The Ricky Stanicky Trailer Puts Zac Efron And John Cena In A Raunchy Throwback Comedy


There was a time when the Farrelly brothers were dominating Hollywood with juvenile humor that was somehow also brilliant at the same time. “Kingpin” is the perfect example of what they once did very well. But after 2014’s “Dumb and Dumber To,” Peter Farrelly split off to tackle more dramatic fare, which served him well as “Green Book” ultimately won Best Picture (say what you will about the actual film). But the comedy itch came calling once again and this looks very much like him trying to do what he used to do so well.

Amazon seems to think it’s a great idea as it bought the global rights to the film last year. It will be released on Prime Video in March. Aside from Efron and Cena, the cast also includes Jermaine Fowler (“The Blackening”), Andrew Santino (“Dave”), Lex Scott Davis (“The First Purge”), Anja Savcic (“Loudermilk”), Jeff Ross (“The Wedding Ringer”), and William H. Macy (“Fargo”). Jeff Bushell, Brian Jarvis, James Lee Freeman, Peter Farrelly, Pete Jones, and Mike Cerrone all contributed to the screenplay.

“Ricky Stanicky” premieres on Prime Video on March 7, 2024.
