Sextuplets Review: Marlon Wayans Multi Character Netflix Comedy

Sextuplets is a 2019 Netflix comedy produced by Marlon Wayans.  The main character Alan shockingly learns that he was born as a sextuplet and goes on a journey to meet all of his siblings.  Marlon plays all of the siblings, which immediately made us think of the Eddie Murphy movies The Nutty Professor (where he plays the Klumps) and Norbit.

brand-new movie on Netflix sextuplets
02:33

02:37
Wayans family brothers was the whole
02:40
family but only two brothers to do a
02:41
thing of course they were Assad only
02:46
found a bluff a musical publisher the
02:48
company it gives you music and
02:49
instruments to Marcy based across the
02:51
nation I'm joined by my compadre some
02:56
guys got pump talk down here that very
03:01
party easy uncle Russell
03:03
terrible movie how for drinks
03:11
I wanna a little comedy list of epic
03:15
movies I guess for myself
03:16
let's go let's get into it so as you
03:20
were gonna do the knife pulling reviews
03:22
first and then break into our spoiler
03:24
review with Chuck Taylor you got a
03:26
certain non spoilery review on
03:28
sextuplets oh right
03:31
six tablets Marlon just doing this uh
03:35
how many movies have on my Netflix two
03:38
or three no yeah might make it
03:41
he was like run around naked get down a
03:43
little bit and see that that was
03:47
actually pretty funny I think this one
03:49
naked I think it's pretty funny but this
03:55
one I could say it was a decent watch it
03:57
was pretty good you know first going
04:00
into it because it's playing all six
04:02
characters you're thinking of the club
04:04
to think of the eddie murphy things
04:05
Norbit so you're gonna automatically go
04:08
right okay it better be as funny as
04:10
boobs cuz Eddie is the one that brought
04:12
this along so seeing this
04:14
part of one of the first people first of
04:16
the comic comedians I've seen that
04:18
actually tried to do all the characters
04:20
in the movie I think I've seen them do
04:23
like one or two characters but that'd be
04:24
all like six or seven different
04:26
characters on one movie was pretty
04:29
amazing
04:29
um so I thought I got only good price
04:32
tomorrow for doing that cuz oh he wasn't
04:33
he was 70 characters right head of the
04:35
monsoon plus the mom so he was working
04:40
with the wife as well I mean that was
04:44
some really great makeup was it it was
04:47
the grandmother the grandma was a girl
04:50
mine there was no grandma in there I was
04:52
making something up but uh but y'all
04:56
don't props you know play all those I'm
04:58
not sure how many cakes and pets they
05:00
have to do the babies but they look
05:01
seamless like a little like they were
05:03
all in the same room so I can't tell
05:04
anything was different so I want to just
05:06
say give him props on that and just kind
05:10
of going into the movie it was it was
05:11
pretty decent it wasn't super funny it
05:15
has some a lot of jokes that land some
05:17
of the characters were born as you know
05:19
from you know remember rule as some of
05:22
the other ones like you have your fame
05:23
you'll find your favorite yah27
05:27
as you like throughout movie but I've
05:31
always decent watch and it's not Eddie
05:33
Murphy's nowhere nowhere clear nowhere
05:35
close to clubs on orbit it won't have
05:38
you dying laughing but you will get some
05:40
laughter I think it's it's a decent
05:42
Netflix comedy film and I think Marlin
05:45
just keep he doesn't keep it keep going
05:47
just keep bringing them up keep bringing
05:48
them out
05:49
he found a vehicle with Netflix I'm glad
05:51
he's putting out his own shows and
05:54
movies and I think as long as he just
05:57
keeps it out but what about you hey let
06:03
me stop you right there Chuck because
06:05
you are not Jesus or Obama okay now I'm
06:14
I have to agree with you 100% of
06:16
everything that you said yes when you
06:20
watch it you automatically think about
06:22
Eddie Murphy and the clumps and yeah the
06:25
Nutty Professor said then even going
06:26
back to coming to America he
06:28
was the one that started that far as we
06:30
know and really put his statement his
06:32
broken foot off in it and uh yeah nobody
06:35
has duplicated to that level yet even in
06:38
this movie it's it's a it's a poor
