Trivia

This was originally supposed to premiere at the SXSW Film Festival on March 14, 2020, but the festival was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The U.S. theatrical release date of April 17, 2020, through MGM's Orion Pictures, was canceled for the same reason.

The movie was accidentally released on Amazon Prime Video on April 17, and taken down soon after. It was up long enough to be downloaded and leaked on pirating sites. Netflix bought the distribution rights from MGM a month later, and the leak did not impact the deal. See more »

Eric Andre does it again.........
2 May 2020 | by Ham9000See all my reviews

I would've liked it more if Hannibal Buress was involved, but it's still hilarious either way. The pranks were pretty clever, the chemistry between Andre and Howery felt genuine, and I have to give credit for Tiffany Haddish for being funny for once. The first act of the film was sort of an issue for me, because it felt more like Impractical Jokers than Eric Andre. But when the film picked up the pace, I was laughing so hard, that I swallowed my throat lozenge, and I thought I was gonna die.

7/10, funny as hell.
