Jermaine Fowler stars alongside Zac Efron, Andrew Santino, and John Cena in the upcoming R-rated comedy “Ricky Stanicky,” directed by Peter Farrelly. The recently released trailer on Prime Video unveils a plot centered around childhood friends, Wes (Fowler), Dean (Efron), and JT (Santino), who after a childhood prank gone awry, create a fictional character named Ricky Stanicky.

Lex Scott Davis, William H. Macy, Lex Scott Davis, Jeff Ross, and Anja Savcic round out the cast. Ricky Stanicky is set to stream on Prime Video starting March 7.

The officially synopsis reads:

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.

In the trailer you watch Efron tell Cena, who appears to be taking the gig too far, “Ricky Stanicky isn’t real.” Which Cena then explains why he wants to continue playing the part: “My job sucked, I had no friends. But now I have all those things.”

Watch the trailer below.

Directed by Peter Farrelly, with a screenplay by Jeff Bushell, Brian Jarvis, James Lee Freeman, Pete Jones, and Mike Cerrone, “Ricky Stanicky” is not just a comedy; it’s a reflection on the consequences of a harmless childhood prank evolving into a full-fledged deception.
