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
