Ricky Stanicky (2024) – Movie Review

by | Mar 21, 2024 | Uncategorized | 0 comments

Ricky Stanicky is a fantastically funny film that greatly benefits from unpredictably absurd and all-time comedic performance by a John Cena in top form. Reminiscent of early-to-mid 2000’s comedy films, director Peter Farrelly (Dumb and Dumber, There’s Something About Mary, Green Book) taps into a time where mid-budget comedies were King and were constantly being churned out. The stories might not have been the most intricate, but there was something relieving and enjoyable about watching silly people do stupid stuff for 90 minutes. Based on the advertisements I took Ricky Stanicky to be some wannabe “throwback” that thought it was funnier and raunchier than it really was and for that reason had avoided it. Fortunately, I listened to a film friend who took a chance on it and I’m so thankful that I did because I hadn’t laughed like that during a movie in a while!
