See John Cena Dress Up As Famous Pop Stars In New Amazon Movie

Zac Efron is hopping back aboard the comedy train with a new flick that’s bound to tickle your funny bone and maybe even make you spit out your popcorn in laughter. “Ricky Stanicky” is the name of the game, a Prime Video exclusive set to drop next month, featuring a stellar cast that reads like a who’s who of Hollywood’s funniest: alongside Efron, we’ve got John Cena, Jermaine Fowler, Andrew Santino, William H. Macy, and Anja Savcic.

Directed by Peter Farrelly, a man who’s practically comedy royalty thanks to hits like “Dumb and Dumber,” this movie promises to be a riot. The plot? A trio of childhood besties concoct a fictional character, Ricky Stanicky, to blame for their juvenile pranks gone awry. Fast forward two decades, and they’re still using Ricky as their go-to excuse for any and all mischief. It’s the kind of genius idea you wish you’d thought of for your own misadventures.

The buzz around “Ricky Stanicky” is palpable, with fans across the internet predicting it’ll breathe new life into the comedy genre. And with John Cena stepping into the titular role, expectations are sky-high for a blend of belly laughs and possibly a few face-palms, given the trio’s likely antics.

Peter Farrelly’s return to the comedy scene with this film is noteworthy, especially following his Oscar-winning detour with “Green Book.” It’s like watching Michael Jordan return to basketball: you know you’re in for a treat. John Cena’s excitement about the project is just the cherry on top, promising a character who’s everyone’s best friend — except, perhaps, for those on the receiving end of the pranks.

Mark your calendars for March 7, when “Ricky Stanicky” makes its grand entrance on Prime Video. With such a cast and creative team, it’s shaping up to be the comedy event of the season. Let’s just hope Ricky Stanicky can handle the spotlight — after all, it’s not every day you get blamed for two decades of shenanigans and still become a legend.
