Bros of a Feather Flock Together

Flock of Dudes (2016)

Adam (Chris D'Elia) and his buddies seem to float through life with little when it comes to responsibility which doesn't go down well with Adam's girlfriend who has enough of his immaturity. But two years later and now in his thirties Adam starts to get a wake up call when one of his friend's decides to get engaged whilst he sees his ex with Mario Lopez. It makes Adam realise that it is about time he grows up and moves on from his "man child" friends which is not easy but with the help of a friend he is determined to break-up from them.

So a comedy about a man-child trying to break up from his man child friends, well it is funny enough but as 90 minutes of entertainment the storyline has a feeling of a 30 minute idea drawn out beyond its limits. Don't get me wrong as the idea is an amusing one but even when it goes off on tangents there isn't enough to it to sustain your interest for 90 minutes. Part of the reason for that is the acting which is hit n miss with some of the cast seemingly thrown in because they can deliver a skit but struggle when it comes to playing characters.

But on the subject of skits, that is where "Flock of Dudes" is at its best such as when Adam ends up on a date and the woman ends up drunk and full on in the bedroom. I could go on because fans of "The Big Bang Theory" will get a laugh from Melissa Rauch and a scene involving a bouquet of vibrators. But it is a case that with not enough story and a reliance on the gags that after a while you become distracted especially as some of the humour is simply moronic.

What this all boils down to is that "Flock of Dudes" ends up hit and miss as whilst some of the gags are memorably funny it doesn't keep your attention or entertained for its duration.
