A truTV original production and produced by Funny Or Die, “Impractical Jokers: The Movie” carries a suggested retail price of $19.99 for the Digital ($24.99 in Canada) and is rated PG-13.
“‘Impractical Jokers’ raised the stakes bringing their hijinks to the big screen and we couldn’t be more proud of their impressive box office debut,” Brett Weitz, General Manager for TNT, TBS, & truTV, said. “The unwavering support of their fans prove that this comedy franchise continues to provide endless laughs and entertainment that we are pleased to bring into homes.”
“Impractical Jokers first premiered on truTV to much fanfare in December 2011 and quickly became a hit, especially among young adults,” Mary Ellen Thomas, WBHE Senior Vice President, Originals, Animation & Family Marketing, said. “The power of the loyal fanbase has proven the sky's the limit for this comedy franchise, and we are eager to bring home the laughter and antics of their first feature film for the whole family to enjoy.”

“Impractical Jokers: The Movie” stars James “Murr” Murray, Brian “Q” Quinn, Joe Gatto, and Sal Vulvano, also known as the comedy troupe The Tenderloins, playing themselves in a fictional story of a humiliating high school mishap from the early nineties.

Featuring appearances from Paula Abdul, Jaden Smith, and Joey Fatone, the movie combines the fictional narrative with real life footage of over-the-top punishments and callbacks to classic moments from the series.

Once the Impractical Jokers hit the road, they compete in hidden camera challenges for the chance to turn back the clock and find redemption.
