Ricky Stanicky is a forthcoming movie from Amazon Prime, starring Zac Efron and John Cena.
Synopsis: The man, the myth, the… lie.
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 (Efron, Andrew Santino, and Jermaine Fowler) still use the non-existent Ricky as a handy alibi for their immature behaviour. 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 (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.
Ricky Stanicky is on Amazon Prime from March 7th, and we’ll be reviewing it nearer the time.
