Fans of the gross out comedy Dumb and Dumber as well as There’s Something about Mary will be overjoyed at the news that Peter Farrelly, the writer director of those films, makes a return to comedy and we get a first glimpse at it with the Ricky Stanicky trailer – a laugh-out-loud R-rated comedy about a childhood prank gone wrong and decades-long lie gone too far.
Zac Efron, Andrew Santino, and Jermaine Fowler lead the cast as childhood friends Dean, JT, and Wes who create the fictional character and best friend, Ricky Stanicky. John Cena portrays celebrity impersonator “Rock Hard” Rod who is hired by the trio to impersonate their fictional friend “Ricky Stanicky”.
When three childhood best friends pull a prank gone wrong, they invent the imaginary Ricky Stanicky to get them out of trouble! Twenty years after creating this ‘friend,’ Dean, JT, and Wes (Zac Efron, Andrew Santino, and Jermaine Fowler) still use the nonexistent Ricky as a handy alibi for their immature behavior. When their spouses and partners get suspicious and demand to finally meet the fabled Mr. Stanicky, the guilty trio decide to hire washed-up actor and raunchy celebrity impersonator “Rock Hard” Rod (John Cena) to bring him to life. But when Rod takes his role of a lifetime too far, they begin to wish they’d never invented Ricky in the first place
From what we see here this looks really funny and it is a credit to John Cena in some of the truly outrageous outfits he gets to wear here – Brittany Spears anyone ?
