Actor-comedians Yvonne Orji and Lil’ Rel Howery teamed up for a new movie about the wild adventure they shared on a trip with a character played by John Cena

According to The Wrap, the comedy follows the story of a couple played by Orji and Howery who’re about to have a dream wedding, only to have a couple crash the ceremony, claiming to be their best friends. As it turns out, the wedding crashers, John Cena and his partner, played by Meredith Hagner, had spent a week in Mexico with Orji and Howery, taking new meaning to the phrase “bad trip.” 

From replacing the salt on the margarita glass with drugs to other unbelievable moments, Cena’s character definitely leaves an impression on the bride- and groom-to-be, for better or worse. 

“Everywhere they go, chaos happens,” Lil’ Rel’s character “Marcus” says in the first trailer, which dropped Wednesday (July 21).

Vacation Friends is scheduled to start streaming on Hulu August 27.

This isn't the first time Orji and Howery have been cast mates. The two starred together in a few episodes of Issa Rae's Insecure. Orji posted the movie announcement on Instagram and made a promise about the "shenanigans" in the film.
