Though it is unclear the final plot of the movie, the synopsis of the film gives us a few hints. The movie’s plot will center upon the pair getting kicked out of their residence, and as a result, they will be forced to live in a stylish and luxurious New York Hotel. The main protagonist of the movie is a character named Kayla, who has started a new job at the hotel. Jerry, who is taking residence at the hotel, threatens Kayla to ruin the royal wedding, which is supposed to take place at the hotel. Kayla, in turn, hires Tom to help her evict Jerry out of the hotel, and we all know what happens when Jerry and Tom come together. We can expect the usual running around of the duo all over the hotel, and I honestly can’t wait for the movie to come out.
The cast of the movie is top-notch with the Equalizer’s Chloë Grace Moretz. She will be playing the protagonist Kayla. We will also see the comedian and actor Ken Jeong.
Michael Peña was recently added to the cast list. According to the sources, he is going to play Terrance, who is the main antagonist of the movie. Peña is famous for the blockbuster Marvel’s Ant-Man series. He was recently seen in Netflix’s acclaimed series Narcos.
