Seriously! So I wasn’t with it. Lol But I LOVE Marlon, and I saw a few people on Facebook say it was okay, so I figured I’d give it a shot, and I’m glad I did!
It wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be! Not at all! And I’m still shocked! I just finished watching Sextuplets on Netflix, and it’s definitely a classic Marlon movie. So if you LOVE you some Marlon, you’ll probably love this movie.
If you enjoyed Naked, and/or Marlon (his Netflix series) then you’ll definitely wanna watch this to.
Is Sextuplets on Netflix any good?
I mean it’s nothing amazing, but it’s not incredibly disgusting to watch either. I mean, I made it through the entire thing. So I guess that should say something right? Lol (So what if I was texting and scrolling through Facebook half the time?)
Sextuplets is clearly meant to be just a funny, laid back, easy to watch, play it in the background while I get some work done, kind of movie. If it was terrible I wouldn’t have even bothered. Lol It was kind of cute! Like cute in a cheesy, Marlon way. Lol (The same way Family Reunion is cute. Lol)
However, the message about how family will always have your back rings clear throughout this entire movie and adds a nice emotional touch to this comedy.
I also couldn’t help but think of my siblings while watching Sextuplets on Netflix! The way they made fun of each other, and how Russel would complain about how he hated having siblings. Lol (Despite JUST finding out he had 5 a few days before.) It all felt so familiar! It’s the exact same way my family is. Lol So it was cute to watch that play out on TV.
But did Marlon successfully play all seven roles?
Yup, that’s right! He played SEVEN roles! All six kids, plus the mama. Lawd! Lol I mean it was kinda nice to see Marlon try to play different roles. (Even though some of them were a tragic mess. Lol)
But he’s clearly no Eddie Murphy. (When I was younger I didn’t even realize Eddie was playing a few of those darn characters. Lol) As for Marlon and Sextuplets?
I honestly only liked Russel out of all seven characters. Russel was the only character I could believe was an actual character.
Everyone else just felt like improv gone wrong! Like he was trying way too hard to be something he wasn’t and it was weird. God let’s not even talk about Jasper or Baby Pete! Why were those two even characters? Sigh! Lol
Should you watch Sextuplets on Netflix?
In all, Sextuplets was pretty good! At least it was way better than what I expected. Lol And I actually enjoyed seeing a few familiar faces in the cast!
Bresha Webb played Marlon’s wife. (Which I found oddly ironic, since she also plays Marlons wife’s best friend in the Netflix series Marlon and they swore up and down they hated each other. Lol Ain’t that some shit? Lol)
However, Glynn Turman and Debbi Morgan also played minor roles in this film, and it was great to see them again. (Dang, I said that as if they were my mama’s old ass friends I ain’t seen in a long time! Lol)
However, if you’re not a Marlon fan or don’t like cheesy comedies, then this ain’t the movie for you!
Try watching Always Be My Maybe (Netflix’s rom com that’s almost as great as Crazy Rich Asians), Rim of the World (an intense, kids adventure movie made for adults only), or Man like Mobeen (a Netflix British comedy series) instead! All still funny, and entertaining, but totally not cheesy. Lol
