Groundhog Day has become the anchor of movies with a time loop at the center of the narrative. It was the first film to bring the concept to mainstream movies, and since then we’ve seen it employed in a variety of genres with films like Run Lola Run, Primer, Deja Vu, Source Code, Edge of Tomorrow, and most recently, Before I Fall. Now we’re circling back to a comedic approach with a new title coming to Netflix later this year.
Naked stars Marlon Wayans as Rob Anderson, a man who should have been taking care of all the important things a groom has to do before getting married, like writing his vows. Instead, Rob went out to party and wakes up the next morning naked in a hotel elevator with one hour to get to his wedding. As you’ve surmised, even after the day plays out, Rob keeps waking up naked in that elevator.
