Zac Efron Stars In The New R-Rated Comedy, "Ricky Stanicky"

Zac Efron is no stranger to the R-rated comedy world with starring roles in films like the Neighbors franchise & Dirty Grandpa. He now lends his comedic chops once again with his latest film, Ricky Stanicky. Watch the trailer above!

What's the movie "Ricky Stanicky" about?

Before you know what this movie is about, you should know who the title character of this movie is. He's "the man, the myth, the...lie" as the film's trailer portrays.


The movie follows three childhood best friends Dean, JT, and Wes (Zac Efron, Andrew Santino, and Jermaine Fowler) who pull a prank gone wrong when they invent the imaginary Ricky Stanicky to get them out of trouble. Twenty years after creating this ‘friend,’ the trio still use the nonexistent Ricky as a handy alibi for their immature behavior.


But 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.

Who all's in the cast of "Ricky Stanicky"?

Peter Farrelly directs, who previously directed the Dumb & Dumber franchise, Shallow Hal, & Me, Myself & Irene just to name a few of his iconic comedy films. This latest movie reunites him with Efron from his work directing The Greatest Beer Run Ever.


Rounding out the rest of the cast including Efron, Cena, Santino, and Fowler is William H. Macy, Lex Scott Davis, and Anja Savcic.

When does "Ricky Stanicky" premiere?

Ricky Stanicky premieres on Prime Video Thursday, March 7th!
