Directed by Clay Tarver, the sequel to the 2021 comedy also stars Meredith Hagner, John Cena and add Ronny Chieng, Carlos Santos, Jamie Hector and Steve Buscemi.
The film picks up the story a few months after the end of the first film, following a newlywed couple and their wild married friends on another vacation where hijinks ensue. This time around, another relative adds even more bizarre behavior to the event. According to the official description:
Picking up a few months after the end of “Vacation Friends,” this uproarious sequel finds newly married couple Marcus (Howery) and Emily (Orji) inviting their uninhibited besties Ron (Cena) and Kyla (Hagner), who are also newly married and have a baby, to join them for a vacation when Marcus lands an all-expenses-paid trip to a Caribbean resort. His reason for traveling there in the first place is to meet with the owners of the resort to bid on a construction contract for a hotel they own in Chicago. But when Kyla’s incarcerated father Reese (Buscemi) is released from San Quentin and shows up at the resort unannounced at the worst possible moment, things get out of control, upending Marcus’ best laid plans and turning the vacation friends’ perfect trip into total chaos.
The film is produced by Todd Garner and Stuart Besser.
