If you haven’t heard yet Netflix released a movie with all of our favorite stars from Workaholics, Adam DeVine, Anders Holm and Blake Anderson. It’s directed by Kyle Newacheck. It’s set up as an action comedy but proves to be so much more, in a gross way but more on that later.
The concept of the movie is centered on three loser hotel housekeepers with terrible ideas of how to achieve their goal of getting rich. They choose the worst possible time to pitch one of their ridiculous ideas to a playboy investor, just as a group of terrorists take over the high-rise hotel where they work. The three hear that Bey Awadi, a playboy billionaire social-media influence known as “The Bey,” is coming to throw a huge party at their hotel. Alexxx quickly thinks up of a plan to get them within distance of the him at his exclusive party, slipping in easily as hotel staff bringing the appetizers. Bey turns out to be even more childish than they are and he’s quickly all-in of their idea for the “Skintendo Joysuit,” a VR-video game suit that can be used to control the suit’s wearer. However, their manager overhears them and fires them on the spot, kicking them out just as a group of terrorist invade the hotel. The terrorists begin taking hostages, threatening to kill celebrities until their demands are met. Now the three have a new mission, become heroes and save the day. This proves to more of a challenge than they expect and friendships are tested.
The story itself is nothing to brag about but it is filled with a lot of pop culture references and a lot of “B” list celebrities make appearances including Steve-O, Action Bronson, Donald Faison and Shaggy among others. It’s set up to be an action-comedy but turns out to be more gruesome and disturbing than I at least thought it was going to be.
Disclaimer: It’s quite graphic in both the sexual aspect and gore aspect, there is a scene in which a meat slicer is involved and its graphic. It’s very outlandish and over the top at every point but what else could you expect from our three main stars? I went into the movie not expecting much and was pleasantly surprised of the outcome. If you watch comedy central and enjoy their programming this is a must watch. I laughed and cringed at many points in the movie.
I am a bit bias on the rating because there’s a certain scene involving a certain animal that I won’t spoil and for that alone I dropped points.
Have you seen the movie yet? What did you think!? Let me know in the comments below!
