Ricky Stanicky (2024, D: P. Farrelly) S: Cena, Efron



The man, the myth, the...lie. Meet Ricky Stanicky March 7 on Prime Video.

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 director Peter Farrelly and featuring additional cast members including William H. Macy, Lex Scott Davis, and Anja Savcic.

I have absolutely zero expectations for this and I think it looks hilarious. Besides, it's "free".

The name alone sounds as if it should be starring David Spade or Nick Swardson, and I can't quite explain why.

^ Probably because it’s a terrible title with a really “Dickie Roberts” and “Bucky Larson” sound to it.

This movie sounds absolutely imbecilic but I may check it out just for John Cena’s performance. He looks like he decided to go completely off the rails.

I still give either Farrelly a look because of their 3 perfect 90s comedies. If it wasn’t for the name, I would have given this zero priority.

Shattering your jaw will do that. He looked much better here than he did in Iron Claw.

I liked it.

Was funny but still did need more laughs.
Cena knocked it out of the park.

Thuoght the way it wrapped up worked really well.

I get feedback questionnaires from Amazon and got one for this movie.

Most of the questions were what did I like and who did I like in the movie but not one question was about any of the woman in the movie.

There was also a handful of questions asking if I think they should make a sequel.

I watched it last night and actually enjoyed it quite a bit. I mean it’s stupid, basically a typical Farrelly Brothers movie.

John Cena was great and has some pretty hilarious one liners/ throw-away lines throughout. Efron was also great and got funnier the more his characters became stressed out by the situation. William H. Macy also seems to be enjoying himself with his character.

I’m not sure how much replay value this has but it’s worth it just to watch Cena go all-out for this role.

I didn't know he shattered his jaw. I was wondering why he had obvious work done (like someone else posted, he won the genetic lottery). He was looking like he was going for an "early surgery days" Mickey Rourke look.

That’s his story. He says he broke his jaw and the muscles grew back really strong. I guess Rookie of the Year style.

Or he had plastic surgery and used a broken jaw as a cover. Carrie Underwood style.