06:40
contrast I mean he does some of the
06:43
characters like Chuck said are really
06:44
good like Wow
06:46
but but the fact that some of the other
06:48
characters are not so good at it really
06:51
kind of brings it back down again you
06:53
know the average just brings it right
06:55
back to the middle again the story
06:57
itself kind of starts good but when you
07:00
get to the end and just like yeah let's
07:02
just end this like it really didn't come
07:05
to any actual conclusion that made sense
07:08
it just yeah we're at the ending now I
07:10
don't know if they ran out of money or
07:12
what happened you'll see what I'm
07:15
talking about like you have all this
07:16
build-up in order to you know build the
07:18
story up and then it's like well kind of
07:21
what was the point of all of that so I
07:22
was a little disappointed um I will say
07:25
though I was kind of impressed by Marlon
07:28
his portrayal of nice a portrayal for
07:35
those who don't know check this
07:36
portrayal in like almost every episodes
07:38
now I've got to say it fairly but um I
07:41
like this I like how he played the main
07:44
character Allen I assume automatically
07:47
that he was gonna play the character as
07:49
being over-the-top like I've seen him in
07:52
pretty much every other movie that I've
07:53
seen you know get over the top and kind
07:56
of silly and stuff but actually I like
07:58
this character I thought I scared too
08:00
had a little nuance he was interesting
08:02
he wasn't just trying to be funny all
08:04
the time which which I enjoyed him in
08:06
his character made the character move
08:09
the rest of the movie much more
08:10
interesting for me because we were able
08:12
to follow him but that's all we're gonna
08:15
tell you it's mediocre to me go see it
08:19
or not it's not a bad movie but it's
08:21
definitely not one I think you're gonna
08:23
you know watch you know three years
08:25
three four years and now you're like hey
08:26
that's such a such movie let's watch
08:28
that at the cookout right knows it's not
08:30
right there anyway time to get into the
08:34
spoiler review so we gotta give you our
08:36
spoil alert six times
08:43
[Music]
08:46
[Laughter]
08:51
let's dig deep into this movie sir what
08:54
do you have to say about it in Bollywood
08:57
all right so just get down to it I felt
09:00
that the story was not another word to
09:10
say it just wasn't written very well it
09:13
wasn't very complex it was kind of a
09:15
little Elementary in a way some of the
09:20
reasoning behind some of the characters
09:22
on why they were acting certain ways was
09:24
kind of stupid to me it didn't really
09:26
make sense why so many people would do
09:29
this type so it's kind of over two tons
09:32
full of you so you know I have to say
09:34
some of those characters like what
09:36
characters in their next detail I guess
09:40
the main thing with him tone that he
09:43
didn't I guess he'll not explain that
09:45
his mom was dead well look Russell
09:48
saying that the mom was dead to me I was
09:50
like I guess that brought the movie
09:53
alone but it to me I would have kind of
09:56
hoping that she was dead Yanis with you
09:58
and that's what the reason that went on
10:00
the whole trips war but I kind of felt
10:02
let down when she was alive me I was
10:04
like oh she is a lot okay that was
10:09
pointless and I guess Russell and I was
10:14
Alan what was his name you yeah thank
10:18
you okay so Alan in Russells just I
10:24
don't know they had too much time
10:26
together
10:26
and Rose wasn't that funny like he was
10:31
with the sister like when the sister got
10:33
in the picture
10:33
he got actually got funny Rosa was kind
10:36
of Doge it's the bull part was kind of
10:38
night it was funny a little bit but then
10:40
just kind of over the top with the bull
10:42
thing so mm-hmm
10:45
this is a his whole scene like even when
10:47
they were throwing a pillow fight wasn't
10:49
there it was kind of like can we go on
10:51
so they can find some more people well
10:53
thank you I'll do something else
10:55
yes the party spent a lot of time before
10:58
guys yeah great
11:01
it's like half the movies Russell I
11:02
really like their relationship their
11:05
relationship was only one elf being
11:06
built to up home it's been all that type
