Netflix: What’s new with Marlon?

Marlon’s “Sextuplets” is a goofy mess.

‘Sextuplets’ film short on laughter.

Blog King, Mass Appeal

HOLLYWOOD — Marlon Wayans’ latest Netflix conception, “Sextuplets,” isn’t his best work. As a matter of fact, many critics believe it’s downright chintzy and completely void of guffaws. Rotten Tomatoes gave it a craptacular score of 33 percent on its Tomatometer. Jason Bailey, film critic with the New York Times, trashed it. So did Nick Allen with RogerEbert.com. One of many in the cinematic history of banal family reunion films, “Sextuplets” tells the narrative of 47-year-old Alan; a father-to-be orphan who goes on a prolonged road trip to track down his biological mother.

Along the way, Alan — played by Marlon — learns he has a quintet of identical siblings; hence the title “Sextuplets.” In addition to Alan’s portrayal, Marlon fulfills the zany roles of the other five children plus the family matriarch with many of the characters appearing onscreen concomitantly (reminiscent of Eddie Murphy’s “Nutty Professor”).

Each dramatis personae has his or her own distinct mein and articulation coupled with an impeccable display of hairstyles and cosmetics. But they all come up nanoscopic in the comedy department. Hate to say it, but “Sextuplets” is a nugatory slapstick that’s a step down from Marlon’s “Naked (2017).”

The saving grace are periodic references made to a handful of 70s shows; namely “Mash,””Diff’rent Strokes,””Mork & Mindy” and “The Rockford Files.” Don’t get it twisted. “Sextuplets” has its moments. But if you’re in dire need of a Wayans fix, you’d be sagacious to binge his “Marlon” sitcom instead.

    I wanted to enjoy it but was tough when every 5th line was some racist shit against stereotypes. Must be nice to be able to do that without outrage.

  18. My opinion….. And dont hate me for this..

    This film couldn’t be any better…

  19. Eddie: hey marlon i have an idea for your next movie
    Marlon: whats that?
    Eddie: why dont you play yourself but in different characters?
    Marlon:๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”

  24. who the hell asked for a marlon wayans movie where he plays every character?

  25. karamel macchiato

    This is a classic already. Funny as hell… If he writes like this he needs to go I to making comedies like made a and Eddie…. He’ll be on top in no time. ๐Ÿ”ฅ ๐Ÿ”ฅ ๐Ÿ”ฅ

  26. I just watched it and itโ€™s sooooo funny ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚.

  27. Sorry to say, but the Wayans’ have lost their mojo! They haven’t been funny in years!๐Ÿ˜•๐Ÿ˜ฉ

  28. There’s not funny there’s extremely Unfunny then there’s this disturbingly not funny Manure. I’d pay a lot of money to
    Not watch this Muck.

  29. Why do we need to see Marlon Wayans dressed up as a woman??? It was bad enough when it was Eddie Murphy and Martin Lawrence!!!

  30. Another movie making Black men look weak. Thanks Marlon Wayans….. We really needed this one

  31. This movie was actually funny!!! It’s way better than White Chicks and Little Man!!!

  32. Chester Cheetah

  35. Night Hammerhero

    I’m a white guy, loving marlon William’s movies, i watched the previous that was on netflix, it was funny, this guy is a great actor, i hope he’s getting paid good money for doing netflix movies.

  36. Rushelle Bernard

    I DC what nobody say this is a must watch !!! Funny as shit

  37. Marlon is funny. In my opinion Sextuplets was wack. The comedy came off force and story line seem dragged

  38. I watched it last night and it was the funniest movie I have seen in a long time. Marlon…congrats bro. Lil P and Jasper were my favorite ones.

  39. I watched it. it has some funny parts but it’s kind of a low point for Marlon Wayans

  40. youdontknow da1/2

    this shit was funny asf. brought the old corniness back and somehow it worked. solid 7/10 a little too much sometimes on the stereotype side

  41. Fake ass Eddie Murphy, The clumps

  42. shakemia scott

    Reminds me of norbit so much ๐Ÿ’€๐Ÿ˜‚

  43. Yeaaaa he lost his touch ages ago, this looks awful

  44. No I wasn’t feeling it. I have laughed my ass off in the past. Scary movie, White Chicks, Little Man. All hilarious but this one did’nt make me laugh much. I think it had a too serious touch and forced jokes. I really wanted to enjoy it but I just didn’t find myself doing that.

  45. Nobody can ever do it better (multi character) than Eddie Murphy

  46. This movie was too funny ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ i love the sister .. lol
