even goes as far as to undermine and belittle the target-audience before it establishes their credibility at the end. It's also worth noting how Aubrey Plaza, Anna Kendrick, and Alice Wetterlund are consistently funnier and more entertaining to watch than the utterly boring and generic Adam DeVine and Zac Efron characters. Wetterlund is truly terrific here
Cute. Lots of improv I’m guessing which is a substitute nowadays for funny writing. Hire some pleasent personalities and let them “shine” by saying whatever comes into their head and any given moment while the cameras roll. Judd Apatow effect is call it. The stars are fun enough to carry the movie but nothing great to say the least
High-pitched screeching doesn't really register as comedy to me, which was about half of the comedy that this movie presented. The other half was just kind of cringey self-deprecation and obnoxious character performances.
actually & surprisingly very funny. way funnier than expected. have unwittingly just watched an efron trilogy and he might just be that rarest of cinematic unicorns - good looking and highly amusing. I feel a man crush developing...altho have to say the other leads esp. anna kendrick nailed it too...
I've said it before, but I'll say it again; when a comedy has a gag-reel over the end credits, it's a clear indication that the filmmakers knew their movie sucked, and thus they've slapped on the gag-reel as a sort of apology; "we're awfully sorry that the movie you just paid to see was terrible, but here's a ""hilarious"" gag-reel to compensate"!. Filmmakers, the gag-reel makes it worse - salt in the wound!.
