So my hot take of the day comes with the claim that Anna Kendrick and Aubrey Plaza are two of the funniest women in Hollywood right now. Now I say “two of” on purpose because 1) There are plenty of other women in Hollywood who are just as funny but not relevant to this particular article and 2) I don’t want to get yelled at by anyone who disagrees with me so I’m feeding into my own fear of confrontation with a diction sleight of hand. Still, they’re hilarious. Kendrick’s mouth is as filthy as an Irishman who has just hit his thumb with a hammer and Plaza has perfected the art of deadpan humor to the point that I sometimes forget she didn’t actually invent it. Plus, yes, neither of them are tough on the eyes.
So, since I’m sure you’re wondering, yes, I wasn’t unexcited when I found out a few months ago that these two ladies were teaming up with Adam Devine and Zac Efron to film a movie called Mike And Dave Need Wedding Dates. Honestly, even though the film looks hilarious, I was mostly excited to see the kind of stuff these four would come up with during their press tour. Like this interview they did with Vanity Fair, where Devine, Kendrick and Plaza purposely were as raunchy as possible.
