The movie was directed by Peter Farrelly, who returned to the comedy genre after creating such classics as There’s Something About Mary, Dumb and Dumber, and more.

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.

The Prime Video movie features a screenplay by Jeff Bushell and Brian Jarvis & James Lee Freeman & Peter Farrelly & Pete Jones & Mike Cerrone.

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 decides to hire a 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.
