New Game Over, Man! Trailer Turns the Workaholics Into Action Heroes

Love Workaholics but sad it softly floated into the dustbin of history last year with its final episodes? Well, dry those tears, baby boy. The gang is back in an all-new movie that they wrote, directed and star in. And it’s coming to Netflix exclusively this March. Today, we have an all-new trailer for Game Over, Man! And it looks like our boys haven’t lost a step.

When bad guys target a celebrity party, three SWAT…SEALS…MAIDS are left to clean up the mess. This is the most action they have seen in years. Adam Devine, Anders Holm and Blake Anderson star in Game Over, Man!, an outrageous homage to 1980s action-comedies, out March 23rd. During a star-studded Los Angeles party, three zeroes become heroes (sort of) when the hotel they work at is taken hostage by bad guys.  From the creators of Workaholics, this action comedy comes locked and super loaded a week after St. Paddy’s Day, in case your still nursing a week long hangover.

The film is directed by Kyle Newacheck, who played Kyle on Workaholics and directed most of those episodes and written by Anders Holm. The action comedy is produced by Adam Devine, Anders Holm, Blake Anderson and Kyle Newacheck of Mail Order Comedy, Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and James Weaver of Point Grey, and Scott Rudin and Eli Bush.

For those not quite in the know about the comedy troupe Mail Order Comedy, Adam Devine, Anders Holm, Blake Anderson and Kyle Newacheck got their start doing skits on the Internet before selling their Workaholics pitch to Comedy Central. What resulted was a half hour sitcom that followed the lives of three stoner buddies and their day job at a telemarketing company. The team co-created the extremely popular show, which ran for Season 7, and ended on its own terms. Now, the gang is split across various platforms, networks and big screen projects as they each work individually to carve out their niche in Hollywood. But the boys plan to continue working together with the occasional movie project such as this. So this is definitely not the last time you’ve seen the MOC clan doing what they do best.

One of Workaholics best contributions to the world of comedy was its use of action tropes in a sitcom, and it often took off running with some highly inventive and amazing odes to the genre that topped even the best big screen offerings at the time. So it’s no wonder that’s where they went with their first feature film. Those action chops are definitely on display in this latest trailer, which you can check out in all its glory here thanks to Netflix. These guys should be chugging champagne and chilling with Shaggy. Instead, they are the only ones who can save a hotel full of hostages from a terrorist organization. If that doesn’t scream spring break streaming fun, then nothing does, really.
