Raunchy, Violent, Ridiculous, Hilarious
31 March 2018 | by Jared_AndrewsSee all my reviews

The guys from Workaholics star in Netflix's version of a hard R action comedy. In this world, the trio still work together, this time as hotel housekeepers. As you would expect, they do their work half-heartedly with plenty of breaks to drink various rooms's leftover champagne, use drugs and discuss inane million-dollar ideas.

One particular evening becomes more interesting than most when a group of criminals show up to take money from a rich celebrity by the name of, the Bae, who happens to be throwing a party at the hotel. The criminals are doing this because the Bae embezzled money from their company. Or his rich father did. Or something. It doesn't really matter. They're criminals. They're here to steal something. You get the idea.

It's a funny enough set up, though it's a superficial one. We also see an inappropriate hotel manager, a diligent, eager-to-please female housekeeper and the Bae's crew. They are weakly developed as characters, as is the case with virtually every character outside of the main three.

The plot is essentially the same way. One silly action sequence leads to the next without paying much mind to making anyone's actions believable. It's all excusable, since it clearly was not the movie's focus. Everyone and everything is really only here to be funny. But the lack of character development and plot coherence puts a low ceiling on the movie's potential.

Also capping the film's ceiling are the random cameos that served no purpose other than for the audience to say, "oh, hey it's that guy/that girl!" They're pretty weak and pointless. Similarly, somewhere along the way, a character awkwardly comes out of the closet. I'm not sure if the moment is meant to be funny or moving, but it's neither.

The movie succeeds in putting funny moments on screen in the way of in-your-face male nudity and plenty of crude sex jokes. It also gives us plenty of comic violence moments, some of which were gross in a funny way and others were just gross in a gross way. Other less hardcore moments of comedy come from the Workaholics trio's charisma. The guys are undeniably funny in many scenes. Those moments make me wish the entire movie dialed itself down a few levels because a tamer version of the movie could have been a better one, and one that's just as funny.

Ultimately, audiences should take this movie for what it is. It's zany. It's raunchy. It's fun. If at any point you find yourself dissecting the plot, stop. That will do no good for anyone. Instead, watch this movie through an altered lens. I'm not suggesting that you should definitely take something that alters your perception before watching this movie, but I'm also not suggesting that you definitely should not do that.

In any case, watch this movie for a laugh. Save the drama and intellect for another movie.
