In order to pull themselves out of this pickle, they hire a washed-up actor, Rod (John Cena), to step in as the man, the myth himself. As the mythical Mr Stanicky, Cena's fake friend persona butts into the trio's matters and takes things too far. Going over and beyond, he ends up turning into a nightmare come alive for Dean and his friends.

The boys' families had already predicted the truth of Ricky's non-existence. However, when John Cena rolls out in his facade, all hell breaks loose. The lie takes flight, whereas Zac Efron's world falls apart. With all these frauds in the same room, audiences can expect a full blown-out chaotic unraveling unlike any other.

The Amazon MGM Studios film is directed by Peter Farrelly - the man who brought audiences the crazy Dumb and Dumber movies starring Jim Carrey. Ricky Stanicky will premiere digitally via Prime Video on March 7, 2024. Its supporting cast also features William H. Macy, Lex Scott Davis, and Anja Savcic.