11:09
of russell and spent like less than five
11:12
minutes with Jasper you know like yeah
11:14
that didn't didn't make a lot any other
11:16
just trying to take some fur on me yeah
11:19
the chicken up the sister she got Jill I
11:22
mean she did beat up to the trucker's
11:24
that was hilarious social shopping for
11:26
claws but it just I don't know I just
11:42
never really connected that well
11:45
throughout the movie and one other part
11:47
the worst thing was a little aggravating
11:49
than me because she kind of sent him on
11:51
this trip to do this and she knew she
11:54
was aren't pregnant like she about that
11:56
baby and they're like you seemed like
11:57
every five seconds like well you need to
11:59
be home cuz you know we got this class
12:05
Nick's random people on in the in the
12:08
world that you deserve a check which I'm
12:12
not the movie here not real life so that
12:31
whole part was like okay get to the
12:34
funny stuff so I guess if they would
12:36
have had better jokes maybe I wouldn't
12:38
focus so much on the sorry frightening
12:40
but you know the last we're lacking it
12:44
was like part of the rails like is this
12:46
supposed to be a comedy he's not ready
12:47
that plenty I'm just watching it with
12:49
Jeff Marlins on it and I got to review
12:50
it but I might have turned it off like
12:53
halfway through if I have to see the
12:54
whole thing it wasn't really one eat so
12:58
I thought I gave it is the okay watch
13:00
was it something that I'm gonna pitch or
13:03
just run out to see the next one if he
13:05
makes another one
13:07
like the Klumps or something so but you
13:10
know I'm trying to think of some other
13:12
spoilers that will be good
13:13
oh I guess the one part I did like we
13:16
say I'm gonna be like when they were
13:17
when Russell was driving the car to the
13:21
murder room that was fine he was like
13:23
looking that stuck around and police
13:25
were chasing on everything he's not
13:28
sting he look backs out by the home when
13:31
the whole part have another funny
13:35
character went up a lot more and he a
13:39
lot better didn't know was I good I was
13:44
even his reaction like how he had Jasper
13:47
related to each other I got something
13:48
yes good yep the one that was playing
13:54
him at the con artists brother eat
13:57
that's Ethan Ethan he surprised me
14:02
because I didn't like understand why he
14:04
was there he just like disappeared on
14:06
the next scene and I was like what's
14:09
happening now looking at another brother
14:14
or something he's gonna meet this person
14:15
like I didn't know he was trying to take
14:17
his identity for it like probably until
14:20
he was with the boss in the rows okay so
14:23
he then what's an office okay well he
14:26
wants money and everything like that but
14:28
that was pretty funny but it was just
14:30
hard to understand they're really slow
14:32
very we're all doing the film to me
14:35
I agree with that on that okay come on
14:41
keep trying
14:44
so you already heard me talk about the
14:46
main character Alec
14:48
so I liked him I like going on the
14:50
journey with him I like how he reacted
14:52
to everybody who's that I hate this
14:54
family and all the type of stuff so I'm
14:56
gonna go ahead and rake the other
14:57
characters and number one all I get to
15:00
say is Elaine relevé ass on face plate
15:04
relevant asshole oh man he played dawn
15:16
so well I mean like amazingly will like
15:20
i Julie had if I didn't know going into
15:23
the loopy that that was that that was
15:25
marlon wayans I wouldn't have had a clue
15:26
I mean there wasn't anything about his
15:29
mannerisms or is it disappearance or
15:32
anything that made me think that was a
15:34
dude it was just a big and it look like
15:37
a big old girl if not I mean like he
15:40
didn't fantastic job a play in there man
15:43
everything about it she's so funny when
15:45
she was about to fight those dudes and
15:47
scratching her claws the custard yes yes
15:53
yes I mean like everything about her
15:55
kick every almost every line that she
15:57
delivered with it so that was great with
16:00
them um the next one was Jasper Jasper
16:03
was the one that showed up at the very
16:05
end the light-skinned one that was like
16:07
the secret agent his character was
