Anyway! When we found out the Impractical Jokers were putting out a feature length movie, the question became how would the oldest four of us go since we wouldn't be taking the younger two. The solution was that my husband took my 12 year old son and I took my 14 year old daughter at a separate time. It did not disappoint. It was like a bonus length episode of the show, but with a storyline as a backdrop.
The concept is that the Jokers are offered free tickets to a Paula Abdul concert in Miami. In an effort to relive their high school days and correct a previous Abdul experience-gone-wrong, they decide to make the trip. Unfortunately that darn Casey Jost (playing Abdul's assistant) only gives them three tickets and there are four Jokers! They compete in challenges along the way to Miami and the loser's punishment is not getting to go.
My favorite part were the little individual challenges that the boys must do that aren't actually part of the competition. (Sal gets trapped in a hotel room with a live tiger!) If you're a fan of the show, you'll appreciate all the hidden gems that reference previous challenges or memorable lines. There is also a quick glimpse of Funny or Die founder Will Ferrell that you should watch for. If you've never seen the show, but can appreciate silliness, I can't imagine why anyone wouldn't like the movie! Can I also say that it was hilarious that they put zero effort into making themselves actually look like high schoolers during their high school flashback?
Moral of this review: Stay Home. Watch Impractical Jokers: The Movie.
