Game Over, Man!: Puerile.....fun?
22 March 2019 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

3 housekeepers in a hotel must embrace their inner heroes when terrorists take over the building Nakatomi Plaza style

Starring the obnoxiously annoying Adam Devine and a host of cameo appearances from Steve-O to Donald Faison to Mark Cuban this is a slapstick Hollywood comedy that simply wasn't funny enough.

Game Over, Man! could be broken down into three categories.

1) The moments that are funny 2) The moments that are too annoying to be funny 3) The moments that are too serious to be funny

Sadly 2 & 3 combined make up the majority of the film and though there were a few laughs to be had there simply wasn't enough for a feature film.

I've always said that Hollywood has lost its way when it comes to comedy. The reason being the formula they use, it's almost as if they are taking drama scripts throwing a few jokes in and calling them comedies. I thought based on the trailer this would be a rare exception and would be wall to wall silliness and jokes but it falls into the same pitfall. I don't want angst I want laughs!

Game Over, Man! isn't terrible it just struggles with a patchy script, an undeserving cast and the above Hollywood tropes.

The Good:

Some laughs to be had

The Bad:

Adam Devine

Needless animal death

Not consistently funny enough
