After over 200 episodes, The Impractical Jokers finally have their own movie. Made for fans of the show, the movie takes you on a cross country and multi year adventure with the four high school friends who formed the comedy group and pull pranks on each other and the people around them.
Following a made up story line of how the group got started, the four comedians are taking a road trip from Staten Island to Miami to attend a Paula Abdul concert – but they only have three tickets, so they have to compete in order to go to the concert.
While The Impractical Jokers Movie is made mostly for fans, you don’t have to be a fan to enjoy it. The movie is full of funny situations, moments where the group has to get the public to engage with them in a certain way in order to get points. From a mall Santa in the summer, to a slightly in appropriate funeral arrangements and even a birthday celebration that goes wrong. Every prank they play on each other and other people will have you laughing throughout the whole movie.
With so much bad news in the world, its time to find a movie that can make you laugh and take your mind off what is happening. While the movie is not for younger viewers, it’s a great movie to watch and laugh for a couple hours.
The Impractical Jokers movie is available on Digital everywhere now, and a great way to laugh the night away.
