Starring Marlon Wayans, Regina Hall, Dennis Haysbert, Eliza Coupe, Minka Kelly, Scott Foley
Inane. Unfunny. Rip-off.
This Netflix original film starring Marlon Wayans is not the most miserable movie experience I’ve ever had. That’s the best thing that can be said for it. Yet another Groundhog Day wannabe clone, Naked puts its star, on the eve of his wedding, through an endless time loop that begins with him waking up naked in an elevator. The premise isn’t very funny and neither is the resulting film. The mystery-someone’s trying to sabotage the wedding-is the most enjoyable part of the film, and yet, it’s as complex as a ziploc bag. There’s nothing in this film to keep us engaged, and the repetition only makes it worse.
