Several months ago, I caught Lily watching this movie. I snatched the remote QUICK. I’d forgotten about it until I was chillin’ with my friend Rachel. She lured me in with the promise of a glorious merkin…and y’all know how I feel about merkins.
So…we’re not sick of Adam Devine’s douchebro act yet? I mean, I’m not sick of it quite yet…but it is starting to wear thin.
Really, the best thing about the movie is not Mike & Dave – it’s Tatiana and Alice. Not a few people have told me that I remind them of Aubrey Plaza – my black sense of humor and dry wit, etc. Oh, and my hatred of EVERYTHING. She doesn’t disappoint here – she’s amazing. I don’t know much about Anna Kendrick, except that she is in those Pitch Perfect movies. Even so, I kinda like her a lot. In interviews, she seems to be a real person that gives zero fucks about celebrity bullshit.
I got all excited when they went on the Jurassic Park ATV Tours – we went there, too! It’s a resort called Kualoa Ranch, and of course we didn’t do the ATV part, but we toured it in bus. In fact, almost the whole movie is filmed at Kualoa Ranch. It’s an awesome place to visit with kids.
The massage scene is my favorite. I want all my massage therapist buds to watch it, but I don’t want them to get mad at me. I KNOW that’s not real, but it still makes me giggle.
The merkin didn’t make an appearance until the very end, but it wa indeed quite glorious. A glorious, glorious merkin.
