Ricky Stanicky | Ratings & Reviews

"An unapologetically lowbrow buddy movie, featuring the funniest performance yet from (Cena)."


"John Cena gives another great comedic performance in a film that falters around him."


"John Cena is wonderfully bonkers."


"The laughs are patchy."

The AgeThe Age

"A humble, mid-budget studio comedy."


"The one bright spot is Cena."

Associated PressAssociated Press

"There are a few laughs but, at nearly two hours, Ricky Stanicky far outstays its welcome."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"Against all odds and sense, (it's) a reasonably functional comedy driven by an in-the-red Cena."


"John Cena cements his reputation as a major comic star, but the movie around him is stale and unfunny."


"What was once considered outrageous, transgressive and anarchic now just seems crass, tired and witless."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"Juvenile and joyless."


"(Cena) brings a gloriously reckless charisma to the character that one absolutely can’t help but be entertained by."

We Got This CoveredWe Got This Covered

"I found myself rooting for the film to get it together for Cena’s sake — to care as much as he does."

The New York TimesThe New York Times

"(Wastes) a clever idea by repeating the same jokes over and over."

Empire MagazineEmpire Magazine

"It doesn’t fulfil the potential of its premise, its cast or its director’s filmography."

New Zealand HeraldNew Zealand Herald

"A lighthearted escape."

Times of IndiaTimes of India

"I’m not sure even an out-of-retirement Daniel Day-Lewis and an in-his-prime Eddie Murphy could rescue this material."

Chicago Sun-TimesChicago Sun-Times

"John Cena approaches his role with the energy of Leonardo DiCaprio in The Wolf of Wall Street. It's a pity that his performance is wasted on such poor material."
