Movie Info

In this raw and raunchy comedy, straight-laced Marcus and Emily (Lil Rel Howery, Yvonne Orji) are befriended by wild, thrill-seeking partiers Ron and Kyla (John Cena, Meredith Hagner) at a resort in Mexico. Living in the moment, the usually level-headed couple lets loose to enjoy a week of uninhibited fun and debauchery with their new "vacation friends." Months after their walk on the wild side, Marcus and Emily are horrified when Ron and Kyla show up uninvited at their wedding, creating chaos and proving that what happens on vacation, doesn't necessarily stay on vacation.

Vacation Friends is fine. You'll probably never rewatch it and you'll never quote from it, but it's amiable enough to pass some time.

September 10, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Sure, it's a silly R-rated raunchy comedy in which we get both testicle and poop jokes (classic). But it's proudly open hearted and a funny, if absurd, champion of friendship. I can't wait to take my next vacation.

September 4, 2021 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

There's nothing especially revelatory about "Vacation Friends." There are a few genuinely good laughs to be had involving drugs, golf and a catamaran, both during the vacation and the wedding.

September 1, 2021 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

These actors are audience favorites, evidenced in the number of summer movies they've showed up in lately. They could pull this off. It's a shame nothing in the script gives them a chance to do so.

It's the goofy that makes the movie.

August 27, 2021 | Full Review…

As the film continues, every gag stays on same level and thus becomes less and less satisfying. Not even a breaded cheese enthusiast such as myself wants 300 mozzarella sticks.
