Once the Impractical Jokers hit the road, they compete in hidden camera challenges for the chance to turn back the clock and find redemption.

My Thoughts:

The Impractical Jokers have made it to the big screen! If you are fans like my household, you will love their movie debut! The four friends are back together and trying to redeem themselves from a high school mishap. Joe, Murr, Sal, and Q have been real-life friends since high school and this movie begins with the guys in high school and continues forward to a modern day road trip. You are able to see the possible motivation for the beginning of the show based on daring each other to do things when they were in high school. Along with the plot to the movie, we get to see the jokers perform actual pranks on each other with genuine reactions included in the film. The movie had us absolutely cracking up the entire time! This is definitely one you will want to view several times. The jokers did not disappoint in their movie debut, as they created a product that will be appreciated by their long time fans, but also can be enjoyed by those who have not seen the show. I highly recommend you give this a view; you’ll be holding your sides in laughter!
