i think this movie fits in with their personality, and it has the joker twist in it(the challenges) and i feel like they did a really good job including the same feeling you get when you watch the show:) and then there are silly side things like Murr secretly having parties in his free time. and then it made perfect sense to end with a Murr punishment lol

Is It Any Good?

For their first big-screen foray, the jokers avoid extreme vulgar humor and manage to remain an oddly likable bunch, but the movie just isn't very funny for anyone who's not fond of practical jokes. Taking a cue from the much funnier Jackass movie Bad Grandpa by deciding to structure reality-based pranks around a fictional road trip, Impractical Jokers: The Movie moves along at a good clip. Even though the stars are silly, juvenile men-children, their genuine friendship and their individual personalities tend to come through. It's difficult not to like them, even if you're not already a fan of their TV series.

The movie also works pretty well when the guest stars play along. Abdul is delightfully funny as a powerful diva -- hilariously, her song "Forever Your Girl" is used in different formats as a recurring musical theme throughout. Other surprise guests include Will Ferrell, whose Funny or Die company helped produce the movie. But whenever Impractical Jokers: The Movie stops for a "challenge" -- such as delivering the worst eulogy or trying to get a motorist to stop and help a stalled car -- everything sputters. Things only get really interesting when one of the men is given a challenge that he feels crosses a line. At least some things are sacred.
