Everyone who’s ever tossed out an ‘It wasn’t me’ or made up some outlandish excuse why they couldn’t attend their neighbor’s kid’s cousin’s cello recital will appreciate this (very) low-brow and ultimately eyeroll-worthy effort… but that’s about as far as this one goes. Zac Efron is one of three musketeers who made up an imaginary friend to blame things on–which sounds great, until they get caught in their own lie and have to produce the actual person. Enter the up-for-anything John Cena, who throws his all into the proceedings and makes this actually borderline-watchable. Still, do we need to sit through almost two hours of this nonsense?
