Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates (2016/Fox 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray w/Blu-ray + Blu-ray w/DVD Versions)

4K Ultra HD Picture: B+ Picture: B/B- Sound: B/B- Extras: B Film: C

Filled with pretty faces and outlandish party humor, the 2016 Jake Szymanski-directed Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates (2016) lands on disc in two sets we're looking at here to bring the party into your living room. Aimed at the sort of crowd that enjoys Dirty Grandpa and Neighbors, the film features an all-star cast including Zac Efron, Anna Kendrick, Adam Devine, and Aubrey Plaza to name a few.

Mike and Dave (Efron and Devine) seem to always be the two that ruin family gatherings with mayhem and over the top partying. When their family gives them an intervention, the two boys have to find wedding dates so that their eyes don't go wandering during the ceremony and they stay in line. But when they end up finding two dysfunctional ladies (Kendrick and Plaza), they soon find that they have met their match. You can pretty much figure out what to expect from there.

The 2160p HEVC/H.265, HDR (10; Ultra HD Premium)-enhanced Ultra High Definition image on the 4K version of the film is hardly the best demo disc in the format, with the outdoor footage that stops this from looking like a sitcom kicking in to just put this narrowly above the 1080p regular Blu-ray in both sets, digital High Definition with a widescreen aspect ratio of 2.39:1. Thus, you don't get much of an improvement, but less fatigue viewing it 4K versus 1080p, almost by default, yet both have decently recorded, lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 lossless tracks that offer some good recording and dynamic range for a joke-based production.

A DVD is also included is a standard definition DVD with an anamorphic widescreen aspect ratio of 2.39:1 and a lossy Dolby Digital 5.1 track that looks and sounds fine for DVD but doesn't compare to the 4K or 1080p high definition presentations.

Special Features include...

14 Deleted Scenes

16 Extended Scenes

Alternate Storyline Pig Sequence

Bits on Bits on Bits


Gag Reel

Funny Or Die Shorts

Packed with extras and full of some hit and miss laughs, this film will appeal more towards younger audiences and those that enjoy both party humor and improv.