16:11
interesting to me like I like Jasper and
16:15
you know you're gonna reveal to me hit
16:18
the secrets and reacting and how he was
16:22
trying to be tough but then they started
16:24
singing the song and it's like hi music
16:26
oh you think I'll give in to that like
16:36
we should get some more time with him it
16:39
was it was it was a shame that we get so
16:41
little time with him Ethan that's the
16:43
word the con artist won he was good at
16:45
times like there was some times it's
16:46
like okay that's funny like when he was
16:48
with the boss and stuff and there's some
16:50
of you other times when it was good but
16:51
those other times it's like it's
16:54
character kind of looks like I'm I don't
16:57
know it was weird it there's times when
16:59
it seemed like Marlon Wayans playing
17:01
somebody else instead of him actually
17:04
being another person that just so
17:06
happened to look like the main character
17:08
you know what I mean like it was just it
17:10
was weird sometimes baby Pete I could
17:13
have passed on baby
17:14
his character was he's very forgettable
17:22
yes he's just sick in this too he just
17:25
wants to get I don't know it at some
17:27
part of me is like are you just picking
17:29
are you just taking on that one person
17:31
family there's always sick
17:37
yeah from the next to the last one was
17:43
Russell I thought his character was
17:44
weird
17:45
the voice was terrible and he made me
17:47
ask like who acts like it's weird to say
17:52
you sorry about that
17:56
sorry Russell you're you're great bro
17:57
you're great
18:03
all the of you know the beauty marks
18:05
that's the attraction right this wasn't
18:10
balanced very well they were spending so
18:12
much time but Tim really took me out of
18:14
the book in it it was it took for them
18:17
to get to dawn and then some of the
18:20
things that Russell did at the end and
18:21
bringing it Jasper they kind of brought
18:23
that movie back up again but if they
18:25
kind of bounce that out a little bit
18:27
more it made sense um a couple more
18:29
dislikes what's this all the kiss kiss
18:31
your brother stuff and kiss your mom
18:33
stuff that happened at the end of the
18:35
movie it just kind of came out of left
18:36
field it is like oh brother
18:53
oh yeah yeah I might do that that'd mean
19:01
like nah do but and the story fell apart
19:08
at the end like you're doing all this
19:10
and want to get your family what
19:12
shouldn't happen at the end is that
19:14
everybody in the family should have gone
19:16
with Allen in order to go be there for
19:19
him in order to you know they help the
19:22
baby be born they all should have been
19:24
running interference from him the fact
19:26
that it was just him and Russell but
19:28
that was cool but Jasper should have
19:30
been a part of it
19:31
I mean Jasper had all this if he's got
19:33
henchmen and what happened to the
19:37
henchmen anyway I don't see the car over
19:42
the road the cargo van
19:45
oh okay I forgot that but yeah but the
19:49
hitch-pin should have been there in
19:50
order to help run interference in order
19:52
to make this happen
19:53
Jasper should have been a part of that
19:55
why was it
19:56
why didn't dawn show up let dawn didn't
19:58
show up until the very last scene and
20:00
she's just like back but you just stole
20:03
this car disappeared it's gone she
20:07
should have been there at the end to be
20:09
a part like it should I don't know if
20:10
they just didn't have enough money in
20:11
the budget they have like all of the
20:13
characters they're all at one time like
20:15
to do again and another professor but
20:17
that really should have been the climax
20:18
the whole story is about bringing the
20:21
family together so the families should
20:23
be there during the climax not during
20:26
the not during the exposition yes just
20:29
yeah Springs it out on screens like do
20:51
they mean for us to just say that can
20:53
they're only talking about that baby
20:54
here so um yeah this movie is kind of
21:06
forgettable it's not bad that's not a
21:07
bad movie but yeah you go it would have
21:16
been better for Netflix than a movie so
21:18
anything else needs to be said about
21:20
this I'll let you go ahead and close it
21:27
out there sir cereal no more cocoa puffs
21:38
