Directed by Peter Farrelly, the comedy stars John Cena and Zac Efron, and centers on three friends who have been friends since childhood. But, they were mischievous little dudes, and often found themselves getting caught in that mischief red-handed.

So, to avoid getting in trouble, they created Ricky Stanicky. He’s an imaginary person that the boys blamed for all their shenanigans. But when one particular shenanigan ends disastrously, their friends and family want to finally meet the infamous Ricky.

Enter John Cena, who plays Rock Hard Rod, a performer in Vegas who Efron and his pals hire to be Stanicky. He takes the role a bit too seriously though, resulting in even more chaos than planned.
