Sextuplets is a new comedy starring Marlon Wayans as Alan, a father- to-be who learns that he has five other siblings he’s never met. Alan decides that his baby arrives, he’s going to track down all his siblings.

Additional key cast includes Molly Shannon, Bresha Webb, Glynn Turman…

A day is going to come when I’m in the mood for some silliness. And when that day comes, I’ll hit play on this very movie and hope for the best.

I wonder how Sextuplets will hold up when compared to Eddie Murphy’s The Nutty Professor (1996)? A movie where Murphy played several characters of his onscreen family, Just like Wayans is doing here.

For a second I actually thought that the ‘stripper sister’ may have been Tiffany Haddish in a fat suit but, but no.

Debbi Morgan, Michael Ian Black, Robert Pralgo, Damon Vance, Jwaundace Candece, Scott Hunter, Patti Schellhaas, Ruben Vidal and LeBron Daniel also star.

Sextuplets Release Dates: August 16th, 2019 (US)…

NAKED (2017): It’s…

Naked is another movie that’s inspired by Groundhog Day (1993). Except this time, instead of a weatherman, a future groom is forced to relive the same nerve-wracking hours over and over again until he learns what he’s supposed to learn to become a better person.

Directed by Michael Tiddes, part of my issue with Naked is that Marlon Wayans’s character just wasn’t trying hard enough to make it to the wedding. Some of the movie  felt quite silly and sadly not as smart as such a story ought to be. Wayans’s character ended up being too over the top in pats to be amusing. I’ve basically concluded that I’ll probably have to stick to a younger me’s memories of Senseless (1998), one of the few Wayans performances I really enjoyed. There’s also the Scream parody films Scary Movie too, I think.

This year alone I’ve seen 3 movies all for the first time and about characters re-living the same day over and over again. There are a few well executed moments in Naked but not enough to make this movie the kind I recommend.

Watch it if you must, but only if you simply must.

Starring Marlon Wayans, Regina Hall and Dennis Haysbert , Naked is all about a soon to be groom who is nervous about his big day and is forced to relive the same nerve-wracking hours over and over again until he gets things right on his wedding day…

Directed by  Michael Tiddes, I want to see this one because I have fond memories of Marlon Wayans after watching Senseless (1998) in my early youth. I also actually  like this trailer. It seems to get more and more amusing with each viewing. The magic is in the way he gives up.

Loretta Devine, Cory Hardrict and Dave Sheridan also star.

Naked Release Dates: August 11th, 2017 (US)…
