Following a Successful Theatrical Run, truTV’s First-Ever Feature-Length Film - Available NOW on Digital!

Some people thought that it was an April Fool's joke when they heard that Impractical Jokers; The Movie was releasing to Digital on April 1st, as it was just in theaters, and couldn't be arriving so soon to Digital.  But, with all that is going on with the Covid-19 Virus and movie theaters all around closing down, movies like this one are arriving sooner, rather than later to digital, DVD, Blu-ray, etc.  And, what better to pass time at home than by watching a new movie that you may have missed when it was in theaters recently, or had on your must see list.  

Impractical Jokers: The Movie was top on my must see list. My husband and I had plans to see in theaters, but the weekend we had planned to go, our AMC Theatres closed down.  So, no movie night for us, and no seeing this hilarious new flick starring everyone's favorite jokers.  If you turn on TruTV, it is hard not to see an episode of Impractical Jokers on television. They seem to play this show 24/7, or so it seems.  But, that is not an issue for my husband or I, as we are huge fans of the series and these 4 guys who compete to embarrass each other.  It is hard to find a person who hasn't seen this show...even more parents watch this show and love it!

So, when I heard last year that they had plans for a movie, I was curious to see how they would turn the show into a movie.  Would it be cheesy or stupid?  Would it be worth the cost of a date night at the movies?  Well, after watching the movie last night with my husband, thanks to a digital code sent my way, my answer is "Yes, it was worth it!"  This movie is just as funny as the television series, and has all new challenges and punishments that will have you laughing until you are red in the face and your stomach hurts.  Yes, it is really that funny!  My husband and I couldn't stop laughing, and loved how Q, Joe, Murr and Sal showed how they can also act in this new digital movie release.  The whole idea of the movie is that they run into Paula Abdul at a restaurant and are given only 3 passes to her Miami concert.  But, there are 4 guys, so that means they will have to battle it out to see which 3 guys are going to the show.  And, the only way they can decide the 3 is by competing in their hilarious challenges, just like you see on the ever popular television series airing on TruTV.  They are trying to redeem themselves from a mishap back in the early 90's when they tried sneaking into a Paula Abdul concert, and a cross country trip to Miami is just what they need to set things straight for the guys.

Don't worry, I will not give away any more of the story or go into detail about the all new challenges the guys compete it. I just wanted to make you aware that the new Impractical Jokers: The Movie is now available to own on Digital, and really is a must see movie, especially if you are fan of the hit television series, like my husband and I are. We loved the movie, and can't wait to watch it again soon. And, I know once you start watching it, it will be hard for you to stop laughing. :-)  This is the perfect movie to watch to take your mind off of what is going on in the world...even if just for a couple hours.
