“Game Over, Man!” is one of the most outrageous movies I’ve seen in a very long time, and it’s very funny.

The movie stars the “Workaholics” crew of Adam Devine, Anders Holm and Blake Anderson as three maids who get caught up in the middle of a hostage situation at a hotel.

Now, let me say that this movie is over the top from pretty much start to finish. There’s nothing subtle or nuanced about anything in the film. It has cheap sex jokes, it’s unnecessarily bloody and seems to play to the lowest common denominator at all moments.

However, that doesn’t mean it wasn’t highly entertaining as a way to kill some time.

I’m a huge fan of the lead trio ever since I first saw them in “Workaholics.” It was a great show, and this is pretty much just an extra long episode where they are stopping a hostage situation.

This movie isn’t going to be winning any awards. No chance, and the reviews across the board have been brutal. I don’t judge off of what other critics do. My only standard is whether or not I had fun watching. Well, I did. Might not ever watch it again, but I was entertained while it was on.

There was some action, there were a few clever jokes and the “Workaholics” trio is always outstanding together. I give it a 6/10, and would recommend fans of the show checking it out.
