Vacation Friends John Cena

In a post on Twitter, John Cena announced that his new comedy Vacation Friends will have its premiere on Hulu on August 27.

He wrote: “A fun movie guaranteed to leave some … lasting memories. Come on vacation with Lil Rel Howery, Yvonne Orji, Meredith Hagner and me in #VacationFriends, streaming August 27 on @Hulu!

In addition to Cena, Howery, Orji and Hagner, the film stars Lynn Whitfield, Robert Wisdom, Tawny Newsome, Kamal Bolden and Barry Rothbart. It was directed by Clay Tarver from a script from Tim and Tom Mullen.

Here’s a synopsis: 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.
