“Two weeks shy of his wedding, a socially awkward guy enters into a charade by hiring the owner of a company that provides best men for grooms in need.”
Amidst a somewhat predictable plot ( or at least one that you can see clearly where want to go even if they didn’t want you to know), there are some really belly hurt laughs to be had in this movie. The real star here too is the chemistry between all the parts of this movie. Kevin Hart and his little band of brothers here are all really, really funny, and for once Josh Gad doesn’t just look like a creeper. Sorry ladies yuh boy Olaf, has a real creeper face, but in this movie he plays his part really well and every character on a whole is really used to their potential. This is one of those movies, where before you go into the cinema you might a bit worried, that maybe this will a too run of the mill role for Kevin Hart, but he really does a great job here. Not all of the heart warming parts seem genuine, but the movie does well to know when some of them are getting a bit off the rails and quickly jumps the comedy level back up. This really is a good start for comedies for the year, and if you don’t get some laughs from the grooms men group, then you’re probably dead inside.
Review Score : 7 out of 10
