VOD Review - Naked (2017)
In Fifty Shades of Black, Wayans does show a penis attached to his body. It's simply not his own. It's a prosthetic. The joke is to portray a micro-penis, a joke stolen from Adam Scott in The Overnight (2015). Wayans shows every other square-inch of his skin and the idea is the trouble he encounters while running around in public with no clothes on, which is actually a joke Wayans stole from himself and his starring role in Senseless (1998). He was running around nude in that film and it's apparent that in nearly 20 years, he hasn't aged a day. His face and body look exactly the same.
The rest of the humor is derived from the same kind of gags and jokes in Groundhog Day (1993). Instead of a whole day, Wayans' character has a hour that he has to relive over and over, so this is more like "Groundhog Hour." It limits all that can happen, but in a way it super concentrates the movie's focus. It doesn't really allow for the movie or characters to breath once it gets going and it's fueled by the fervent energy that Wayans typically brings. Of all the Wayans siblings, Marlon Wayans can be the boldest, the loudest and most in-your-face. He's tempered here but if you're not taken with his particular charm, the movie might not work for you.
Running Time: 1 hr. and 36 mins.
