‘Game Over, Man!’ – Review

Screenshot 2018-03-25 18.00.24


Netflix has been making a lot of movies, but their output is extremely uneven, to put it kindly.  For every Gerald’s Game or Okja they seem to double-down on the terrible, with movies like The Babysitter or just about anything featuring Adam Sandler.

And Game Over, Man! fits firmly in the latter category.

As far as I am aware it’s the first feature starring all the members of the Workaholics (Adam Devine, Anders Holm and Blake Anderson, whom are really, really funny on that show) yet here are only intermittently so.

And then there’s the curious fascination with cocks–male genitalia, not the bird–that would be, at it’s best, infantile if it weren’t done in such a fashion that is so thoroughly off-putting.

It’s worth mentioning that there are a lot of celebrity “cameos” in Game Over, Man! where actors appear and then are dispatched so quickly you’d think that they were aware of how potentially a career killing move they were making, and did whatever they possibly could to minimize the fallout.

And while I wasn’t privy to any contract negotiations, it does explain a lot.
