Ripped is a 2017 comedy movie that stars two famous stand-up comedians Russell Peters and Faizon Love. The movie also has Alex Meneses in a supporting role. The movie is directed by Brad Epstein and is produced by Suzanne Weinert and Nate Bolotin. It was distributed by Screen Media Films. The movie is set in 1986, and it follows two childhood best friends who smoke some highly potent marijuana and suddenly wake up in the year 2016. Harris (Russell Peters) and Reeves (Faizon Love) are two stoners from the 80s who spend most of their time smoking weed, playing video games, and obsessing over the beautiful girls in their neighborhood. One day, they stumble upon some free samples of a new weed strain that they are eager to try.

After smoking the weed, they pass out and wake up in a very different world. They have been gone for 30 years, and everything has changed. They are initially confused by their surroundings and wonder how they got there but then realize that they must have been in some sort of time warp or something. They soon discover that they have aged thirty years, but the world has progressed without them.

The movie then focuses on how the two friends adapt to the modern world and its ways. It covers various things that have changed over the last thirty years, such as technology, social media, and popular culture. Harris and Reeves are amazed by the world they are in as things have changed beyond their wildest dreams. The two friends are desperate to find a way back to the 1980s but are unsure of how to do so.

Russell Peters and Faizon Love are both hilarious in their roles as the two friends. Love plays the role of the slightly delusional Reeves, who is convinced that he can still charm women with his 80s slang and corny pick-up lines. Peters, on the other hand, plays the more level-headed Harris, who is the voice of reason for the duo. Together, they make a great comedy team and will have audiences laughing throughout the movie.

Alex Meneses plays the role of Maria, a woman that the duo meets in the present day. Maria is a successful lawyer who helps the two friends navigate the modern world. She takes pity on them and tries to help them adjust to the new world they have found themselves in. Maria is also interested in learning more about their past and the 1980s, which provides a lot of comedic moments in the movie.

The movie was shot on location in the City of Angels, Los Angeles. The team behind the movie has done an excellent job of capturing both the 80s and the present day. The comedy moments in the film are well executed and will have you laughing out loud. The film's subtle message of the importance of friendship over the years is a welcome addition to the comedy movie.

In conclusion, Ripped is an excellent movie that will have you laughing from start to finish. The film does an excellent job of capturing the essence of the 80s and the present day. The film's central message of the importance of friendship is poignant and impactful. Russell Peters and Faizon Love are hilarious in their roles, and Alex Meneses complements them perfectly. The movie is highly recommended for anyone looking for a good laugh.
