Naked (2017)

Director:

Michael Tiddes

Starring:

Marlon Wayans

Regina Hall

Dennis Haysbert

Plot:

Nervous about finally getting married, a guy is forced to relive the same nerve-wracking hours over and over again until he gets things right on his wedding day.

Review:

I love repeat day story lines and I really liked the idea of this one, but I felt like the writing and execution was lacking. I still have no idea if Wayans was living just one hour over and over or if it was more. In the movie he says one hour, but there is no way he could have done everything he was supposed to in one hour. The church bells also had something to do with it, maybe he was the only one that heard them? But that isn’t right either because he asked the minister about stopping them. It would have taken nothing to properly explain but it wasn’t.

The movie was supposed to be a romantic comedy, at least I think it was, but there wasn’t enough of either. I was supposed to think that Wayans grew up and became worthy of his girl, but the thing is he was already clearly in love with her and she already loved him so why did he have to “grow up” for their friends and family?

This was a romantic comedy for men and lacked many of the things I expect in that genre. The romance was glossed over and I honestly didn’t laugh once. It was overall a disappointment.

2/5

Dennis Haysbert

Plot:

Backstrom, the renowned misanthropic police detective, takes on new and daunting cases.

Review:

I like Rainn Wilson from watching him on The Office so I tried this out. Pretty disappointed. There was nothing that really stood out. It’s a lot of familiar tropes and while I like how gruff and insensitive Wilson is he didn’t have any positive qualities. I kind of like a good quality or two. He did have a kid living with him that could either be his son, or more than likely his father’s bastard child, but I didn’t get the feeling he did it out of any kind of goodness,

The supporting cast didn’t give me a reason to watch either.

With all the other good shows out there this one just doesn’t make the cut.
